Learning a second language boosts problem-solving, critical-thinking, and listening skills, in addition to improving memory, concentration, and the ability to multitask. 

Miss Kazu is passionate about early childhood development and teaches the children about Japanese culture by using music and short film clips allowing them to learn the language through sounds rather than individual words.

She teaches Japanese in a fun and engaging way encouraging the children to sing songs to help them learn. It’s never too early to begin learning a language: it’s fun, it promotes healthy development, and the many cognitive and social benefits will last a lifetime. Miss Kazu teaches us about the characters from Hige-jie-san, a song she sings with the children in their Japanese lessons.
