Learn Japanese from an experienced teacher, either on Video Calls or In-Person

=> Classes and Lessons

If you would like to learn how to communicate in Japanese by speaking, listening, reading and writing, it would be a good idea to learn from a live teacher. Thus, you would learn better and faster; an experienced teacher could give a structure to your learning and a steady rhythm to your progress.

I have been teaching people Japanese for over thirty years in the US, most of the time in New York City, and currently in Charleston, SC, on video calls and in person (if we live close by). They are in a small group of up to four and one-on-one settings. During the lessons, I use English in explaining for lower-level students and gradually increase Japanese.

I will walk you through all the necessary steps, and you will be surprised at what you can say in just a few weeks. Also you are welcome to ask as many questions as you want.

Many posts in this blog were originally written for our students or inspired by them in class. I enjoy writing for them about things we didn’t have time to discuss in our lessons.

But when I write, some topics are so interesting that I also wish to reach someone like you, to share them with. I mean those of you who have interest in Japan and the Japanese culture, whether or not you are learning Japanese.

By reading these posts, you can learn a lot about the people, the language and the culture of Japan. Since nowadays there are already many interesting news articles, websites and social media posts on Japan, I try not to tell you stories already covered by big news media or very popular bloggers living or traveling often in Japan. Unless there is a good reason.
