Enjoy private Japanese lessons designed just for you

We created a new kind of language school in London exclusively for adult learners like you. Your average language school prepares students for exams and certificates teaching a sterile language through irrelevant material and childish textbooks. That’s not what you get with us.

We know you wish to learn conversational Japanese to communicate with your loved ones, to experience a new kind of holiday, to open up new business opportunities and to discover Japan as a local. Our one-to-one Japanese language lessons are designed just for that. 

What’s more, you enjoy total flexibility learning at your home, office in London or online at the time and days of your choice. Pay per lesson or pay monthly without contracts. There are no upfront payments, no registration fees and no hidden costs.

Whether you are a beginner or can speak some Japanese already you will find yourself speaking Japanese from your first lesson with our structured and responsive method.

Learn to speak Japanese easily with a fast and adaptable method

Nobody wishes to go back to school.

Good news is that grammar jargon, word lists, boring exercises and childish textbooks are not the best way to learn Japanese or any language effectively.

We believe every language learner is unique. Our teaching method is designed to adapt to your individual learning style by adopting what helps you learn, investing in your strengths and finding ways around barriers. You’ll learn Japanese grammar and vocabulary in relevant context that’s tailored to your language goals and role-play real-life scenarios that will build your speaking confidence in the relaxed and exclusive environment of a one-to-one lesson.

There’s no need to purchase any materials since our professional tutors never follow a single textbook. Our personalised Japanese language courses use stimulating content from diverse and up-to-date resources while providing you with personally developed files for your needs. Your tutor’s files will present simplified grammar in a clear and straightforward way and customised dialogues will introduce you to Japanese vocabulary in its actual practice.

What’s more, learning will not be based on your private-time homework. You will learn and progress during the lesson through speaking and listening exercises that your committed tutor will tailor for your level, learning style and language ambitions.

With us you learn Japanese as you’ll use it real life.

3 Language learning myths we prove wrong

Is Japanese difficult?

Literary Japanese might be. With us you’ll learn the language of today's Japan and develop strong speaking and listening skills to communicate confidently with native speakers, not Kawabata.

Are adult learners slower?

Every language learner has a unique learning style which does grow more individual over time. A talented and dedicated tutor can discover it and unlock your unique way to learn fast and easily with our adaptable method.

Is strong memory important?

Memory is not the way you learn a language; interest and practice is. Our brain is programmed to retain what matters. An engaging and fun lesson practicing what you’ll actually say with your loved ones does matter.

Speak conversational Japanese with a dedicated tutor at home or online

Our hand-picked professional tutors are native Japanese speakers with a genuine passion to communicate the Japanese culture and language. As enthusiastic learners themselves, they are always eager to go the extra mile for you and create a sense of ease and fluency in every aspect of the language learning process.

Don’t you want a friendly tutor who is motivated to discover what matters to you and who’s trained to help you achieve your language aspirations? Our inspirational and open-minded tutors do not believe in a predesigned “correct” method for all learners but reinvent our method for each unique learner.
