Japanese is a popular language to learn among people who are interested in business, foreign trade, tourism, world travel, anime and J-Pop. Memorial is currently offering five levels of Japanese language instruction. The Town of Stony Plain is also twinned with Shikaoi, a town in Hokkaido, Japan, and this sister-school relationship allows for constant communication between Japanese and Canadian students and teachers through reciprocal exchanges and visits.
All Japanese classes are worth five credits. Students enrolled in Japanese courses will also have opportunities throughout the year to experience authentic use of the language and culture.
