Have you ever wanted to learn this wonderful and very humoristic language? Be it you're just travelling because someone told you that they're making the best cheese in the world (which is true!) or you're moving there because someone got you a job (lucky you!) or you just want to learn another language because you're curious. Let me warn you: It is not a modification of the German language, even though there's a few words that might look similar at first glance, but they're pronounced completely different! So, a small country with a huge culture! Ik hoop, tot ziens!

About Randy

I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, w

Randy is a first rate coach. He is knowledgeable, experienced, and with an easy going natural style. Was very adaptable to my level of experience and was patient - no question was too dumb. I highly recommend him without any reservation. I have already booked my next session.

Naoko-san is definitely a 5 star instructor for learning Japanese! I would highly recommend her classes, especially for beginners like myself. She breaks everything down in easy to understand ways & makes each lesson a lot of fun. I very much look forward to continue learning about Japanese language & culture with her!

Roman helped me understand the grammar better by using repetition and real life applications of when to say what. The material is given to you by Roman in great detail with his modules and it also helped me expand my vocabulary a substantial amount thanks to his methods. He helped me understand Russian better. Definitely recommend !!!

"When I was looking for a Japanese tutor, I wanted somebody who could help guide my studies and help me understand the subtle nuances that can't be gleaned from the dry instruction of a textbook. Clare really fit the bill, as she has deep knowledge of both Japanese and linguistics in general. We've been meeting for almost a year now, and my Japanese has improved tremendously (and at a great pace). She puts a lot of effort into the curriculum, and employs a variety of different teaching methods/exercises. I look forward to our every class."
