For example,


This sentence means, The child is made to do his homework by his father.


This sentence means, The child is m...

Welcome to our community

Hi everyone,

Thank you so much for visiting our mini-site!

It is very nice to meet you :)

We are a group of professional Japanese teachers working as a team called Asao Language School.

We provide quality-learning experience to Japanese learners of various levels, professional backgrounds, nationalities, first languages and age groups with their individual study goals both in person and online.

All of us are native Japanese speakers with extensive teaching experience both in Japan and abroad.

We specialize in teaching Conversational Japanese, General Japanese, Academic Japanese, Exam Preparation and Business Japanese. 

We originally come from various professional backgrounds, such as Engineering, IT, Sales, Marketing, Accounting, Design, Art, Education, Medical, Retail, Pharmaceutical, Translation, Tourism, Editorial, Journalism, Music, Food and so on.

We are passionate about what we do and hope that our assistance provides additional contributions to your Japanese study :)

Lesson time and locations:

We provide lessons both in person and online from 08:00 to 22:00 from Monday to Sunday including public holidays.

Our lessons in person take place at our classrooms in Shin-Yurigaoka (within a 3 minutes' walk from North Gate), in Shinjuku (within a 2 minutes' walk from JR Shinjuku South Gate) and at the locations of your choice in the Kanto region as well as online.

Lessons in person outside our classrooms can be held at public places, rental private spaces and offices at your preferred location.

Teaching methodology:

In our lessons, we apply interactive teaching methodologies. Our lesson plans are specifically tailored to fit your academic needs. 

Please feel free to let us know your questions and requests anytime. Our biggest priority is always to focus on your needs in each lesson. 

We generally use Direct Method in our lessons. However, if requested, other languages, e.g. English, Mandarin, French can be used supplementarily. 

Lesson Style and Structure:
We apply a communicative approach in our lessons to maximise the amount of time you are outputting. Our teaching style is interactive and we always make sure that our lessons are fun, engaging and relaxing but professional and results oriented at the same time.

A 60-minute Private Lesson typically consists of a grammar lesson, speaking and listening practice while new vocabulary, idioms and expressions are introduced throughout the lesson. 

A sample 60-minute lesson structure is as followed:

0 - 20 minutes: 
Catch-up, Welcome general questions and Check homework
20 - 50 minutes: 
Review and Work on new topics
50 - 60 minutes: 
Welcome questions again

We are often requested to focus on improving your speaking and listening skills. However, we also recognize that looking into reading and writing tasks is equally important for your fluency progress.

For Whom:

Our Lessons cover various proficiency levels, from Japanese for everyday usage to JLPT Preparation and Business Japanese.

Students, families, expats, international assignees and corporate personnel as well as those who wish to supplement their current lessons at other institutions are welcome.

Lesson fees (tax included):

In person in Shin-Yurigaoka and Shinjuku: 

A 60 minute Private Lesson (1 to 1) is JPY 3950
A 90 minute Private Lesson (1 to 1) is JPY 5700

A 120 minute Semi Private Lesson (1 to 2 or 1 to 3) is JPY 4000 per person

Having lessons outside our classrooms will require additional fees of 500 yen per day as the teacher's round trip transportation cost. Calculating from Shinjuku, if the transportation costs exceed 500 yen to reach the lesson location, actual expense will apply.

No additional fees, e.g. registration fee, course textbook and materials fees.

(Semi-Private lessons are available for those wish to study with their partner, family and colleagues, providing their purpose of learning and their current Japanese levels are the same.)
