Welcome to Sasuga Academy!
いっしょに にほんご を おべんきょう しませんか？
Word of the month:
七五三 is held on November 15th. It is an event for 3 years old and 7 years old girls and 5 years old boys.
They wear pretty kimono and visit 神社（じんじゃ）, a shrine on that day. Children and their parents thank god for their healthy growth and pray for their happiness.
There is a special candy called 千歳飴（ちとせあめ）just for this event. Many parents take pictures of their children with this candy.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will temporarily suspend all our lessons held at libraries until they reopen. Adult students may choose an online lesson with their teacher's consent.
Please contact us if you have any questions.

What does sasuga mean?
If you were to look up the word sasuga in the dictionary, it would say "That's great!" Sasuga in Japanese has more than that in its nuance. It is close to the English phrase, "It's so you!" or "No one does it like you!" When a Japanese person praises another person, "Sasuga!" is often said, and when it is written, often followed by an exclamation point (!)
