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.
Message from a Nihongo-Pro Student
I feel grateful for my dedicated and knowledgable Japanese teacher.
I have been studying Japanese for more than 10 years now and I have been lucky enough to have Ms. Nakano Michiko as my teacher for most of that time. She is an experienced Japanese teacher who is always open-minded and thoughtful about how to improve her students' Japanese skills.

After I passed my JLPT N1 exam, I wanted to maintain my Japanese level, but my work took up a lot of my time, making it difficult for me to attend regular face-to-face lessons. That's when Nihongo-Pro came in to provide a solution. With their flexible online lessons and technical support, I was able to continue my studies even with a demanding work schedule.

Nakano-sensei made each lesson enjoyable and I learned so much from her, not just about the Japanese language but also about the culture of Japan. I feel grateful for having such a dedicated and knowledgeable teacher who is always willing to go the extra mile to help me succeed.

I highly recommend Nihongo-Pro and Nakano-sensei to anyone looking to improve their Japanese skills.

Message from a Nihongo-Pro Student
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.
