A year ago, I wrote about schools that offer Nihongo classes. You may read the full entry on my tumblr account. I only wrote about five options which are the Nihongo Center Foundation, Unmei Nihongo Center, UP Department of Linguistics, Tesda Language Skills Institute, and the Japan Foundation Manila. Little did I know that Jellyfish Education Consultancy also offers Nihongo classes too.
But first, WHAT IS JELLYFISH EDUCATION CONSULTANCY?
