Children’s Japanese Language Support

Children’s Japanese Language Support Volunteers can assist children of varying Japanese abilities aged 6 to 8 who have difficulty communicating in Japanese in their daily lives, or who are fine with everyday Japanese but have trouble keeping up with their schoolwork. The time and place of support is decided between the teacher and student.
