Review from students

The teachers are so friendly, nice and effective!

I have been using JapaTalk since June 2020 and I am very satisfied with it!
It's really convenient, user-friendly and the price is reasonable. The teachers are so friendly, nice and effective! With JapaTalk, I improved my Japanese skills. I highly recommend it for Japanese learners like me.

I wish I had found JapaTalk earlier on in my Japanese journey!

When it comes to language learning, consistency is the key! What JapaTalk allows me to do is take very affordable lessons on daily basis and it is easy to fit a 25 min. lesson into my schedule. I especially like the fact that, depending on the teacher, you can literally book a lesson less than an hour in advance! There is a vast choice of teachers and they are all very friendly. I wish I had found JapaTalk earlier on in my Japanese journey!

Thanks to Japatalk help me to realize this dream.

I really enjoy JapaTalk. I can find a lot of teachers online. The teachers come from many areas of Japan, so I can learn many different kinds of Japanese culture.
I have met a teacher who is a retired high school teacher. She taught me a lot and her writing skill is very good. I got very good writing training with her. I also have met a teacher whose personality is very bright. She is very friendly and because she is experienced in a Japanese language school, she knows a lot of problems of foreigners.
Besides, I also have met a monk who teaches Japanese, a university student, or a very warming grandmother. Here in JapaTalk I always have a wonderful time with Japanese.
Although these two years we are in the COVID pandemic, we still could enjoy hour online time with our loving Japanese language and culture.
I plan to study in Japan, and thanks to Japatalk help me to realize this dream. I will go to Japan until the new entry restriction is cancelled. Thank you Japatalk.

This is a fairly ideal platform for busy people as we can adjust the class schedule, request topics of learning, and even choose teachers. There are no other better platforms to recommend so far :)

JapaTalk is a very well organized platform/company for Japanese learners. You can find a suitable native Japanese teacher from anywhere in the world. Using the website and finding teachers are very easy, and the price is very reasonable. I would definitely recommend it to any Japanese learner.

Most teachers and good and reliable, find a good teacher and book away!

Affordable and efficient. It gets the message across very clearly. Good for students who do not want to spend a lot of money on private lessons and do not want to get out of their room to meet people.

Japan talk has a search function that is very useful and easy to find a suitable teacher for your requirement. I highly recommend it to my friends if they want to learn Japanese in 1-1 and communicate with native people.

JapaTalk is a convenient and affordable platform to learn Japanese. Aside from learning, you get to meet interesting people and foster relationships. My teacher and I always enjoy ourselves during lessons because it's not just about rigid learning like in a classroom, but really about being able to talk to a person in a natural way. I have and continue to recommend JapaTalk to my friends or anyone who asks me how I study Japanese.
