Easy-to-remember Japanese lessons

Most Japanese language schools today use the 'audio-lingual' method, which focuses on rote memorization. However this method is not very practical.
JAPANESE-LIVE.COM uses photos and illustrations to link words and images within an actual conversation during Japanese language study.
Linking words and real experience is the most similar to the way that children learn their native language.
We aim to create an environment in which you can learn natural-sounding Japanese.


Use tickets for Culture classes as well.

Language lesson tickets are interchangeable with Regular Culture Lesson tickets.
