Q. How much will the teacher actually help me?
The comment section to ask the teacher a question is open 24 hours / day for all lessons.
The lessons also come with homework to check your comprehension, if you submit your homework, the teacher will reply with corrections by the next day.
For a sample of a teacher's response, click here.
As an experienced professional in Japanese language education, Chika Sensei can break down the Japanese grammar and point out mistakes, explaining the structure and nuances of Japanese in an easy-to-understand way.
You will not get the sort of answer a regular Japanese person would give.
If you ask something, you can be sure you will always get a helpful response from the teacher.
You can also use the private lesson that comes with the course to meet your teacher for a personal consultation.
If you struggle with something, don't hesitate to ask your teacher for help each and every time.
Q.Does this course guarantee I will pass the JLPT?
This course is designed so that if you study everything in the course, you will pass successfully.
Additionally, the mock test helps you to spot and overcome any weak points.
So, first of all, you can take the mock test.
It explains the percentages you need to pass, and allows you to compare your results and find in which subjects you need to improve.
Then you can work on those subjects specifically by reviewing the lessons that deal with those points.
If you are still not sure what you need to do after the mock test, you can talk to your teacher about the mock test results.
Then your teacher can help you focus on which lessons you need to study more carefully.
This method is very effective for pre-exam preparation.
Q.There's less than 6 months before the next JLPT exam. Will that be enough time?
Yes, it could be because you don't have to wait for the emails.
All the contents are immediately available as soon as your application is accepted, so you can study at whatever speed is best for you. (The private lesson can be booked from the second month)
