  • Nothing at all. This course is 100% newbie friendly

This course focuses on casual Japanese - meaning you will learn how to talk to your friends.

The course is absolutely beginner friendly and as such you are required to know nothing. Just some English will be enough.

All lessons are videos combined with slides - sort of a audio visual teaching method, you will be both hearing and seeing the words for easier remembering.

There is a total of 25 units, each about 15 minutes long. You should do at least 1 unit a day.

Included are also flashcards (PC / Mobile) to help you review vocab effectively and fast!

Great emphasis is put on reviewing and steady progress. Each unit starts and ends with a review to help the students remember recently learned vocab and grammar.

This course will be your gateway for tearing down the barriers, that polite Japanese puts up, in order to bring you closer to your Japanese friends and build some real long lasting relationships.

Also will help you understand spoken casual Japanese in both Anime and Japanese drama/movies better.

Who is the target audience?
  • anybody who wishes to learn about how to talk to Japanese friends
  • both beginners and slightly advanced students will benefit from this course
  • intermediate students won't probably find this course very useful
  • anybody who wishes to refresh their spoken casual Japanese

Hypnotist, Coach, Language Teacher

I'm a highly trained hypnotist and coach.

An expert at stop smoking for middle aged people who smoke two or more packs a day and tried to quit a couple times in the past and failed.

I like to call myself "hypnotist without borders" since my office is online and I accept people from any country, ethnicity, or culture.

It is my mission to be a force of good in this world using the skills which I've obtained through hundreds of hours of training with the top trainers of this age.

My online programs have reached thousands of people in 127 countries.

It would be my pleasure to share with you knowledge of the power of your mind so that you can easily realize you can accomplish anything.

Other than that I have great passion for languages - especially Japanese and Chinese.

I've been involved with Japanese since 2008 and I teach beginners on the internet with my Japanese friend.

I plan on releasing a Chinese course in the future as well.

I'm involved with other interesting stuff as well but I'm not ready to teach that just yet, but you stay tuned in because it's going to be worth the while :)
