  • JLPT N3 Online Prep Lecture

    The lecture will prepare you with the necessary grammar and vocabulary required to pass the JLPT N3 exam. It is an affordable and convenient option for those who are looking for a high-quality seminar-style classroom taught by a professional native.

    JLPT N3 Online Prep Lecture is taught by Sugawara-sensei in a seminar-style format where students actively listen and ask questions through the chatbox. Students will complete their homework assignments to test their knowledge attained from the lectures. Recordings are shared by lecturers and accessible after class.

    Teacher's Profile

    Naoto Sugawara majored in Educational Psychology at university and took an MBA at Claremont University in the United States.

    According to him, "Knowing other languages allows you to talk and listen to more people, and you will be able to access more information. However, I know that is not your ultimate goal. Your goal might be to find a better job, watch Japanese anime, get along with your Japanese partner or enter college." This is why Sugawara-sensei puts great importance in your own goal. Without it, you'll lose the motivation to study Japanese.

  • What’s different between regular and special JLPT prep course?

    Our special JLPT prep course lasts for three months — typically from September to December — and covers all test elements (reading, grammar, kanji and vocabulary) instead of just grammar and reading.

    The key differences are:
    • Our special JLPT prep course runs for three months, unlike our regular prep courses which can be held throughout the year.
    • Students need to purchase the whole course and not just a part-time package. Still, they can join the special JLPT prep course even when it has started.
    • Regular JLPT prep course covers grammar and reading only, while our special JLPT prep course covers all the skills: reading, grammar, kanji and vocabulary.
  • What textbooks and Japanese course material do you use?

    We use a mix of our in-house materials, Coto's self-published Nihongo Fun and Easy and other trusted textbooks and workbooks like Genki
  • Do I need specific equipment to take online courses?

    Online courses are mostly conducted via Zoom, so you should have an up-to-date web browser such as: Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer. We strongly encourage you to have access to a desktop or laptop computer and a reliable internet connection for certain Japanese lesson components.
  • How many students can I expect in group Japanese lessons?

    To learn Japanese in the most effective way, we limit a Japanese lesson to 8 students. This allows you to participate in more conversations and receive ample support from our professional language teachers. 
  • How do I select online lessons?

    You can visit the course catalog to browse our part-time and lite intensive Japanese classes. In addition to searching by course duration and availability, you can also search by subject to ensure you find a course that reflects your interests.    Alternatively, you can fill out our contact form for a free course consultation, or reach out to us at [email protected] with some information on your background and what you hope to learn. We can then provide some personalized course advisement.
