Frequently Asked Questions

How easy is it to learn Japanese in Tokyo?

As an online Japanese tutor with over 10 years of experience, I believe that living in a Japanese-speaking environment can certainly help students learn Japanese more easily. However, it's not the only way to achieve language proficiency. With the advancements in technology, it's now possible to learn Japanese online from anywhere in the world.

In fact, I have had the pleasure of helping many students improve their Japanese language skills through online lessons, even if they have never visited Japan. With personalized instruction, effective teaching methods, and a dedicated approach, it's possible to achieve fluency and understanding of the language.

That being said, for students who do have the opportunity to live in Japan, it can be a great advantage. Being immersed in the language and culture can accelerate the learning process and provide invaluable experiences. But ultimately, it's the effort and dedication of the student that determines their success in learning Japanese, whether they are in Japan or not.

Is Japanese easy to learn?

Absolutely, learning Japanese is not an easy task, but it's definitely achievable with the right resources and guidance. As an experienced Japanese tutor, I can attest to the fact that having a skilled tutor and effective study materials can make a significant difference in your progress.

One of my students is a great example of this. When he first started studying with me, he was a beginner level and struggled with basic Japanese grammar and vocabulary. However, through consistent and focused study with my guidance, he was able to reach an intermediate level within a year.

Not only did he improve his speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills, but he also passed the JLPT N5 with a 98% score. This is a testament to his hard work as well as the effectiveness of my teaching methods and study materials.

So, to answer your question, learning Japanese is not easy, but it's definitely possible with the right resources and support. If you are dedicated and willing to put in the effort, I can help you achieve your language goals and reach your full potential.
