    3 years experience as a conversation teacher. I don't know what to do, but I took the "Three Years of Natural and Free Japanese" lesson.
    Let's imagine a lesson where you can practice Japanese together so you can improve your Japanese and learn Japanese.
    In my classes, for example, I can talk to friends in a relaxed atmosphere and “Keigo”, for example, with Kaisha.

    Why choose Hiromi S.
    "It is Christopher's first Japanese lesson and he enjoyed every moment with Hiromi. She is patience and such a lovely teacher towards a 9 years old new student. Looking forward for the next class. "

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

🧠 Is Japanese a hard language to study?

Japanese belongs to group 5 on a 1-5 Foreign Service Institute scale of language complexity, with 5 being the hardest. This means it’s quite a difficult language to master, largely because of the writing system. But you can start speaking basic Japanese rather fast, thanks to its simplified phonetic system. So why wait? Start improving with a Japanese native speaker on Preply on Preply right now!
 

⏰ How many hours of online Japanese lessons should I take?

If your goal is becoming fluent in Japanese, prepare for 2,200 hours, which is 88 weeks of regular practice. However, if you just want to be able to have basic conversations, it may only take one year of focused daily study, preferably with a certified Japanese teacher. A variety of professional Japanese tutors are available on Preply for reasonable prices, so choose one now and start learning!
 

🆎 How many Japanese words should I know?

To feel comfortable as a tourist, you need to know around 500 words, while reaching basic fluency requires knowing 3,000–5,000 words. To read a Japanese newspaper and be proficient, you would need to know around 10,000 words or 2,000 Kanji, which are Chinese characters used in Japanese.
 

✍ How can I practice Japanese?

The main challenge is motivation and consistency in finding the time to converse with a Japanese teacher and native speakers, which is key to developing a diverse vocabulary that has a greater variety of idioms and phrases. No Japanese speaking environments where you live? Find affordable online Japanese tutors on Preply.
 

🕵 Where do I find a Japanese tutor online, and what do they charge?

Online platforms like Preply, which boasts 1001 Japanese tutors, are great places to start. One-on-one online Japanese tutoring is more affordable when compared to other options, with $19 being the average price for a one-hour Japanese lesson on Preply. Prices even go as low as $6.
 

🎓 What are the most popular Japanese language tests?

The Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) is necessary for immigrants. However, to simply see your own progress after working regularly with a Preply Japanese teacher, take the Kanji kentei - Japanese Kanji Aptitude Test.
