Yuko-Sensei’s online classes are affordable and very easy way to learn 日本語 (Japanese). I started January 2019 with almost no knowledge of Japanese Language and I would type/write, “Watashi wa John desu.” And by April 2019, within just 4 months, with Yuko-Sensei’s help, I am now able to read and write in Hiragana, Katakana and even some Kanji! I can now construct better sentences like, 私はまた来年日本に行きます。Yuko-Sensei is also very interactive and always responsive whenever a student needs some help or questions. There is no better way to learn Japanese other than to learn it from a native Japanese speaker who’s always ready to help someone improve.

Smile Nihongo Academy is truly amazing!!! It has literally changed my life, and it all started for me on Yuko sensei's YouTube channel, where I learned Hiragana and Katakana. (Which by the way, she offers totally FREE !!!)

After I finished those lessons I moved onward to her Japanese 1 course and I couldn't have been happier. The amount of care and dedication that's put into these lessons is outstanding. Not only that but she also offered me additional help via email and the comment thread on Smile Nihongo Academy website. Thanks to her courses I'm actually understanding Japanese... that's something I never thought would happen!

If you have any desire to learn this beautiful language then I couldn't recommend a better place to start, than under her teaching.Thank you for everything Yuko-sensei, and I look forward to the next lesson.
