Yes absolutely.

Here is a link to our small group fixed courses for Japanese.

Is Japanese hard to learn?

A broad question that has some many potential answers in truth!

For westerners Japanese can be considered hard for a number of reasons but the obvious are of course the written script which differ from any western alphabet along with the pronunciation and sounds.

However, a cool factor about Japanese is around 18% of its words are actually loanwords from other languages so you may well already know a fair number of words in Japanese you never realised.

If you read some Chinese also, this helps considerably with the Kanji alphabet as the meanings cross over with Chinese.

I don’t want to commit to 25 hours, can I book 10 hours?

Unfortunately our smallest package for individual classes is 25 hours but with good reason.

Too short, for example 10 hours, and you’ll not reach your potential. 

Creating the perfect program takes time and effort for our Japanese tutors.

Therefore, to see genuine results you’ll need to study for at least 25 hours.

Can I choose the content of my course?

Yes you can and this is the beauty of having your own Japanese tutor.

With group classes this is not possible because we of course follow a curriculum to suit all students.

You can choose the topic of the lesson and our teachers will prepare everything for you.

How long is a class?

In theory you can decide on this with your teacher.

Typically classes to last between 1.5 to 2 hours per class.

A number of our Japanese students also take intensive sessions anything between two and four hours, especially on weekends.

How many alphabets does Japanese have?

Japanese has 3 alphabets in total!

Sounds confusing but upon learning the differences it makes more sense.

Katakana and Hiragana both have physical alphabets to learn.

Kanji is essentially the adopted logographic Chinese characters that are used in the Japanese writing system. This means if you can read Chinese, Kanji will become much easier for you at the earlier stages!

Can I study Japanese online with my friend?

Yes and we offer a small discount if you do so!
