 Japanese Group Lessons to Get You Started

Small numbers allow for ample speaking time for you and instructor time to help guide your lessons.

Opportunities to Make Friends

Our monthly group lessons are fixed and you can meet the same classmates every week - creating a consistent environment is very useful for maintaining motivation and improving your Japanese. Having a buddy of similar ability can be helpful for sharing tips and realizations with one another.

Magical Moments

One unique aspect of group lessons is that you get to watch other people who have a similar Japanese level make mistakes and receive corrections. You also get to hear questions about Japanese culture that you have not thought about and discover something new.

I enjoy studying at Japan Switch. After around a year of studying, I'm more confident with speaking Japanese, and I recommend them.

Melnikova M.


Overall, my experience with Japan Switch has been great, and I think my speaking skills have improved a lot in a short time. All the individual lesson teachers are excellent, they provided lots of speaking time for me and took my individual learning needs into account.

Karuro I.


I have had the best experience. I have learned how to make conversation with people. I can freely express my thoughts as when before it was hard for me. Thank you for teaching me Japanese!

George H.


My regular teacher was friendly and encouraging from the start and really helped me maintain my motivation to improve my Japanese skill. I especially appreciate her effort in always preparing for lessons and thinking about areas in which I can improve. 

Diane P.


It has been a good experience and I have come away feeling more confident with the sentence patterns/phrases learnt during the classes. This is definitely beneficial as a low level learner with other students who are at the same level.

The Most Affordable Japanese Group Lessons in Tokyo

Start your Japanese Journey with Japan Switch and let us be your guide! Whether you're starting from scratch or have been down the rabbit hole a few times, we're here to help navigate the exciting (and challenging) intricacies of learning Japanese together.   

Friendly Teachers & Great Textbooks

Our textbooks have been designed in-house for English speakers wanting to learn Japanese.
Say goodbye to generic Japanese language textbooks!

Focus on Speaking

The most common complaint I hear from most foreigners regarding their Japanese lessons is that there is too much of a focus on learning how to write Japanese at the expense of learning spoken Japanese. We focus mainly in speaking in our lessons because you can learn to improve your reading and writing through self-studying.

Focus on Beginner to Low Intermediate

We specialize in helping N5 to N3 Japanese learners make the switch to using Japanese in their daily life. Many of our teachers are super friendly and will make you comfortable first and get you to start speaking Japanese from day one. 


High Level and Intensive Course Students

Japan Switch offers great daytime online lessons for beginner to N3 students. Consider our premium partner school Coto Academy if you are looking for after hour or higher level courses.

  • Business Japanese Lessons
  • Evening and Weekend Lessons
