Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

📖 Where can I learn Japanese?

How to learn Japanese? You can learn Japanese in several ways: private tuition at home, online tuition in Japanese, conversation classes in Japanese... You can choose between Japanese classes for children, Japanese classes for adults and even by level (Japanese classes for beginners or for advanced levels). 

🧑‍🎓 Is having a Japanese tutor useful? 

Why is Japanese becoming more and more popular? Why should I learn Japanese? Besides the fact that Japan is one of the most advanced countries in terms of technology, what attracts people most is its culture: Japanese cuisine, history, architecture, anime and manga, which are so popular around the world. So, is it useful? Yes, both for work and personal reasons. 

 🧑‍💼 How do I find Japanese language lessons for beginners? 

Many Japanese tutors specialise in one level: either by age (children to adults) or by level (beginners to advanced). Most private tuition for beginners starts with the basics: learning the Japanese alphabets, hiragana and katakana, or even the most common kanji. Later on, we work on Japanese vocabulary for beginners: the family, numbers, months or days of the week, and how to introduce yourself in Japanese

🧑‍💻  How to find online Japanese classes? 

You have the option of taking your Japanese classes online. This modality is much more flexible, and you can enjoy all the tools of online tuition: shared agenda, instant messaging... And even much more practical classes. Although they usually last between 1 and 1.5 hours, they feel much more personalised, and they practice speaking Japanese much more.

💷 How much does a Japanese language lesson cost? 

On average Japanese classes cost £18 an hour. It is not a common language, so finding tutors is more difficult. However, most tutors are native speakers, and you can learn the language directly from them. Other factors that affect the price are the type, level and quality of the tutors themselves.

How to learn Japanese 

Japanese is an increasingly popular language in Western society. Its cuisine and culture have made a place for themselves in this globalised world, and we can't complain: who doesn't like good sushi or has enjoyed watching Pokémon or Doraemon? That's why more and more people are willing to start Japanese classes

How to study Japanese from scratch

The first step is to get to know its writing and speech system. In the case of Japanese, they are the hiragana and katakana syllabary. But here are a few more tips to help you learn Japanese quickly

  • Know the sentence structure. In order to learn Japanese, it is very important for you to know that the order of the sentence changes. It does not follow an order of subject, verb and predicate. Rather, it is a completely different structure: they put the verb at the end of the sentence. 
  • Familiarise yourself with the language. Japan has a huge animation and film industry, so why not take the opportunity to watch some Japanese anime or drama to get used to the language? Japanese is not particularly difficult to pronounce, but it will help you to understand and use certain Japanese expressions, such as "Ohayo" (Good morning). 
  • Japanese private tuition. If you want to learn Japanese, the fastest and most effective way to do it is through private tuition. Japanese tutors are the ones who will adapt to you, to your interests and teach you at your own pace. 
  • Study Japanese in Japanese. Another way to learn Japanese superfast is to study or work in Japan for a while. There is no more immersive experience than that and the learning will be fast, continuous, and you will come out with a very high level. 

How to find a Japanese tutor 

A private Japanese tutor will always respond to your needs. Do you have a tight schedule? If you want to give priority to conversation over grammar, you can do that too. In general, private tuition is more practical than tuition in a tuition centre and much more emphasis is placed on conversation. Would you like to find private Japanese lessons? 

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Why do you want to learn Japanese? Often, the Japanese private tuition tutors prepare the lessons according to your motivation: do you want to learn Japanese for work? Why do you like it? It is also important that you know what level of Japanese you want to learn: if you are looking for beginners' Japanese lessons, you will need an A1 tutor, if you have some knowledge or have learnt Japanese before, you will be looking for more advanced levels. 
  2. Did you know that you have the choice between private tuition at home, learning Japanese online or learning Japanese in person, wherever you want? The type of private tuition is important, as you can filter your search according to what you want. 
  3. Contact private Japanese tutors. Now that you know what you want and how you want it, start contacting tutors! Our recommendation is to compare profiles and look at the characteristics of each profile: timetable, price, qualifications, reviews, level of Japanese... 

Why start Japanese classes and learn Japanese 

The reasons for learning Japanese are many and vary from person to person. There are thousands of reasons to learn a language or to start language classes, from improving their curriculum to mere curiosity about the language. But if you haven't yet found a reason to learn Japanese, here's why it's useful to learn Japanese today: 

  • The city of technological progress. Nobody can deny that Japan is the country of technology par excellence. You find technology everywhere (including the bathroom) and you have the feeling of being in another world because of how exotic it all is. If you like engineering, computers or any other technology, Japan is a country you will enjoy very much. 
  • It will make it easier for them to learn more Asian languages. Starting with Japanese will make it easier if you want to learn Korean or Chinese later on. Asian languages are different from each other, but also similar in some ways. So once you start with one, you will find it easier to learn the others. 
  • A beautiful language. The writing of any Asian language is like a work of art. It takes years to learn how to do it and the result, once you see it, is more than satisfactory. Of course, this is one of the most beautiful parts of the language. 
  • Do you know anyone who speaks Japanese and English? Surely both numbers are completely different. The truth is that there are not many people who can speak Japanese in UK, so if you want to find a job or differentiate yourself from the rest, Japanese is key. 

Benefits of online tuition in Japanese 

At FindTutors, 80% of the tutors give online tuition. Would you be interested in starting Japanese lessons online? These lessons tend to have a more flexible schedule and are generally cheaper as there are no travel costs. But learning Japanese online also has other benefits: 

  • Learn at your own pace and on your own schedule, making it more convenient for those with busy lifestyles.
  • Learning Japanese online can be more cost-effective than traditional classes.
  • Online Japanese classes can raise your status in the workplace, making you more approachable and opening up opportunities for career advancement. 
  • Studying Japanese can allow you to become more culturally enriched and gain a deeper understanding of Japanese traditions and way of life. 
  • Online classes can lead to more friends, love, and opportunities for international understanding.
