Check Out What Others Have to Say…

“I am enjoying the course very much.
Online learning allows students to control how much content they decide to look at. More confident students can choose to skip the parts that they are more familiar with, but students that are less confident still have access to lots of information.
I also like the feature that allows you to control the speed of the videos.”
- Sarah
"It is a very well made course.
Asuka’s voice is very clearly to hear, and it helps me to improve my Japanese pronunciation.
My struggle is the vocabulary but with the constant repetitions and revision I am starting to get it into my head."
- Iris

Module 1 : Hiragana

Module 1 is all about Hiragana letters.

You’ll learn ALL Hiragana letters – Seion letters, Dakuon and Handakuon letters, Yoon letters, Sokuon and Choon letters. 

But learning each letter is not enough! 

You need to read them Quickly, Easily and Confidently, right?

So I provide you plenty of Hiragana exercises to make sure you can read Hiragana words correctly and recognize each letter and word sounds as quickly as you can.

Module 2: Katakana

Module 2 is all about, obviously, Katakana!

In this module, you’ll learn ALL Katakana letters – Seion letters, Dakuon and Handakuon letters, Yoon letters, Sokuon letters, Choon letters, AND Katakana ONLY sounds.

Many learners find it more difficult to memorize Katakana than Hiragana, so I provide many Katakana exercises for you!

After you finish this module, you are confident to read Katakana letters and words correctly!

Module 3 : Greetings/Introducing Yourself

In this module, you learn how to start a conversation

If you want to talk with any Japanese people, greetings and self-introduction are essential.

You’ll learn and practice in this module so that you are ready to start chatting!

(Yes, you can practice how to chat at a virtual conversation lesson!)

Module 4: This and That (これ、それ、あれ)

In this module, we’ll learn “this” and “that” in Japanese.

Japanese “this” and “that” are different from English equivalents. We have two kinds of “that.”

But don’t worry. I visualize the concept so that you can understand it easily.

You’ll also learn how to add extra information to a noun, how to indicate an owner of an item and more.

After you finish this module, you can skilfully use “これ・それ・あれ” and talk about everyday items around you confidently.

Module 5 : Here, There, Over There (ここ、そこ、あそこ)

In this module, we’ll learn “here,” “there” and “over there” in Japanese.

Japanese “here, there and over there” are similar to “this and that,” that we learned in Module 4 so that we call these words as “こそあど (kosoado).”

You’ll learn these words with visuals so that you can understand them easily.

You also learn how to use the words “どこ(where)” is used.

Actually, どこis very confusing but don’t worry. When you finish this module, you can use “どこ” excellently!

Countdown Party 2018 is a fun learning event which starts from 22nd to 31st December.

Konnichiwa! I'm Asuka Sensei.

Asuka sensei

I’m teaching Japanese in various places, including the University of Southampton, UK.

I love my classes. I enjoy interacting with my students, answering their questions, and communicating with you.

But unfortunately, live sessions are not perfect.

My students are all enthusiastic learners but some of them found it difficult to come to the class regularly due to work, or other commitment. Sometimes life is just unpredictable, and their schedule changed unexpectedly.
There are lots of reasons which make them unable to come to the class.

Others of them found that they need more time to digest the contents they’ve learned.
They want to dedicate some time to practice more until they can use them confidently.

And also, I had some students who moved somewhere in the world and found there were no Japanese classes in their new place.
Even though they wanted to continue their Japanese learning, it was just impossible.

In any case above, live sessions were not so helpful.
As a teacher, I wanted to save my students from these situations.

That’s why I created my first online courses.
And those who took my online courses LOVE them.

My online students are happy because FINALLY they can:

✅ Learn Japanese anytime anywhere they like

✅ Study Japanese efficiently and systematically

✅ Watch video tutorials as many times as they want and do exercises to check their understanding

✅ Get the whole picture of grammar with lots of example sentences

✅ Practice advanced skills like listening, speaking, writing and reading, which are difficult to learn by themselves

And now I opened my courses to the public to support other Japanese learners who eager to learn this language and to use it properly.

If you are interested in it, Come and join us!

This course is self-paced and instant access.
You can start this course today, or later. It’s not going anywhere, and you get Unlimited Access. 
(With This Special Bonus, of course!)
