Sandford Language Institute has been running courses in Japanese since 1989. Our tutors are native speakers and qualified teachers, teaching the communicative use of the language making it as relevant as possible to every day situations. All of the main language skills of Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking and Use of language (Grammar) are developed in class. If you join a class and the level proves too high or low, moving level is no problem. Enrolment for upcoming classes is now possible. Should you have any queries, please contact Shane Zerbe on 01 2601296 or
