Minato has courses for all kinds of learning needs. "The Marugoto Course" allows you to learn Japanese (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) comprehensively. We recommend "the Hiragana and Katakana courses" for those who are interested in Japanese writing or who want to begin studying Japanese through writing. If anime and manga is your thing, "Japanese in Anime & Manga" is the course for you. Keep an eye on "Minato" for further developments on attractive courses.
Not only will this help you improve as a learner, but it is also surely to become a meeting place for understanding Japan as you feel the presence of friends who are learning with you.
