Learn Japanese with Asuka: learning at your own pace and in your own place!

Learn Japanese with Asuka has been specially designed by one of our Japanese tutors to offer a course that will enable you to learn a language at a time and pace that suits your needs. When you sign up to this course you will be given access to our virtual learning environment (VLE) on which video tutorials with Asuka will be made available on a weekly basis. These will provide an introduction to the material covered in the course which you can watch at a time convenient to you. They are supplemented by additional materials and weekly tasks which you can complete during the week and submit to the tutor for feedback. Each week Asuka will offer a live Q&A session so that you can ask questions about any aspects of the learning material and tasks for which you need additional help or clarification. In addition you will be able to post questions to Asuka via the VLE and also receive individual feedback via email on the weekly tasks.

Courses available:

Learn Japanese with Asuka Stage 1 (Beginners)

Learn Japanese with Asuka Stage 2 (Post-beginners/improvers)

The courses will run for 24 weeks from 10th January to 21st July 2022 and offer the equivalent learning outcomes to one of our full-year Stage 1 (Beginners) or Stage 2 (pre-intermediate) courses.

The Q&A lesson will take place every Monday (Stage 1) and every Wednesday (Stage 2) between 20:30 and 21:00 to answer any questions about the aspects of the learning material for which you need additional help or clarification.

So, if you are looking for a different way of learning which offers all the flexibility of an online course but with full tutor support Learn Japanese with Asuka is the ideal course for you.
