Founded in 1968 as non-profit making organization, we are committed to promoting deeper understanding and meaningful relationship between the people of Malaysia and Japan through international cultural exchange and active promotion of the learning of Japanese language and cultural among Malaysians.

Since then, we strongly believe that only through the mastery of Japanese language could our relationship with the Japanese be more meaningful, much deeper and long lasting. By learning their language we learn not only of their culture, value and thoughts but also of our own.

Hence,at JLSM we are committed to providing a long-term support for the learning of Japanese by conducting courses ranging from basic to advance level and maintaining a small but adequate learner’s library. But we do not view mastery of Japanese as a goal but rather as a bridge. Thus, we intensify our effort in creating intercultural interactions between the people of Malaysia and Japan. These intercultural interactions are never meant to showcase Japanese culture or vice-verse but to provide a common platform in bringing people of same interest together, bonded by a common language, to work for peace and betterment of mankind. Hence, our name remains as a language society, rather that a cultural society.

Your first step at JLSM

Through the understanding and acquisition of Japanese language, a closer, much deeper, more meaningful and genuine friendship between the people of Malaysia and Japan can be forged and perpetuated as it would help gain valuable and vital understanding on how the Japanese think, feel, live and work, as well as on their beliefs, values, and practices which is the core competence in any effective heart-to-heart communication.

It is also an effective and efficient tool and means to acquire interest, knowledge and skills on Japanese culture, arts, business management and technology which not only enhance personal and organizational learning and development but also facilitate and intensify meaningful interactions between the people of the two nations, be it inter-cultural exchange or in business. Thus, contributing not only to the peace and prosperity in the region but also the wealth of the nation.
