I studied for 6 months starting in November 2022.
I was a complete beginner, but now I can converse in Japanese. I really enjoyed the lessons!
United Kingdom Weekdays 9pm -11pm Fifth a week
I really enjoyed the one-to-one tuition, which I found to be more focused, effective and fun than trying to learn on my own. It was invaluable to have a teacher, who was not only able to answer questions about grammar and vocabulary, but also why different words are used in different social settings, and to provide an insight into cultural context.
The flexibility afforded by having individual tuition at times that fitted around my schedule and my husband’s work trip was fantastic. Everyone was so kind and helpful that my initial nerves at going to ‘school’ again quickly evaporated and I loved every minute of it.
As a result, after only 5 days I felt more confident about handling day-to-day interactions and communicating more effectively with native Japanese speakers. I am inspired to keep on learning, and look forward to returning to the school for more tuition when we are next in Tokyo!
