Japanese Teaching Association

Interested in studying Japanese?



The SIFA Japanese teaching association is a group of SIFA members who volunteer their time to help non-Japanese living in Shikokuchuo with their Japanese studies. The group was formed to address the desire of the increasing number of non-Japanese living in Shikokuchuo to study the Japanese language.


Any non-Japanese person living in Shikokucho can study Japanese for free as long as they are a member of SIFA (see the Membership Page for more details).
