    This fall term, JASO is offering a NEW Japanese Language Class in-person, in Salem! This class is for beginners, for all with no or little real study about the language, or for those who wish to review the very basics of the language.

    Term starts Tuesday September 20th for 8 weeks; class runs from 6 to 7:30pm at the Salem Multicultural Institute offices at 390 Liberty Rd SE, on the ground floor of the Marco Polo Restaurant building, across from City Hall.

    Students will study using the Genki I, 3rd edition textbook and workbook, which must be purchased separately and brought to class.

    Your teacher is Ohba-sensei, who holds an MSc in Education: ESOL, and BSc in Speech Communication. Sensei has taught Japanese for over 15 years, including high school and college programs in Oregon. She is also a taiko performer with local group Takohachi Taiko!

    We are offering special introductory pricing for these classes - just $225 if you sign up before September 6th, $265 for sign up from Sept 7th to 15th.

    We need a minimum of 5 students to sign up for class, in order to run the term. Language classes are a benefit of JASO membership, so make sure you're a member first - from $30/year. Membership details and benefits HERE.

    Process

    Sign-up online. Pay the fee. We will then contact you directly to help prepare for first class.
