Japanese Practice Sessions

About MIA's Japanese Practice Sessions

These sessions are held by MIA in order to provide a place for foreign nationals, as well as Japanese visitors of foreign descent, to learn the necessary Japanese skills to get by in their daily lives around Miyakonojo City and Mimata Town.

Our Japanese Teaching Assistants, or Japanese Volunteers, provide support for all of the attending students in a one-on-one setting where possible, or in groups of small numbers when necessary.

*Please note that due to the nature and intent of these study sessions,those seeking additional assistance in order to study for a JLPT exam may be turned down.
