How to Enroll in Private Lessons
Complete the New Student Enrollment Form. We will then send you a link to a trial-lesson questionnaire.
After you fill out the questionnaire, we will match you with a Nihongo-Pro teacher and set up a trial lesson at no charge.
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.

I really value the flexibility to choose what and how I want to learn.
I attended a Japanese class one night a week (in Australia) for four years. Although it was a good way to start, it did not meet my needs after a while. We were racing through the grammar with no time to consolidate what we were learning. Sometimes the content of the textbook was irrelevant to me, because of my age (in my 60s) and interests. Taking private lessons at Nihongo-pro with Nakano-sensei allows me to revise the grammar I’ve already been exposed to and use it in ways that are meaningful to me.

I am mainly focused on writing at the moment. I write about my life and thoughts so the content is always relevant to what I am likely to want to talk about with my Japanese friends. I really value the flexibility to choose what and how I want to learn – not what a textbook offers – that is available at Nihongo-pro. At the same time I am exposed to new items through the writing practice book that Nakano-sensei recommended. Many of these items turn out to be quite simple common expressions which my previous textbook did not include. So I feel I have the best of everything now.

I appreciate the ease of reserving class times (as well as cancelling when necessary). And I value the use of the whiteboard during class. It’s very clear and easy to see where the errors in my writing and to clarify any confusions I have. The electronic access to teacher resources that Sensei has allows her to explain grammar points or put up definitions of new words. This makes the lesson run smoothly and efficiently. Being sent all the files afterwards means I can check the corrections to my errors, practice any new words, and make my writing into a reader for my own later use.

In the 6 months I have been having lessons with Nakano-sensei, my Japanese writing skills have definitely improved. I’m looking forward to continuing!

Mukai Sensei is extremely engaging.
I am a full-time employee so taking classroom-based classes was not an option for me. I spent a long time trying to find the right online school to handle my schedule and then I found Nihongo-Pro. From the first email I was hooked. The staff at Nihongo-Pro is extremely efficient and polite. I had the chance to meet a couple teachers and find one who fit what I was looking for as a student.

Mukai Sensei is extremely engaging. He makes learning Japanese enjoyable and not stressful, which is really important for new students. He tailored the lessons to me and my goals and I have seen a constant improvement in my skills. Thanks to Mukai Sensei I was able to pass my JLPT goal and now I am looking forward to gaining his help as I continue to improve!

Thank you, Nihongo-Pro!
