Louis-François du Toit
Circus artist set on being based in Japan to travel the world from there. With believing that each language and culture brings new mindsets and ways of understanding, I also have a huge passion for languages and cultures.
I'm Juanita. Business woman, wife to an awesome fellow Japanese fanatic and mother of a beautiful little girl. Love the rich culture that Japan has to offer. Would love to unite Japan and South Africa and create a stronger bond through business trade
Please speak to any one of us on our social media or at our events! While our members are from all over South Africa, we conduct our events in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town.
We are South Africa’s first official Japanese Language Club, founded in 2020. The JLCSA currently has over 600 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.
