Testimonials from our students

Ben-san The U.S
12 month with 150 lessons course

I only studied at home by myself before signing up for Nihongo Online School, so my knowledge has been pretty basic, theoretical and pretty random. I needed more structure, boundaries and deadlines through a teacher, and conversation practice to force me to say real sentences with proper grammar.
The good points are being able to practice my speaking with someone that can help me with my mistakes. I’ve enjoyed all my lessons so far with Natsumi-sensei. The lesson level has been appropriate, have been going well.

Matt-san U.K
6 month with 50 lessons course

I taught myself hiragana, katakana, and the most basic kanji. However, my speaking and listening ability is not something I feel that I can train adequately, without someone to have conversations with. My tutor is fantastic – she’s patient, able to answer any questions I have, and sets the perfect lessons for my ability – not too easy, and not too difficult.

Mishal-san UAE
6 month with 50 lessons course

I also wanted my knowledge to be around N3 before I make the commitment of acquiring my student visa.A lot of the university courses require at least JLPT N4 level – which is my current aim to reach by the end of my current batch of lessons.
I love this school and the very high quality of education they provide for their pupils. The staff are extremely polite and willingly to help when you’re in need. I would have made a mistake if i hadn’t joined this online japanese school.

3 reasons
improving your Japanese conversation level

Tailored plan and lessons to your own needs

Instead of a standardized, fixed curriculum, lessons are customized based on student’s needs and goals .
We ensure that students have as much time to speak as possible. You will solidify your grammatical knowledge with homework, and in lessons you will practice conversations based on scenarios that you will use frequently in your daily life. So, You can reach the conversation level required in the daily life in a short period of time.

System to visualize the growth of Japanese language level

We regularly measure the conversational ability of our students through the “10-step conversation level test” and the “JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) Online Mock Test. This allows to quantitatively check the effect of learning and visualize the degree of growth of the students’ Japanese conversation skills. Please feel free to contact us for a free Japanese level check and trial lesson.

Extensive follow-up by dedicated instructors

One instructor is in charge of each student from the beginning to the end of the course.
This system is different from another online school in which the instructor changes each time a lesson is taken.
Therefore, we will propose a lesson plan that will keep students motivated to learn and improve their conversation skills, taking into consideration the students’ homework situation, learning progress, level of proficiency, and personality.

Understanding your Japanese level and what you can do in your daily life will help you set and achieve your goals.

Based on the OPI level criteria, we will evaluate your conversational ability on a scale of 10.
