Director: Kotaro Muramoto
Principal of Nihongo Online School
In September 2019, he founded "Nihongo Online School". Since then, has been teaching Japanese online lessons, with a total of over 1,000 students.
He has designed an individualized curriculum based on student’s needs and study goal. And is conscious of making the classes speech-centered in order to improve students’ speaking skills.
The school asks students to submit homework assignments worth 2 hours per lesson to improve faster. By supporting students with these features, students are able to efficiently improve Japanese language skills.

To get off to a good start in your life as a foreign student in Japan or at your new job, you need to know the most commonly used Japanese conversation phrases, culture, customs, and manners before you come to Japan. It may be difficult to learn these things comprehensively at Japanese language classes or schools in your home country, or by self-study.

In fact, many people are confused by the difficulties of Japanese conversation and cultural differences that they face when they first arrive in Japan. Therefore, if you can learn as much as possible about daily Japanese conversation skills, culture, and manners before coming to Japan, you will be able to live in Japan without trouble communicating in Japanese.

In this article, we will introduce three advantages of taking online Japanese lessons before coming to Japan for those who are considering or planning to study in Japan and for those who are planning to find a job in Japan, which will have a positive effect on your life in Japan and Japanese communication at your place of employment.

The following is a list of three advantages of taking online Japanese lessons before coming to Japan.

【1】You can take customized lessons that match your level and purposes.

In contrast to conventional face-to-face Japanese language lessons, which often follow a predetermined curriculum, online lessons tend to offer customized lessons that take into account the student’s Japanese language level and learning goals. This is a great way to learn in advance what kind of Japanese to use in what kind of situations after arriving in Japan, and it can also help to relieve some of the concerns that you may have.

【2】You can take high quality Japanese lessons regardless of time and location.

One of the advantages of online lessons is that you can take Japanese lessons from anywhere in the world as long as you have a stable Internet connection. Even if you are from a country or region where there are few educational institutions where you can learn Japanese, as long as you have a PC or smartphone, you have the freedom to choose from a large number of service providers offering online Japanese lessons in Japan according to your preferences. Especially as of 2023, the yen is trending toward a weaker yen, so lesson fees are also becoming more reasonable.

【3】You may receive a certificate for 150 hours of Japanese language study even if you take online lessons.

When applying to study at a Japanese language school in Japan, if you do not have a JLPT or other certification to prove your Japanese language ability, you may be asked to submit a certificate of 150 hours of Japanese language study when you apply. In the past, it was difficult to obtain such a certificate without actually studying Japanese at an educational institution in one’s home country, but now that online language education has become widespread, companies offering online Japanese language lessons for foreigners in Japan may issue a certificate for 150 hours of online lessons.

In Japan, more and more companies that offer online Japanese language lessons to foreigners are issuing certificates for students who have taken 150 hours of online lessons.

We also issue a certificate to those who have taken 150 hours of online lessons,

After working in sales and planning at an IT company for 3 years, he became an online Japanese instructor. For about 2 years, he has been teaching N2 and N1 level Chinese IT engineers and PMs who need to conduct corporate sales activities to improve their Japanese language skills for presentations and proposals. He has designed an individualized curriculum based on the Japanese required for the students’ work, and is conscious of making the classes speech-centered in order to train the students’ speaking skills. The school has received favorable feedback from foreign students involved in sales activities that their presentation skills have improved.

We try to make the lessons mainly focused on students’ speech, with students speaking the main part, the instructor giving feedback pointers, and the students correcting the mistakes.
