Burnley Colleges’ Exciting New Japanese Club helps Students Cultivate Cultural Skills

Burnley College has taken pride in embracing growing interest of Japan with the introduction of our very own Japanese club.

The globalisation of Japanese culture is sweeping nations worldwide, and this exciting new enrichment is available to all Burnley College Sixth Form Centre Students, whether they are an avid anime streamer, dedicated to learning Japanese or are simply eager to expand their knowledge of other cultures. Japanese club is the perfect place to do so.

At Burnley College we pride ourselves on providing our students with a variety of enrichment opportunities that nourish young minds, paving the way to their futures. Japanese club is just one of the many activities we run every single week to offer a range of experiences to our Students.

Organising Tutor Edith Carley is passionate about sharing her expertise with students, after studying German and Japanese at university before studying for a year in Osaka, Japan.

Our students are enjoying exploring the language and culture of Japan, as a fun and ambitious addition to their studies.

A Level Student Dylan Culos, who is studying Economics, Film and French feels that Japanese club is a convenient way to learn an additional language in his spare time:



“I really hope to visit Japan at some point – I think they have a really interesting culture

Another club member, Ali Sendhi, who is studying A Level Maths, Chemistry and Physics, loves anime and watches it in his free time so learning Japanese has a substantial appeal to him:>


“I really want to go to Tokyo, it looks cool. This will help me understand more about anime.”
