Japanese Classes for Kids in NYC

Japanese Classes for Kids in NYC

Thank you for your interest in our Japanese classes for kids. Japanese is one of the most popular Asian languages in New York City and is great language to learn when students are of a young age. Hills Learning offers both private and group classes for kids to learn about this fascinating culture and language.


Hills Learning through years of teaching in some of the top schools in New York City has developed a program for teaching kids Japanese. Classes are a mix of language instruction combined with fun activities, games, and songs. Basic vocabulary and grammar, along with the basic alphabets Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji  are taught to children of all ages.

Private lessons follow our SWIRL method of combining all five language skills (Speaking, Writing, Intonation, Reading and Listening). Lessons are usually held at the student’s residence or at our center. We’ve taught kids from 6 months to 16 years old, so it’s never too late to start looking into Japanese language instruction for your child.

Are you interested in having your child take Japanese but would like to have a group setting for a class? How about you know a few parents in the area and would like to have a Japanese playgroup at your home?

Hills Learning not only provides regular private lessons at the home but also opportunities to start a playgroup in your area for learning Japanese. The playgroups can be customized to match any level of language, and also any age of student. Please contact us for more information and availability in your area.
