School Introduction

Affordable, online, 1-on-1 Japanese lessons
with experienced Japanese teachers

As a way to support those who wish to learn Japanese but are unable to come to Japan—in general and also due to the coronavirus situation—or unable to access quality Japanese lessons in your home country, the Japan Study Abroad Network matches you with experienced, English-speaking Japanese teachers to provide affordable and high-quality 1-on-1 classes online to serve a variety of learning objectives. Because these classes are private, meaning it is just you and your teacher, you will have the opportunity to speak with your teacher about any changes you'd like to make about the class content as you go, so that you are always learning what you need, as your needs change. In this way, it's okay if you are not sure exactly what course to take. Before you decide to take our lessons and begin your program, you can have a free 20-minute trial session online with one of our Japanese teachers to confirm your objectives and discuss a plan that will work for you. If you are planning on coming to Japan for study or work, we can provide accommodation services, higher education counselling and career support.
