“My teacher is wonderful!
She's very friendly and explains things very well in class.”
I have been studying at BJLC for 1 year. I chose BJLC because I thought the levels of classes offered were good, I liked the idea of smaller, more personalized classes and I liked that the teachers are Japanese people. I think the one-on-one type classes are great for conversation. It's such a friendly class.
I have achieved my goals so far! I can definitely understand and speak more Japanese than before. I am learning kanji, and I have taken a JLPT test (I haven't got my results yet!).
My teacher is wonderful! She's very friendly and explains things very well in class.
“Hard to put words on how good this school is. 5/5 star rating!”

“I like the casual nature of learning on a weekend in small groups”
I have gained confidence in speaking Japanese whilst traveling in Japan on holiday, able to read basic menu items and ask for help from locals. The teachers are very good at ensuring we understand the topics. I like the casual nature of learning on a weekend in small groups.

"I would recommend studying Japanese with BJLC to anyone who wants to learn or practice Japanese"
I have gained confidence in speaking and I’ve learned many new words, kanji and sentence structures. Maki-sensei and other teachers I’ve had as well have all been very supportive and kind. Maki-sensei is always very patient, too! I would recommend studying Japanese with BJLC to anyone who wants to learn or practice Japanese. BJLC classes are great for any Japanese ability (beginner to more advanced) and also incorporates culture and a great environment to learn.

"Teachers are fantastic and the other students are great to study with."
Taking Japanese lessons has significantly increased my confidence in speaking Japanese. My teachers are very supportive, patient and take time to explain grammar points and their usage in real world spoken Japanese not converted in textbooks. Teachers are fantastic and the other students are great to study with. Apart from learning the language, we would also cover Japanese customs and culture. I’ve really enjoyed learning about these listening to the teachers and fellow students sharing their experiences.
“I am enjoying the class very much. The teacher is so patient with us and it is nice to have someone to practice Japanese with.”

"I’m quite lucky that I
can have that wonderful teacher"
I haven’t known much about Japanese before including Hiragana and Katakana. After I have studied with BJLC, I can speak in Japanese with a simple sentence structure, introduce myself in Japanese and read out the Hiragana and Katakana when I see them on the product’s package or shop’s sign. As a beginner, I spent not much time to study in Japanese, however, I really learned much from BJLC. To be honest, my teacher helps a lot during my study. She is very patient, the pronunciation is perfect and clear and is able to translate the complicated meaning to English. She is experienced in teaching, she knows the student needs and the common mistake. She is not only teaching with the textbook but also sharing the Japanese culture with us. I’m quite lucky that I can have that wonderful teacher to teach me Japanese.
I highly recommend to study Japanese with BJLC; small study group, a friendly and experience Japanese teachers, flexible time and class.
“This is a great school for students and people who are interested
in Japanese culture.”
Wes [Absolute Beginner Class]
I have learned many new kanji, grammar, and vocabulary. Maki-sensei is always well prepared and happy to help. She is also very patient when we don’t understand! I would definitely recommend BJLC to friends. I love the small classes so that I get to practice the Japanese language during class. As a Japanese teacher, I often have many questions which are answered
