Learn Japanese

with Chikako

Because learning Japanese is easy if you’re having fun doing it!



Taking on a new language can be incredibly intimidating — new words, new alphabet, new everything, oh my! Whether you’re an absolute beginner, or just hoping to expand your skills, join me, Chika, for an adventure into the Japanese language with the help of multimedia, manga, anime and more.

  • “Another great lesson with Chikako. She is without a doubt the best teacher I have ever had on any subject. And, quite possibly, the nicest person I have ever met.”

    - From Steve-san

  • “Amazing lesson! Very structured, lots of focus on speaking. Chikako is a great teacher, very patient, making sure that the lessons are personalised. I'm very looking forward to next ones!”
