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.

Nihongo-Pro tailors my lessons for my specific needs.
Before I discovered Nihongo-Pro, I was faced with an apparently unsolvable dilemma: I had a background in modern Japanese, but I needed to learn how to read Japanese texts from the late 19th and early 20th centuries for a research project. I could not, however, find any resources for reading this kind of text.

Before I started, I had no idea how much the Japanese language had changed in the past century in terms of grammar and kanji use. Working at a small university without a developed Japanese program, I was not sure where to turn for help for acquiring such a specific set of Japanese skills.

Although my situation was unusual, Nihongo-Pro was more than happy to find a teacher who could help me. Nakano-sensei has been an amazing resource. She helped me to find Japanese books on how to read texts written in my period of study and formulate a study plan. She has time and again patiently helped me to tackle even the most difficult texts, and I am deeply grateful for the extensive preparation she has done before each online lesson.

Nihongo-Pro is more than a resource for passing the JLPT; it can flexibly accommodate a wide variety of individual Japanese language instruction needs for students anywhere in the world where there is an Internet connection.

Tanoshima sensei is that one Japanese teacher I had been looking for.
First of all, to Nihongo-Pro and Tanoshima sensei: THANK YOU for existing. Nihongo-pro has become for me one of the best ever language schools and being a polyglot, I attended many over the years. I am both a learner and a teacher of foreign languages in my daily life.

Tanoshima sensei is that one Japanese teacher I had been looking for. I started my search in my local town and finished on the other side of the ocean.

You might think that polyglots have it easy, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes, as it happened with me, having a large knowledge base requires a highly skilled teacher with very swift and quick train of thought being able to help you connect all the information you acquire intuitively and being able to help you build a solid foundation.

Tanoshima sensei conducts my Japanese lessons in such a masterful way that there is room for me as a student to use my language intuition, practice all the possible examples and variations of the words and sentences and step by step acquire more and more. I am very comfortable during these lessons, I am never rushed, and I have a lot of time practicing speaking, which is crucial for me in Japanese. Tanoshima sensei is a very responsive teacher—at my request she can help with finding a lot of unique information about Japan and even give an introduction to the modern Japanese poetry. I am very grateful that I can take lessons from Tanoshima sensei.

Nihongo-Pro. Wow. This is the first online learning platform with such a fantastic classroom! I have never come across a system so easy and convenient to use as the one provided by Nihongo-Pro. From the technical side, my teacher can choose a server that gives us the best possible connection speed, what gives the optimal connection speed no matter where you are and how unstable your connection is. From the practical side, the classroom platform is very easy to use and intuitive. This is the first time that I felt that distance learning can be comfortable and convenient.

Thank you once more to Tanoshima sensei and Nihongo-Pro: for existing, for finding the best of the best Japanese teachers and for staying up to date with modern technologies.
