Private Lessons

If you are interested in learning Japanese, our office near Roppongi is an ideal location. All our private lessons are customized with the goals and abilities of our students in mind and cover all levels from beginner to advanced. Our fully-qualified and experienced teachers understand very well that each student learns at a different pace and in different ways. Private lessons allow you to take advantage of maximum one-to-one contact to keep you progressing fast and gain a comprehensive understanding of Japanese. Each student is assessed for their personal learning needs and our lessons are totally flexible in structure and tailor-made for each student, ensuring that the student learns as efficiently and enjoyably as possible. Through teacher-student “matching” your instructor will get to know you and keep you on the road to success. Your teacher will remain with you throughout your studies so continuity is guaranteed.
