  • MLC is very helpful in improving my Japanese, I have been taken Skype private lesson for almost 2 years with my friend and we just passed N3.
    During these 2 years we also invite 2 of our friends to join the MLC Japanese lesson and they are vey enjoy and also got the improvement as well.
    The good thing is you can ask teacher to custom the class and lesson for you so you can improve the part of Japanese that you want to be better.
    We will continue learning Japanese with MLC and pass N2 this year and N1 next year !

    MLC 對我的日語很有幫助,尤其是口說的部分
    我和朋友一起上Skype 私人課程將近2 年,而且我們剛剛通過了N3。
    在這兩年中,我們還邀請了我們的2 位朋友參加MLC 日語課程,他們非常喜歡並且 也得到了進步。
    好消息是你可以要求老師為你定制課程和課程,這樣你就可以提高你想要變得更好 的部分。
  • MLC has been the perfect school for my Japanese studies. Everything from the professionalism of staff to the progression of the lessons went beyond my expectations. Taking tailored online private lessons perfectly suited my needs. Each session was engaging, fun, and allowed me to gain a lot about the Japanese language, whether it be through recorded notes, worksheets or targeted conversations.
    I highly recommend MLC for anyone studying Japanese, especially at the advanced level. Shintani-sensei's abilities with advanced Japanese language, her capacity to find the right expressions and her extensive knowledge of the expectations of N1 are really what has made my learning experience a success.
    The school used various IT tools for lessons (links, Skype, Google docs, etc.) which made the online learning experience run smoothly and efficiently. Overall, this experience was an affirmation that learning online can have the same, or even better positive outcomes as learning onsite.
  • MLC is a fantastic school that is very prompt and responsive to a student's needs. After nearly 2 years of Skype lessons I have moved to Tokyo for work, and I have been set on the road to success. I have been self-sufficient and confident that my language skills will allow me to handle most day to day encounters with minimal problems.
    My lessons have always been suited to my specific goals, and my highly skilled sensei has worked with me to ensure that each lesson is quite valuable. MLC is one of the most important keys to my success.
  • "Skype Business lessons have given me the confidence, as well as, the tools to communicate with my colleagues effortlessly. Thank You MLC!"
  • "MLC skype lessons are very convenient, I can learn at my own pace and can get various information about Japan too. MLC People are very kind and my sensei is very cool. I have been taking skype lessons since 2012 and it's the best solution for me."
  • "Very helpful. Skype lessons have enabled me to learn Japanese despite my busy schedule."
  • "My teacher is always happy to answer questions about Japanese language or culture, and all the teachers are really nice and good at what they do."
  • "Skype lesson helps me passing the N1 exam in a year time. I learn quick in one on one teaching. I also learn about Japanese culture and life style, those are not on text books. Speaking fluent Japanese gives Me a good job and many good Japanese friends. All the teachers are really nice and good at what they do."
  • "I have been taking skype lessons for more than three years now. My lessons are always on Saturday. When I cannot have a lesson on Saturday, it has been no problem postpone the lesson, to choose the following day or the next week instead. We use books but I always get additional worksheets for each lesson and for my homework. All my exercises, homework and texts are thoroughly checked and corrected. I always get a good explanation when I made a mistake.
    My teacher is great. She can explain everything very well, so that I have no problems understanding difficult topics. She encourages me to talk and she answers all my questions. She is always friendly and helpful and just a wonderful person. Thanks to her teaching I was able to pass the JLPT N4 test.
    The skype lessons are a great way to get into contact with such an experienced and capable teacher and to enjoy single lessons. It is very useful especially when there is no possibility to find such a teacher in your hometown or nearby the place you live. I highly recommend these skype lessons. The teaching, the support and the whole team are superb. "
