Frequently Asked Questions

What is the easiest way to learn Japanese in Hong Kong?

(1)A very orthodox method is repetition. If you can repeatedly speak/listen/write/read (both in boring way and also fun way) language becomes easier. Practice in various ways in various situations in order not to get bored. (2)Making association between new and old knowledge in your brain will make learning easier. If you can always make association between your own Language and/or English AND Japanese. (3) And also In Hong Kong, there are such abundant resources such as Japanese restaurants, Japanese festivals, Japanese people activities, Japanese food/snacks. So I would encourage you to go out and grab these opportunities to practice (read/listen/speak/write) in Japanese and with Japanese people.

Is Japanese easy to learn?

Bottom line: there is no languages easy to learn. :) As long as you are passionate and never give up learning, it will be fun and easy. Normally it takes 1-3 months to get used to the language if you are beginner. However sometimes, it also depends on the individual. One of my students of 60's took almost a year to get used to Japanese. And it is depending on your perception, compatibility, and also ability. It also depends on individual needs and goals. If you can learn by yourself, that's wonderful. However, To keep up learning languages, it is always helpful for most of the people to have someone to encourage you, motivate you, and give appropriate guidance/knowledge to you. That's where a coach will come in! Coach is like a life coach. Coach will give you guidance and assistance in need.
