We are South Africa’s first official Japanese Language Club, founded in 2020. The JLCSA currently has over 200 members, based in both Cape Town, Pretoria and Johannesburg.
We aim to create a space for those who are learning Japanese to meet and socialise, to enable access to resources, to create new opportunities for learning Japanese and about Japanese culture.
We hope to provide South African and Japanese people with as many bridges as possible.
Within the next 5 years we want to:
- Establish an accredited Japanese course that takes learners from beginner to N1 level in South Africa affiliated with South African universities and agencies.
- Establish a high school level student exchange for South Africans and Japanese students.
- Establish a platform that will allow South African and Japanese businesses to connect more easily in a shared language.
Please support us in our goals!
We are open to all partnerships, please feel free to reach out to us if you believe we may have any areas of collaboration or mutual interest.
