Taking the plunge into online study can be daunting. So, don’t just take our word for it, read these encouraging testimonials from past students on how the experience of education has had a profound impact on their life.

"I have been studying at BJLC for 1 year. I chose BJLC because I thought the levels of classes offered were good, I liked the idea of smaller, more personalized classes and I liked that the teachers are Japanese people. I think the one-on-one type classes are great for conversation. It's such a friendly class.

I have achieved my goals so far! I can definitely understand and speak more Japanese than before. I am learning kanji, and I have taken a JLPT test (I haven't got my results yet!). My teacher is wonderful! She's very friendly and explains things very well in class." - Amanda


"I have gained confidence in speaking Japanese whilst traveling in Japan on holiday, able to read basic menu items, and ask for help from locals. The teachers are very good at ensuring we understand the topics. I like the casual nature of learning on a weekend in small groups." - Gene


“I am very much enjoying my Japanese language lessons with Takako! I am finding it interesting and Takako is a great teacher ” - Stephanie
