This is for you if:-
- You want learning Japanese to be easier.
- You want your spoken Japanese to be better, faster.
- You want to meet Japanese speakers, make friends and connections around the world.
- You want to feel more confident speaking Japanese.
- You realise that time to time (when you get the chance to talk in Japanese) you speak Japanese as if you were translating it from your mother tongue.
- Your biggest challenge is trying to place the words the correct way (since we don't place the verb at the end of the phrase and as a whole, Japanese syntax is the opposite to the English)
- You just don't practice enough and don't have the vocabulary - at least at the forefront of your mind where it would be most useful!-
- You have lived in Japan and you remember that your biggest challenge was to build a sentence in your head.
- You are understanding what people are saying but it always takes forever to reply with even the most simple phrase.
- You applied for a job in Japan - well, you will need to speak to people in Japanese occasionally ;-).
- You are studying to take the N2 exam soon and want to improve your listening.
- You are planning to spend more time in Japan in the future and need to invest in some language study and practice.
