Yamafuji-Sensei rocks!
I started online Japanese classes at Nihongo-Pro in preparation to post-grad school in Japan. Nine years ago I had lived in Osaka for one year, but my Japanese was almost gone. I wanted to recover some of the lost Japanese before I entered university, so I wouldn't waste my time learning everything all over again from zero.

Since then I have been taking lessons with Yamafuji-Sensei. She is always very friendly, attentive and, most importantly, a great teacher. She keeps our lessons in Japanese, which I prefer—otherwise I might be tempted to speak in English instead of making the effort to speak in Japanese.

We talk about everything and she is always open to questions, be them about grammar, vocabulary or just where to find a traditional tempura restaurant in Tokyo. She let me select the grammar points I wanted to study/review and organized the course according to my preferences. The 50-minute class really flies by with Yamafuji-sensei; it never gets tedious.

The fact that I don't have to leave home to go to classes saves so much time, which I can reinvest back into studying Japanese.

I am not a hard tech user, but the Nihongo-Pro platform has been quite easy to use. I had a minor technical problem once (the video kept freezing), but all I had to do was logout and login again. My one suggestion would be to make a larger text-chat box, as it gets hard to read the kanjis. The payment system is also very simple.

I would also like to drop a word about Steve, the manager/technician/financial manager etc etc, who has been very helpful and efficient whenever I had a question.

Well, to summarize I am quite happy with my experience and Nihongo-Pro and have already recommended the course to other friends.

I have found inspiration to learn Japanese.

When I decided to try Japanese lessons, it was only because of my upcoming visit to Japan, and because I find language learning fun. I knew very little about Japan or Japanese culture.

With my Nihongo-Pro lessons, I was speaking a new language from the first minute—a real challenge for me as I am gifted more with writing. I was nervous about one-on-one lessons and always being the one to have to answer questions, but from the first moments with Sei-Sensei, I felt relaxed and not at all embarrassed. Somehow, I picked things up quickly even though Japanese is unlike any other language I’ve learnt!

After just the first online Japanese lesson, I had gotten beyond feeling I ought to learn Japanese, and had instead developed a real desire to learn the language. I also quickly developed a friendship with Sei-Sensei, a wonderful teacher and person who shares some things in common with me. Sei-Sensei has such a great sense of humour and excellent English! She understands all my jokes and we laugh a lot. I really look forward to my lessons; once I get more time, I am looking forward to increasing my study at Nihongo-Pro to two lessons a week.

Sei-Sensei says I learn fast and she often remarks on how I constantly ask for more homework! Not only does she teach me how to speak Japanese and construct Japanese sentences correctly, we exchange cultural information also. Outside of our online lessons we regularly exchange emails—I’m looking forward to the day when I can write a whole email in Japanese!

I have learnt 4 foreign languages at different periods of my life, always with great pleasure, but none have given me so much satisfaction as Japanese—I would never have imagined it! Thank you, Sei-Sensei and Nihongo-Pro!
