Long Beach Japanese Cultural
Language School in Long Beach, CA
Long Beach Japanese Language School (LBJLS) was set up in 1949 for the goal of delivering Japanese language and culture instruction to the Harbor District area youth of Japanese descent as its primary target population. But, reflecting drastic social changes that have occurred in the Japanese -American population everywhere through the years, the LBJLS students today are more varied linguistically, culturally and in age groups. To serve such a varied student population effectively, LBJLS has maintained a duel curriculum orientation in recent years.
read moreLong Beach Japanese Language School is unique among Japanese language schools in California. We are not a traditional school serving only Japanese heritage students. Our objective is to serve students of all ages, ethnicities and cultural backgrounds, many of whom come with no previous Japanese language or cultural knowledge. Our instruction emphasizes the Japanese way of thinking, its cultural mannerisms and customs. We are dedicated to educating people who are interested in Japan and want to widen their horizons.
