About KIP's language courses

With the goal of enabling local people to communicate across language barriers, KIP is offering free courses this year in English, Spanish, Chinese, and Japanese.

For each language, the level will be introductory to beginner level, and the courses will meet once a week for 90 minutes over a three-month course.

Priority will be given to those who live and work in Okinawa City and those taking KIP's language courses for the first time , but depending on availability, we also accept applications from people in other cities and towns and those taking the course for the second or subsequent time.

*The course itself is free, but you may be required to purchase commercially available teaching materials (approximately 1,000 to 2,000 yen) designated by the instructor. Please note that the content of the course may be subject to change.
