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.

In all my years of learning, Nihongo-Pro has been the most efficient method!
I’ve been studying Japanese for about 7 years, and I wish I had discovered Nihongo Pro way earlier!

I actually live in Tokyo so I have access to many Japanese schools and private teachers here, but I found them to be a waste of time because group lessons would go either too fast or too slow for me, and even the private teachers I had here just stick to their own methods and didn’t feel flexible enough, not to mention that private lessons in person are way more expensive and there’s also commuting time and expenses to add to the bill.

Nihongo-Pro answers my needs because I can advance at a challenging but still personalized pace, so it feels truly productive and I am learning so much!

What amazes me the most is that for every lesson I get a summary email with what we covered, so that reviewing is super easy, clean and organized.

I have the pleasure to study with Nagata-sensei, who has been the most amazing teacher I ever had! Thanks to her I am very close to getting my first job in a Japanese company. She has prepared me for Japanese job interviews and I already passed 2 out of the 3. I truly couldn’t have done it without her.

I am in good hands with Yamafuji-sensei and Nihongo-Pro...
A German and French teacher for 11 years, and also World Language Department Head of my high school, I can attest to Nihongo-Pro’s effective and efficient delivery of Japanese lessons in a nurturing, caring environment.

I have the great honor to work with Yamafuji-sensei, who makes use of all the teaching methodologies that I require my own teachers to employ in our school classrooms.

Coupled with her positive, encouraging and supportive demeanor, Yamafuji-sensei is an expert in delivering clear and effective instructions in my Japanese lessons. She targets, implements and assesses student achievement in a relaxed, entertaining environment, making learning seem “fun and easy”.

  • All of Yamafuji-sensei’s instruction is given in Japanese, which reinforces listening skills, enlarges vocabulary, and trains the student’s mind to think in Japanese. If I do not know a word, Yamafuji-sensei writes the word down in Japanese and English, and I understand, without interruption of the flow of the lesson. I use this same method in my classes.
  • Every grammar and vocabulary concept presented is accompanied by a visual image, the appropriate text and Yamafuji-sensei speaking it as well. Then, I write down the concepts and continue to listen and repeat, viewing the image and text again. I personally use this effective method too, so students are exposed to listening, speaking, reading and writing from the start.
  • Yamafuji-sensei uses verbal assessments to verify that I have mastered the material, and reviews the lesson’s material in an organized and structured way. The lesson goal and objectives are easily apparent.
  • Nihongo-Pro’s Support Room offers students a whiteboard, which is essential to lesson delivery, especially for visual and spatial learners like me. I personally cannot teach and learn without a whiteboard.
  • Finally, an aspect of utmost importance in evaluating my teachers is the classroom environment. Yamafuji-sensei has created a distinct positive instructional environment conducive to learning. She always is concerned with my well-being, and as evidenced by her lessons, has built a strong working relationship based on trust, support and encouragement.

In conclusion, I am extremely satisfied with my choice to study Japanese at Nihongo-Pro. With education as my own profession, I feel assured that I am in good hands with Yamafuji-sensei and Nihongo-Pro, as evidenced by my tremendously improved listening, reading, speaking and writing ability.
