Do you want to learn Japanese to better understand and appreciate Japanese culture and history? Is Japan just on your must-visit list?

Sunshine Place and multilingual instructor María Gladys Tomas will offer the fundamentals of nihongo in a 15-session workshop every Saturday starting today.

Whether you’re an adventurer looking for your next destination or a student looking to expand your horizons, this course will help you get started by teaching you some of the basics in a fun and easy way.

Learning a new language will strengthen the first or second language. Moreover, learning a new language sharpens the mind, improves brain power and decision-making skills. From the familiar to the unfamiliar, our workshops can help the brain exercise mentally.

The Fundamentals of Nihongo course is for travelers, students, and anyone else who wants to quickly pick up the basics in an engaging way.

The students are also in good hands with Tomas as the facilitator. She graduated from AB Mass Communication at St. Scholastica’s College – Manila. She obtained her Masters in Business Administration from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines – Manila campus.

Tomas is a multilingual instructor who handles French, Spanish, Italian, German and Nihongo, and has passed the prescribed proficiency exams for these languages. She is also the executive director and founder of the MGGT Language Tutorial Center.

Tomas studied at the Nihongo Center Foundation and is a JLPT Level 4 passer. She currently teaches at San Beda College-Alabang, Manila Tytana Colleges, and Assumption College, teaching French, Spanish, German, and Nihongo to students. His other professional achievements include providing training in French, Spanish and Nihongo to professors at Benguet State University and Saint Louis University in the Cordillera Autonomous Region, teaching Spanish for different vocations at the Language Skills Institute.

All classes are done via Zoom. If a senior is not knowledgeable, Sunshine Place staff provide free remote technical setup training to both the senior, caregiver, caregiver/nurse. Sunshine Place also encourages tutors to join so they both watch over the senior and benefit from the class themselves.
