I've studied Japanese for the past 25 years, including living in Japan for six of those years.
I've studied at five different Japanese language schools, but my online private lessons with
Nagatomi-sensei have been the best experience out of them all.
First, Nagatomi-sensei is very professional. She is a full-time Japanese language instructor in Japan.
During our first class, Nagatomi-sensei asked me how I liked to learn. What methods in the past worked well for me?
I like learning Japanese through current events, as well as reading about historically significant Japanese from the past.
She recommended two text books that perfectly met this goal.
Each week, we cover new vocabulary and grammar by reading topical news stories as well as
short biographies of famous Japanese.
Nihongo-Pro is also super convenient. I travel a lot for my work.
But I can always log on to Nihongo Pro and get my lesson no matter where I am in the world.
This solution works for me. It will work for you, too!
