Course FAQs

Who can take Private Online Lessons?

Anyone! Our Private Online Lessons are suitable for advanced students, as well as for beginners and people who have never studied Japanese before.

What language will be used during class?

The main language of teaching is Japanese, yet our teachers understand English. 

Meiji Academy teachers are very experienced using communicative methods of language teaching, and they are experts at using different means, such as role-plays and mimics to ensure that even complete beginners are able to learn Japanese smoothly.

How much will I learn?

There is no limit! Our teachers are used to working with all types of students, and will make sure you improve your conversational abilities, as well as your reading and other skills, so that you can learn to communicate effectively in Japanese.

We are always amazed by how fast students improve their language skills, and we will help you in any way possible so that you can reach your maximum potential.

Do I have to use Zoom?

Zoom our preferred platform for Online Lessons, as we take full advantage of the tools and features it has to offer.

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.


You might use various textbooks depending on the length of your stay and your previous knowledge. Visual media, manga, articles, and other supplemental material will be used in addition to textbooks to ensure you have a deeper understanding of the Japanese language in multiple contexts.
