Per Lesson

Sign up for 8 or more lessons and receive a free “walk and learn” session! 

Your teacher will accompany you to a practical location (like a supermarket or restaurant) and practice using Japanese in real life with you. For example, you could place an order in a tempura restaurant while explaining that you dislike mushrooms. So, you ask to replace the mushrooms with something else!
