Foreign Languages



Konichiwa! Learn the Japanese language to enhance your understanding of the rich Japanese culture and traditions!  Learning a foreign language benefits students as it​​ can deepen ​their understanding of Japanese society and ​culture.    

Some students had previously embarked​ on study trips to Tokyo, Osaka and Yokohama. The programme’s objectives aim to raise awareness and understanding of the Japanese society, history, culture and politics, so as to forge mutual trust ​and friendship among the people of Japan and Singapore.


Immersion Trips

Overseas study trips to Japan aim to enhance NP students’ Japanese language proficiency through understanding the rich Japanese culture in Kagoshima, Kumamoto and Fukuoka.  Highlights included interaction opportunities with students from Kagoshima National College of Technology and Kumamoto National College of Technology. They visited traditional Japanese confectionery factories, had farm stays in the Izumi city and explorations of the history of Kumamoto Castle.


NP Japanese Senpai (seniors in school) had previously participated in the annual Japanese Speech Contests organized by the E​mbassy of Japan and the Japanese Association in Singapore. ​ They were extensively coached by the Sch of IS lecturers and performed very well during the intense rounds of competition. NP students did us proud having garnered several awards and certificates of participation.


Our sensei-tachi (tutors) were really patient with us. I wish to show my gratitude to my tutors for their guidance.
