Three features of Sun Academy (SANC)

2. Thorough Needs Assessment and Level-check

Sun Academy offers free consultation for all newcomers, and one trial lesson is offered without charge. We strongly believe that a thorough needs assessment and checking of the learners' Japanese level are essential for making the necessary improvement. Since our class size is small (2-5), we can respond to the learners' needs individually and thoroughly during the regular lessons.

3. Unique SANC Method

Sun Academy has been pursuing "authentic communication" for years. With the accumulated knowledge and experience, we have developed a "communication build-up method" and published a series of Japanese textbooks, entitled "Nihongo Daijobu!". This unique learning method has proven to be effective in leading the learners to their goal as fast and short period as possible. We are committed to guiding and supporting the learners through the SANC method.
