Description

Tsubasa Language Services started with a man’s dream to help people out there learn and master the Japanese language affordably. This is the only place in Singapore that teaches the Japanese language along with culture, food, Japan trip planning, the Japanese way of thinking, personal character and moral development.

Students who graduate from the programme move on in life to spread the love for Japan and help others out there. Although all trainers are locals, they have completed the training course for Japanese language teachers (日本語教師養成コース) and accent correction training.

Tsubasa Language Services also collaborates with the Japanese Association of Singapore in their yearly summer festival and Japanese employment agencies to help students find jobs. Also, the carrot: a free ticket to Japan for the best student every year.
