I used JapaNeeds services twice so far – because I had to moved places – and I had a wonderful experience both times. Since I’m a high lever Japanese student focused on Business Japanese finding someone with the right skills to teach that is not easy but they were able to find me the perfect tutor. Here in Osaka I was very lucky to have the best tutor ever, she not only thought me what I wanted to learn but I also learned a lot about cultural facts and manners. Thank you for all the kindness and for all the help!

Chanced upon HH JapaNeeds while trying to find online classes to improved my Japanese. The response is fast and Honda San contacted me. First he conducted an interview to see my level of Japanese and to find out more on which area am I focusing on learning. He is a very helpful coordinator and always constantly checking if the requirement fit my needs.He got me a tutor which is able to accommodate my schedule. The tutor is very patient when i tried to used poor Japanese to communicate with her. She tried to understand and correct my Japanese. It been a few months taking the classes and I am happy. The tutor always makes an effort to plan a lesson plan before the class which I am really grateful for it.I would highly recommend them to embarks a language endeavours together!I would love to continue learning Japanese classes with them.Thank you Honda san and teams!

Title: A Fantastic Journey into Japanese: My Experience with Japanese e-LearningIntroduction:I recently had the opportunity to explore the world of Japanese e-Learning, and I must say, it has been an incredible experience. As someone who has always been fascinated by Japanese culture and language, this platform provided me with a comprehensive and enjoyable way to learn Japanese. In this review, I would like to share my thoughts and impressions about the Japanese e-Learning program.User-Friendly Interface:One of the first things that impressed me about the Japanese e-Learning platform was its user-friendly interface. Navigating through the different lessons and modules was intuitive and straightforward. The layout was clean and visually appealing, making it easy to stay engaged and focused on the content. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced learner, the platform caters to all levels of proficiency, ensuring a seamless learning experience.Comprehensive Curriculum:The Japanese e-Learning program boasts a comprehensive curriculum that covers all aspects of the Japanese language. From basic vocabulary and grammar to reading, writing, and conversation practice, the course content is well-structured and thoughtfully organized. Each lesson builds upon the previous one, gradually increasing the complexity and difficulty level. The inclusion of interactive exercises, quizzes, and assessments helped me consolidate my knowledge and track my progress effectively.Engaging Multimedia Resources:What truly sets Japanese e-Learning apart is its extensive use of engaging multimedia resources. The incorporation of audio clips, videos, and interactive exercises made the learning process immersive and enjoyable. I particularly appreciated the authentic Japanese materials, such as dialogues, songs, and cultural snippets, which provided a glimpse into real-life situations and enhanced my understanding of the language in context.Supportive Community:Another aspect that I found invaluable was the supportive community within the Japanese e-Learning platform. The inclusion of discussion forums, chat groups, and live sessions allowed me to connect with fellow learners and native speakers. This not only provided an opportunity to practice my speaking and writing skills but also fostered a sense of belonging and motivation. The instructors and moderators were responsive and helpful, offering guidance and feedback whenever needed.Flexibility and Accessibility:Japanese e-Learning recognizes the importance of flexibility and accessibility in today’s fast-paced world. The platform is accessible across various devices, including smartphones and tablets, enabling me to learn on the go. The self-paced nature of the course allowed me to tailor my learning schedule to fit my personal commitments. Whether you have a few minutes or several hours to spare, you can easily dive into the lessons and make progress at your own pace.Conclusion:In conclusion, my experience with Japanese e-Learning has been nothing short of exceptional. It provides a comprehensive curriculum, an engaging learning environment, and a supportive community that caters to learners of all levels. If you’re looking to embark on a journey to learn Japanese from the comfort of your own home, I highly recommend giving Japanese e-Learning a try. It’s an investment that will undoubtedly reward you with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Japanese language and culture.

I went for the course with a volunteer teacher and it worked great for me. Adaptability and flexibility with my schedule and working hours, took the time to design a teaching program that worked well with both my objectives and the time I could allow to studying. I felt it did wonders for my Japanese and it was also a fun way to study, highly recommend.

Very helpful if you want to learn Japanese. They have various options of tutoring, and you probably find one at your location (or online, if you want) and according to your needs. Coordination via e-mail or Whatsapp is swift and in excellent English, the tutors are all very helpful (I chose the partner level) and you get to choose which one(s) suit(s) you best. The online presence is also very useful. Highly recommended.

HH JapaNeeds is a really big help to those who wanted to learn Nihongo. All lessons are easy to understand and you will learn a lot. I am only having the free e-learning lessons because I don’t have quite the time for online tutoring but I think availing the online class would benefit the learner more.
