To anyone that is even remotely interested in learning Japanese I highly recommend Yuko-Sensei and Smile Nihongo for the best in Japanese language instruction. You will find the course enjoyable and a teacher that is very passionate and caring! I have studied with several courses on CD’s and books but this is by far the best way to learn. Yuko-Sensei is very willing to work with students one on one to answer questions and at times provide insight into Japanese lifestyle that can only come from someone native to the country. I am not only married to a Japanese lady but live in Kobe Japan on a limited basis and Yuko-Sensei has helped me tremendously in my quest to learn the language!

Your Instructor

Yuko Sensei
Yuko Sensei

Yuko-sensei is a professional Japanese instructor with an M.A. in Japanese Pedagogy (Teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language). She has over 20 years of teaching experience at colleges in the USA.

Her students say her teaching is fun, engaging, and very easy to follow. She is skilled at presenting the complicated parts of the Japanese language in a simple manner. Her students describe her as a kind, patient, and supportive teacher who genuinely cares about the student's success.

The course provides pronunciation exercises too!

Improve your pronunciation and fluency with the technique called "shadowing." The course guides you through how to use "shadowing" to copy a native speaker's pronunciation. It comes with MP3 audio files that you can download so that you can practice shadowing on the go!

I started studying Japanese on my own to later enroll in classes at a school. All was well in the beginning. However, as the courses went on, it started to get confusing. I searched for online sites where they could explain things in a simpler manner and I suddenly stumbled upon Yuko-sensei's site. I can't say enough how easy it is now to understand those things I was so confused about. I now understand things I couldn't before in my classes at the school! I highly, highly recommend Yuko-sensei's Japanese courses. They are worth it! Not only are they easy to understand, Sensei herself is very compassionate, patient, and understanding. She will respond to you almost immediately. She's the best Sensei so far I've come across who truly cares about her online students and seeks ways to make the language learning easy for us newbies. :)

Printable PDF materials are included! (35 pages)


I have really enjoyed my Japanese lessons with Smile Nihongo Academy. I've always wanted to learn Japanese, but taking a language class has always been challenging with my schedule. Smile Nihongo has changed that. I am a busy stay-at-home mom and I like that the program is self-guided and accessible 24/7. I am able to go at my own pace and repeat lessons as needed to ensure my comprehension before moving to another course. 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!
