  • Hi, this course is for beginners, and nothing is required beforehand. Just watch 5 minutes a day for 10 days. Enjoy!

Welcome! If you're an absolute beginner who is ready to travel Japan, or want to head start on your Japanese skills before your business trip or an exchange student, you've come to the right place! After 10 days and homework, repeating after, you'll be able to read Hiragana, speak and understand basic survival Japanese, such as introducing yourself, making plans with people you’ve just met, ordering food, knowing how to pay in Japanese currency, going shopping and taking subway and taxi alone. 


My student describes this course very precisely!

“I highly enjoy Ms. Lee's classes. The greatest strength for me is her style in teaching which I greatly appreciate. She'll have the sentence written in both English and Korean, then will proceed to break down the Korean-English sentence structure in English and Hangul matching each meaning within the sentence. Basically, when using Hangul I can fully understand what she is exactly saying letter per letter. I absolutely love this style and I honestly learn better this way. Thank you so much Ms. Lee for both your Korean and Japanese classes! And to everyone else wanting to learn either, I highly recommend taking both classes.”
