I’ve being very busy working on the New Course for this year, unfortunately I have not being very expressive on the fact I am offering a course to the public.
It is tough being a one man show, creating your own course from your own writing plus having to work,study, and live.
This course has being setup to cater for the JLPT5 and 4 this year. It is recommended only for those that are keen to prep themselves for that. There are 3 joining dates and 3 modules that I like to call Stages. Those 3 joining dates are for the beginning of each term.(3 terms in total) There will be exams at end of each term including lots of homework on a weekly basis.
3 Joining dates are :
Now up till 7th February for Term1
1st – 9th of May for Term 2
1st – 5th September for Term 3
Please note this course requires you to know Hiragana and Katakana before hand.
I am in the process of updating everything for 2015
Just letting you know in case you wonderinng why certain aspects of the website is underdeveloped or lacking info. I will make another post once everything is up to date.
I am busy working on some new stuff for 2015
A New student study category that is better focused for JLPT studies and an official standard checker quarterly exams to see if you fit to handle the heat of the level you are studying on. This will be used for the new Top10.
Most likely can expect to see this info official towards end of the 1st week of January.

Everyone is studying hard now ever since the news of Japanese Language Proficiency Test was released.
There are a lot changes in development with Students and Teachers.
一新 (いっしん) – complete change; reform; restoration; remodeling; renewal.
Ever since the announcement of Japanese Language Proficiency Test and subtle but important need for Japanese Fluent Foreigners, there has been a bit of a subtle revolution going on I feel. More and more websites showing up with unique styles teaching of Japanese. A lot of my students are very excited to pass the their first Japanese Language Proficiency Test test. I am very excited to use it to express my technique and passion for teaching Japanese. Its in the end all very revolutionary the current happenings within South Africa with Japan and the need for Japanese speaking foreigners. Who knows what the future may hold! Exciting times!

This month is the last month for the ridiculous cheap group fees.
If you go for the this option now, it will never change for the entire year but rest assured money is not the most important thing so if this doesn’t work for you there is always another way!
Drop me a mail and Ill gladly send you the info on what type of lessons I give at what kind of cost.
Some people prefer private lessons and some prefer groups. Both have there pros and cons.
Besides what I have to offer, this year Japanese Language Proficiency Test tests will become available to us here in Johannesburg.
This is actually huge!The lack of tests gives us the freedom to run ignorant of our current Japanese proficiency level. I’m convinced that the impact of this will be huge as now those that say don’t have the freedom yet to get to Japan have at the least the freedom to prepare well for that day that comes.Self study is possible but without awareness I believe It becomes a short lived experienced. If you would like to find out more info about this please send me a mail or give me a call.
A lot has been going on recently, one of them I must emphasise is the prices for groups are really low at the moment. The special is going on from March till April. If you really like Japanese and money is an issue.. Id recommend to get yourself into gear and request the price list. I don’t like to post this info because I prefer knowing who is interested
You may not like groups… That could be your main reason to be not interested but I promise you if you take the leap of faith you may be surprised how fun and enlightening Japanese Group Lessons can be! And I’m sure you will come back, not because of the group but because the enjoyment factor is worth it!
