➀ VLJ Text

The VLJ text pdf has been designed for easy self-learning. For example, the grammar explanations are linked with the video lessons on the learning website (LMS), and many example sentences are included in the text.
The font is large and the material is not cluttered, so it is easy to understand, even for beginners. The text also has icon symbols to make it easy to see where the learning website (LMS) or app can be used, so it is very straightforward for the learner to follow.

② VLJ Learning Website

The VLJ Learning Website (LMS) includes short videos by Principal Ezoe explaining the crucial grammar points, videos with conversation scenes where the grammar is used, and quizzes to check whether the learner understood the grammar lesson.
If you have any questions as you progress through the course, you can ask them on the site and get answers from the Japanese instructor.

③ VLJ App

The VLJ app allows for learning on smartphones and tablets. The words and grammar learned on VLJ can be repeatedly reviewed to ingrain the lessons. Game-like elements are used to learn Japanese pronunciation and hearing practice for words that are often mistaken. Available in 8 languages (Japanese, English, Chinese (Traditional or Simplified), French, Portuguese, Arabic, Vietnamese).
