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.
Messaggio da studente Nihongo-Pro
With more than 60 Nihongo-Pro lessons under my belt, I cannot be happier with my decision...
My initial foray into the Japanese language may have taken place in the U.S., but everything about the instruction itself was Japanese to the core: Classes were rigorous, a group ethos was nurtured, and politeness and respect were hallmarks of every interaction. This approach was extremely effective at building cultural competency in a short period of time. But it could also be somewhat intimidating for those who struggle with language anxiety, like me.

After graduation, life happened. I continued to explore Japanese culture, but my familiarity with the language waned, as I had little opportunity to practice and even less desire to reclaim what I had lost.

A decade later, I felt the itch to study formally once again. I explored a number of in-person and online options, settling on Nihongo-Pro due to its scheduling flexibility, its sophisticated learning platform, and its extensive roster of highly qualified instructors.

Ohno-sensei has been a wonderful teacher, holding me to high standards while making the learning process enjoyable and informative. She’s a skilled and patient instructor who incorporates my learning goals and personal interests into each lesson. Ohno-sensei and Nihongo-Pro have increased my confidence level while equipping me to speak -- and even think -- in Japanese.

If you’re serious about enhancing your Japanese fluency, and want caring, individualized instruction along the way, there is no better investment.

I highly recommend trying a lesson, and you'll see the difference between Nihongo-Pro and the other Japanese resources...
After three years of self-directed study of Japanese, I decided I needed help.While I had learned kanji, vocabulary and some grammar, I knew that I had yet to achieve my goal of being able to speak Japanese casually. For help, I turned to Nihongo-Pro.

Over the past six months, my weekly lessons with Yamamoto Sensei have improved my understanding of Japanese grammar and challenged me in the best way to grow my understanding and fluency of Japanese. I am encouraged by what I have learned so far, and I am confident that my goals are within reach.

There are many resources available for free and at a cost to help you learn Japanese—I've tried many of them—but being able to ask Yamamoto Sensei specific questions as they come up in our classes, get real-time feedback, and have a learning strategy tailored to my level are the advantages of studying Japanese through Nihongo-Pro. I highly recommend trying a lesson, and you'll see the difference between Nihongo-Pro and the other Japanese resources out there. Best of luck in your Japanese studies!
