Learn Japanese Online With Skype Lessons

Japanese Skype Lessons

Japanese lessons on Skype make learning Japanese much more accessible than ever before. We all have busy schedules and it can be difficult to commit to being in a certain place at a certain time every week. With Japanese Skype lessons all you need is an internet enabled device (computer, laptop, tablet or even a smartphone) and you can learn Japanese wherever and whenever is convenient for you.

Flexible Times

When is learning Japanese convenient for you? Most Japanese schools have a set schedule which you need to follow. Furthermore, most Japanese tutors need to factor in travel time and may not be available when it best suits you. Our Japanese skype classes are flexible and can generally accommodate the times that best suit you rather than what best suits the school or teacher. Even if your most suitable times change each week it is not a problem as there is no set class time or location.

Flexible Location

As long as you have an internet connection you can be anywhere in the world and still have a lesson. That means you could even have a lesson during your trip to Japan. If you are travelling for work you could brush up on your culture skills just before a big meeting. If you are in Japan for travel you can practice asking for directions before heading out on a day trip.

Feeling comfortable when you learn Japanese is extremely important. It can be very daunting to practice your Japanese in front of other people. With Skype lessons, you can create your perfect learning environment. Feel free to sit on your couch, relax by the pool and wear whatever you like want – Izumi won’t mind! Melbourne students can try both in-person and skype lessons and see which you prefer. Or you could swap between the two depending on your schedule.

Flexible Lessons Tailored to You

Tailored to you, lessons are prepared with your desired learning outcomes in mind and using real world examples that are interesting and relevant to individual students. No two Japanese students are the same and as a result, no two lessons are the same. Izumi will take care to understand individual students and deliver the best possible lessons based on:

  • Learning Style (eg. Visual, Aural, Verbal, Physical etc.)
  • Applications (eg. School, University, Travel, Business etc.)
  • Strengths and weaknesses (eg. Reading, Writing, Listening etc.)
  • Interests (eg. Culture, Conversation, History etc.)
  • Outcomes (eg. Test preparation, Business meeting, speaking with family etc.)

Online Only Learning Materials

Conducting lessons over skype means that students will enjoy the benefits of digital teaching materials both during and after classes. No longer do you need a filing cabinet just to store all of the handouts and scribbled notes during class. Izumi will prepare all of the teaching materials you need for your upcoming lesson in advance and send them via email. These files are easy to store and organise and can be kept on your computer or mobile device. Typical digital learning materials include:

  • Audio recordings
  • Video recordings
  • Lesson information including:
    • Grammar
    • Sentence structure
    • Vocabulary
    • Practice exercises

You can even record your online lessons to replay and review later!

What to Expect

Lesson content is the same as in-person tutoring but will have more of a classroom setting with a whiteboard being used to help explain key information. Think of it like a virtual classroom.

Before your Skype class

Izumi will be in touch in advance and send any necessary materials for class so that you can prepare. You will need to download Skype for free and follow the steps to setup Skype for both video and audio.

During class

Depending upon your level, Izumi will use either familiar Japanese or English to explain the lesson contents. From there she will use practical examples of where lesson content will be useful to students. Finally, she will run through some exercises to practice and consolidate knowledge.

After class

Once the lesson is complete, Izumi will send any follow-up materials, plus everything you need to prepare for the next class. Remember, what you do outside of class is just as important as in class.
