Learn Japenese online with our professional teacher
If you want to learn the Japanese language online, you've come to the right place! Our lessons can get you well on your way to learning how to speak, read, and write Nihongo. On this site you will find such things as the Japanese alphabet (including Hiragana and Katakana) as well as Kanji (Chinese characters), vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, and common words and phrases. What sets us apart from other Japanese language courses or tutorials is that we actually teach you how to conjugate verbs and how to build your own sentences - things critical to learning how to speak fluently! The Japanese language is actually very simple but so unlike English that many English speakers find it difficult to learn. The goal of this 10 lesson course is to help you study the basics of the language and to teach you how to learn Japanese in a way that is, hopefully, fast and easy to understand.

English and Japanese lesson, Support for English homework
I specialise in tutoring language classes. I have a Master's Degree in Teaching of English as a Second Language and currently pursuing my PhD in Science of Education. I have also lived in Japan for 6 years and I have learned Japanese for two years in the university. Therefore I can teach Japanese for daily conversations. Owing to the fact that I speak 7 languages, I believe I understand the joy and struggle of language learning, which makes a good partner to learn a new language.
