Best Japanese Language School in Tokyo Shinjuku

Freedom to ask questions

Since you have the teacher all to yourself, you have the freedom to ask many questions as you want.

No need to worry about interrupting the flow of the lesson or asking for more time and support to handle challenging points.

Go at your own pace

Group lessons have to move a set pace to accommodate as many students as possible. Some group students race through the content quickly while other students prefer to take their time. Group lessons are designed to progress at a medium pace.

If you would like the option to race through the book or take your time, private lessons are the way to go. You set the pace.

Quality Textbooks

Our textbooks were developed by our partners over a period of more than 10 years and are used in their in house premium Japanese lessons. Thousands of foreigners have improved their Japanese thanks to these books!

The problem with Japanese textboooks

The most common complaint we 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. Unfortunately, the result is that even after studying for a year or more, these foreigners are still unable to communicate in Japanese despite being able to read and write well.

Why our textbooks are different

Our teaching style and textbooks will give you the opportunity to learn how to read Japanese, but the main focus from day one is to teach you practical Japanese that you can start using once you leave the classroom.
