Why Learn Japanese Online?

Every learner has his/her own comfortable pace to digest new information. With online courses, you have the freedom to learn in your spare time at your own pace.

However, it's tough to stay motivated to learn when no-one is there to guide you through or answer your questions, isn't it?

That's why an online course taught by a real teacher is a perfect choice. It allows you the flexibility to go at your own pace and have your questions answered.

Courses at Smile Nihongo Academy are yours forever once enrolled. They are quite affordable too. You don't need to spend a few hundred dollars for a language school or paying a private tutor $50/h

I have really enjoyed my Japanese lessons with Yuko sensei. I've always wanted to learn Japanese, but I am a busy stay-at-home mom, and taking a language class has always been challenging. Her course has changed that! The program is self-guided and accessible 24/7, so I am able to go at my own pace and repeat lessons as needed to ensure my comprehension! Plus, Yuko-sensei's lessons are engaging and fun! The cultural lessons provided enhance the learning experience, and you can feel the warmth and love that Yuko-sensei has for her home country. Smile Nihongo Academy is the perfect solution to learning Japanese for busy people!
