Japanese is EASY! Please do not think that Japanese is difficult. 

Learning Japanese and becoming a confident communicator in Japanese will open up so many new opportunities. However, it seems as many people are afraid to learn Japanese. 

The target of this course is for the students to learn 200 - 300 phrases and vocabulary terms which are commonly used in ordinary life in a period of 14 weeks (less than 100 days). 

You might be wondering "Is it possible?"----- for now.

My answer is that it is absolutely possible. All you will need is the Modern Scientific Memorization Method for speaking Japanese. I promise that you will be able to speak Japanese with this memorization approach.

This memorization method is simple, and easy to apply your study. Moreover, you do not prepare additional  tools or materials for following the method. You will watch friendly videos from online tutor Steve, helping you eliminate fear and embarrassment.

My course is designed to effectively teach you each lesson with the following methods and examples;

1) Basic conversational phrases 

2) To build vocabulary

3) To learn more words by supplemental material, and a quiz is available in each lesson. 

4) Examples of actual practical uses of the phrases learned in the previous lessons 

This course very much focuses on phrases and vocabularies that appear in everyday life in Japan.

After this course, you will be able to speak Japanese with more ease and feel more comfortable with the language! You will understand the Japanese culture even more!

Learning Japanese is たのしい!

I will look forward to seeing you in the course.
