Let's learn Japanese and
connect with the world !!

一生懸命日本語を勉強していても、話す機会がないと、勉強したことが役に立たないし、楽しくないですよね。

でももし、一緒に勉強する人がいたら、色んな話題について話すことが出来たら、それに間違ったことを訂正してもらえたら?

Even if you study Japanese diligently but you don’t have the opportunity to speak it with someone, you may find that it is not fun.

What if you have someone to study with who will also correct your mistakes and expand your communication skills? I can help you.

Why don’t you come join me to achieve your goals?
(目標に向かって一緒に勉強しませんか?)

In my lessons, I focus on "communication" and "understanding" so that your ability to communicate fully in Japanese will improve with each lesson. 

We discuss various topics so that you can learn Japanese well enough for living in or traveling around Japan and  learn about Japanese culture or customs as well. 

While you are speaking, I provide real-time corrections so you can see your mistakes and learn proper Japanese.

The main lesson is speaking practice so you can also apply what you learn to other study activities or to what you have learned at school.

*私のレッスンでは「伝えること」「理解し合うこと」に重点を置いています。レッスンを受けるたびに、日本語だけで伝える能力がアップしていきます。

*様々なトピックについて話します。日本での生活や日本旅行などで困らない日本語を習得していきます。そのトピックの中から、日本の文化や習慣にもついても学びます。

*皆さんが話している時、間違っているところと、正しい文章の両方をノートにきます。自分がどこで間違っているのか気づくことができ、自然で正しい日本語を学ぶことが出来ます。

*会話が中心のレッスンです。例えば自分で学んだこと、学校で学んだことを、私のレッスンでアウトプットすることも出来ます。


楽しく会話するだけで、
自分の気持ちを日本語で伝えることが
できるようになるレッスンです!!

As you become more comfortable speaking with me, 
you will be able to say what you want to say!!

What's Valued Most?(大切にしていること)

Communication with others is very important.
Speaking clearly and properly builds good relationships and reveals what you truly want to say.

I believe that it’s very difficult to communicate with each other in a language that you don’t know, but the emphasis on being able to convey what one thinks and feels is important.

There may be few opportunities to speak Japanese in your country and keeping motivated may be difficult. I believe that learning Japanese is not just about studying but also about learning the culture and meeting the people.

My lessons will provide the correct path towards achieving that goal whether your are learning Japanese for fun or planning to become fluent.

About Me

I am a native Japanese speaker and tutor and have been teaching Japanese online to people around the world from beginners to advanced students.
I have given about 900 lessons so far. 

I’m often disappointed with myself because I’m still learning English even though I’ve been learning it for a long time. That's why I can totally understand how you feel.

I’m also very interested in your story, culture, etc.,  so please let me know about you! 

If you have something you want to say, please try to speak up because I want to hear it and I respect your opinion. It’s okay if you can’t tell me well. Let’s think about how to say it together. 

I encourage you to speak freely and I will ask you many questions so that you can improve your Japanese listening and speaking skills, and am 100% supportive and that I will do my best to help your study!!


Reviews From My Students(生徒様のお声)

【Haru Shinさん(Indonesia)】

I feel that Aiko sensei is a cheerful, friendly, lively and at the same time a serious person. In my routine life, every time I had a fun conversation with sensei, I feel refreshed.

The great thing about Aiko sensei's lessons is her excellent communication skills! Regardless of the language barrier, sensei will explain with easy-to-understand method, according to my speaking level. I think sensei's spirit and tempo adjustment were also good during the conversation. I am always grateful for her preparation on reading materials and the correction of my essays. Thank you so much!


【Changwoo Kimさん(Korea)】

I enjoy the lessons and their class structures are always good, so I find it very useful to study Japanese. The teacher always encourages and supports me. She teaches Japanese kindly so I can enjoy having the lessons.

The time schedule of the lessons is perfect, and the teacher takes a note on Google Document for me so I can review after the lesson.


【Serene Chenさん(Singapore)】

The lessons are always useful and enjoyable with Aiko san.  Every time, we discuss several kinds of topics. She's an open person and is patient to wait for me to construct my replies. She also regularly invites me to the online 日本語の会 she organises where learners can interact with native speakers (although it's hard for me to attend due to my schedule)! I had fun there. Thank you !
