Why use Video Games and

Anime to Teach?



Learning a language can be very difficult and sometimes stressful. Therefore, many challengers are left unsuccessful due to the inconsistency of learning. Our teaching model is to make the lesson effective and enjoyable as possible. With entertaining lessons and charismatic teachers, we aim for students to consistently wanting to learn more and play more. 

Better Communication Skills


Video games are a platform for entertainment, but it is also a great platform for making friends and communicating. Just like in any other team sports, communication is vital for  succeeding . By conversing in Japanese with teachers and other  students, they will build a better understanding of expressing themselves and understanding others.

Invest instead of Spend


We now live in an age where people cannot live their daily life without the internet and the entertainment it brings. It is becoming more common for the youth to be spending time playing video games. We believe that time is a valuable asset, and just like money in most cases, it is better to invest it rather than just spend it. By joining JaFunese, we can change the "spending time" into "investing time." 

Teaching Mannerism


As many people are aware, Japanese people are known to be very polite and well mannered. On the other hand, without proper supervision on the internet, it is easy for kids to develop poor internet manners, which can also translate into real world manners. Thus, we will also be teaching proper mannerism when meeting people and communicating with them through the internet.
