    Our lessons allow you flexibility to learn at your best time and day. We can provide you with lessons that fit your schedule, for instance, after school, after other lessons, or after parents return home from work.

    The tutor will personalize a study plan for your child and choose a textbook that is at your child’s instructional level.

Q2.Why did you start taking online Japanese lessons? We would like to learn Japanese culture, moreover we aim to live by ourselves without the help of others.

Q4.What has changed since he started taking online lessons? He has changed a lot. He used to be shy and afraid to make mistakes. Once he started taking the lessons, he became more confident and be able to communicate with his friends at school. He is getting to enjoy learning kanji (Chinese characters) after he came to understand what school teachers explain. The more he learns and get confident, the more he gets motivated. I am very grateful.
