When do classes start and end?

What is Meiji Academy’s teaching approach / curriculum?

Each and every lesson is tailored to your specific needs and interests!We believe it’s important to meet you where you are in your studies. That means a steady focus on achieving your personal language goals each and every lesson. Your time is valuable! You deserve to end every lesson feeling great about your progress and empowered to continue your journey.

If you’re just starting out, we guide you through all the fundamentals:

- Writing in hiragana, katakana, and even some beginner kanji characters
- Understanding sentence structure, basic grammar, and essential vocabulary
- Speaking and listening through real Japanese conversation

Want to level up your conversation skills? We can help with your pronunciation and overall flow, while covering a wide range of common conversation topics.

Seeking success on the JLPT exam? From N5 - N1, we can customize your experience to focus on the specific grammar and vocabulary of each level. Our teachers know the JLPT in-and-out and can coach you through practice tests to boost your confidence for the real deal.

How does Meiji Academy measure student progress?

For beginner and intermediate students, we focus on correcting your mistakes in real time so you can instantly understand difficult concepts and adapt accordingly. We believe this approach is much more effective than grading and reviewing written exams at these skills levels.

Of course, if your goal is to pass the JLPT, we offer in-depth review of practice exams.

How long does it take to reach JLPT N(5 - 1) through online lessons?

This depends largely on your current Japanese skill level and the amount of time and effort you’re willing to put in towards mastering each level. However, even if you don’t yet know hiragana and katakana, with the right amount of effort, we believe you can be ready to pass the N4 level within half a year.
