At Kumon, where students start and how they progress through their studies is individualized. We believe that if a person starts from a level that is easy to do, and then advances in a step-by-step way, they will be able to accomplish their goals. The worksheets and learning method of our French and German programs were created based on this conviction that has been developed over the last 50 years at Kumon. An experienced Instructor provides each student with firm support. Our programs have been receiving high praise from university students and working people as well.

Voices of students of German
“While studying German at Kumon, I became able to communicate with foreign visitors at my workplace in a way that felt similar to communicating with Japanese guests. I no longer have a complex about my English ability, either. I am amazed at the great change I have experienced.” (K. from Tokyo)
“After starting Kumon's German program I looked forward to reading The Ugly Duckling and The Nutcracker, which I had become familiar with in my childhood, in German. After reading them in German, I found that I understood the stories in a different way.” (K. from Tokyo)
“I finally completed the whole program. It is all thanks to the encouraging words of my Instructor. Even though I was slow to advance, my Instructor repeatedly let me know that she was impressed by my determination to continue.” (I. from Chiba)
Through penmanship and calligraphy, we aim to convey the joy of continuous learning.
