Learn from a professional translator currently employed by a major video game developer who has lived and worked in Japan for more than 13 years, and was where you are now 20 years ago, a student of Japanese.

My first experience with the Japanese language was as a kid in the 10th grade. I fell so much in love with the Japanese language that I made it major course of study in my university. I was selected to participate in the Japan Exchange Teaching program me and spent my first years in Japan working as an Assistant English Language Teacher and honing my Japanese skill in the real world. My experience in Japan kept me there for 13+ years and landed me my current career of 5 years with a well-known video game developer.

Despite what native speakers might tell you, Japanese is not any more difficult than English or many other languages.

Allow me to help you understand and communicate in this awesome language.
