This year, Orange Coast Gakuen Japanese Language School (OCG) will be hosting an Open House (for fall 2021 classes) on Saturday, Jan. 30, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., virtually.
Japanese language classes are available for students ages 5 to 18 years of age and adults. Pre-school classes for students 3-4 years old are also available, including games, songs, stories, science, crafts, dance, and so much more.
During the pandemic, classes, cultural events and activities are presented virtually, for the safety of the students, teaching staff and parents. Language classes are offered in two tracks: Japanese as a Foreign Language (JFL) and Japanese as a Heritage Language (JHL). JFL classes are for students that do not speak Japanese at home, while JHL classes are for students who speak Japanese at home. All classes are presented in Japanese.
Classes include conversation, reading, writing, speech competitions, and academic presentations, as well as cultural events and activities.

OCG is a weekend language school located at Grace Lutheran Christian School, 5172 W. McFadden Ave., Huntington Beach, CA 92649.
