If you like your trial lesson, buy lesson tickets to continue learning Japanese online.
Each ticket, good for one 50-minute private lesson with the same teacher who taught your trial lesson, costs US $28 to $35, depending on how many tickets you buy.
Message from a Nihongo-Pro Student
Arai-sensei and Nihongo-Pro have been integral to my Japanese studies.
My Japanese studies began by teaching myself Hiragana and Katakana. My vocabulary was limited and learning on my own proved to be difficult. In March 2020 I began studying Japanese with Arai-sensei through Nihongo-Pro. I have been taking two classes a week for around 8 months now with Arai-sensei and have been enjoying my Japanese classes quite a bit. Arai-sensei always has assigned homework which often includes writing a journal on a topic of my choice. These are always corrected promptly and e-mailed back to me.

I find writing the journal very useful as it allows me to express my experiences in Japanese and it makes it easy to identify mistakes I make while writing. The pace of the classes is appropriate and if I need more time on a certain Japanese grammar point Arai-sensei will make time for it. Being a foreign tourist, I also appreciate the occasional explanation of Japanese culture in conjunction with lessons.

Since I work evenings it is important to me to have a consistent schedule to learn and Nihongo-Pro allows me to do this while still maintaining flexibility when I occasionally need to make a change to the schedule. The Nihongo-Pro classroom is well designed and allows for a customized lesson. While I still have a long way to go with my Japanese studies, I look forward to continuing my learning with Arai-sensei through Nihongo-Pro.

Message from a Nihongo-Pro Student
Nihongo-pro has been the most flexible and cost-effective means for me to study Japanese.
I have been studying with Nakamura-sensei for nearly two years and have greatly enjoyed my lessons with her. Nakamura-sensei is very personable and is a lot of fun to work with.

Originally, I wanted to study Japanese in a university environment, but because I work full-time and have a growing family, the university route was not feasible. Nihongo-Pro allows me to study at my own pace and take lessons when it is convenient for me.

Nihongo-Pro has also been very flexible with teaching materials, allowing me to choose which textbooks and methods I would like to work with. This has allowed me to move towards my Japanese learning goals in the best way possible for me. This is a great contrast to other online lesson providers that seem to treat both their teachers and their students as commodities to be exploited.

Nihongo-Pro has been helpful to me on various occasions, and I greatly appreciate this.
