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. Lilly-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.

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!
