Frequently Asked Questions

On LanguaTalk, you can find exceptional tutors for 1-on-1 Japanese lessons tailored to your goals and learning preferences. Here’s how to try it for yourself:

1 - Find your ideal tutor by browsing videos, reviews, pricing and availability.

2 - Book a trial. Many tutors offer a 30-minute trial for free; others charge a discounted price.

3 - Take personalised lessons with your new tutor via video call. Or try someone else.

No card is required to book a free trial session. Please only book if you’re considering taking lessons. Pricing varies by tutor and you can use the filter to find someone who fits your budget. You can pay one lesson at a time, or buy in bulk for a discount (open a tutor's profile to see their pricing options).

We’re confident you’ll love learning via LanguaTalk. We're trusted by students all over the world because we're transparent. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display reviews on tutors’ profiles.

99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. Why? Because unlike other platforms, we accept only the top 10% of tutor applications.

To see our full FAQs or get help from our friendly team, click the 'Help' button in the bottom-right. You can also watch students talking about their experiences learning via LanguaTalk below.

New to LanguaTalk? You'll have one credit for a free trial. Most tutors offer a trial for free. If they do not, they’ll offer a trial session at a discount compared to their usual hourly rate.

Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to assess whether the tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in Japanese as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too!

After your session, if you feel that the tutor isn’t quite right for you, you can simply book a trial with someone else.

As each learner is different, there is no one best program for everyone.

What is best for you will depend on your learning preferences, budget, availability and goals.

LanguaTalk tutors are chosen for their experience and adaptability. So if you want to focus on quickly developing a conversational level of Japanese, you can mention this when booking and your tutor will get you speaking and listening as much as possible during the classes

Consistently practicing speaking and listening is the key to becoming conversational fast.

We also have cutting-edge learning software, Langua, which can help you build fluency between classes.

There are many ways to do this.

Perhaps the effective method is to talk to native-speakers regularly.

Language exchanges are one way to meet native-speakers, however this is inefficient as you have to travel to the meetup and help your partners learn your language too.

At LanguaTalk, you can get 1-on-1 conversational Japanese classes online.

You can choose a tutor who is free when you are, using the availability filter. Then meet them for a 30-minute trial session.

If you decide to take classes, your tutor will tailor them to your goals, so you can reach a conversational level as fast as possible.

If you already know a similar language and are able to study intensively, it is possible to reach a conversational level in 3 months by taking regular Japanese classes online and getting lots of listening practice in between.

However, for most people, it will take longer to achieve this level.

Language learning requires patience and perseverance!
