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.

Araki-sensei is great—infinite patience and encouragement, and engaging lessons!
Araki-sensei has been incredibly accommodating and flexible with our lesson structure. In my case, general conversation practice and weekly readings from my choice of manga.

We have discussed everything from Japanese virtual youtubers, to daikon prep, to the best ways of drying a cat after a bath. So far, we have read Naoki Urasawa’s Pluto and are working our way through Osamu Tezuka’s classic Hi no Tori. So fun!

Araki-sensei is great—infinite patience and encouragement, and engaging lessons! The sustained weekly practice has improved all aspects of my Japanese, as well as my confidence. It makes all the difference.

I look forward to my lesson every week. Highly recommended!

Nihongo-Pro is the most convenient way to learn Japanese.
I have been studying Japanese on Nihongo-Pro with Ogihara Sensei for more than three years. This is one of the best platforms because it is flexible and convenient. Before the 2020 pandemic, I had to travel frequently for work and using Nihongo-Pro ensures that I don’t miss a lesson. I could be in Hong Kong, Beijing, Taipei, Bangkok, Sydney or Vancouver and I can still learn on the go.

My lessons with Ogihara Sensei are always fun. The format is flexible—sometimes we follow a textbook or exercises that Sensei has prepared, sometimes we just talk about topics that are current, anything from films, books, TV shows, news and even songs! There were lessons where Sensei explained the lyrics of my favourite Japanese songs – the ones that are poetic and use a lot of Kanji. And there were lessons where we worked on writing my favourite recipes in Japanese ;-)

I even met up with Ogihara Sensei when I visited her city. She is like a good friend. I learned not only the Japanese language but most importantly the Japanese culture. I recommend Nihongo-Pro and Ogihara Sensei to anyone who wants to further their Japanese studies.
