Why Japanese?


Sierra Nevada Japanese Language School

シエラネバダ日本語学校         AKA KODOMOKAI-RENO

Studies have shown that learning and speaking different languages helps children to develop better understanding for other people and cultures, helps to perform well at school, and gives more opportunities for jobs when they graduates from college.  

If you love Japanese culture such as Anime and food, we strongly encourage you to come visit our classes.
