Nihongo is a unique Saturday program for teenage Japanese heritage speakers offered by the World Languages Institute at Bellevue College. It is one of the few Nihongo classes offered in the Seattle-Bellevue area.
Nihongo lessons for teens
Taught entirely in Japanese, Nihongo lessons welcome teenage heritage speakers who have completed at least the 4th grade of elementary school in Japan (or at a "Hoshuko" in the U.S.) and wish to maintain and develop their Japanese language skills. The Nihongo class focuses exclusively on language arts ("Kokugo"), at a 4th to 6th grade level.
