How Will You Learn in the Next 10 Weeks?
Once you sign up and take an assessment test, we assign you to a class and send you an email with the time, date, and course materials to review.
  1. Before each class: You receive an email with materials for the upcoming class.
  2. You attend the class, learn directly from the teacher, and practice Japanese.
  3. After class: You receive a Post Lesson Score Sheet from your teacher with feedback on what to improve and how.
You Get Everything You Need to Learn Japanese... at Home.
You get the best of both worlds.
  1. A live group class where you learn with a teacher and can practice speaking Japanese. Where you can learn alongside other students, and have fun.
