Learn Japanese Online: Introductory Level

Introductory Japanese

At JOI, you can learn Japanese at your own pace, taking affordable online lessons on your schedule, and take a break whenever you need.

Start Learning Japanese Online with FlexLessons

To get started, we recommend our Introductory FlexLessons class, a live, small-group session with a professional Japanese teacher.

No previous Japanese study is needed. You’ll start from the very beginning—Japanese greetings, simple questions in Japanese—and a native Japanese teacher will guide you every step.

No Japanese reading ability is required. Japanese writing (hiragana and katakana) will be introduced, but everything is presented with romaji (Roman letters like these, such as “konnichi-wa”) as well. English help and translations are added as needed.

Private Lessons Are Also Available

Nothing beats the value of FlexLessons, and we recommend FlexLessons for all students of Japanese. However, if you prefer private lessons, please contact us to make arrangements. Coordinated private instruction from two or more of JOI's professional Japanese teachers is also available.

Tensaku, Japanese Quizzes, and More

While studying Japanese online, don’t forget to take the free Introductory daily quiz, even on days when you don’t have a lesson. (And maybe try a few beginner quizzes.) These quizzes reinforce the phrases you learn in JOI classes and get you ready for your next step in learning Japanese: Beginner.

We want JOI to be the best, most affordable place to learn Japanese online, live from professional Japanese teachers.

Online Japanese Classes—Instantly! JOI is an online Japanese school. Connect a headset (webcams are optional) to your computer (Windows, Macintosh, or Linux), and you can learn Japanese online in real time from professional, native Japanese teachers. Japanese Lesson Choices for Every Need Our FlexLessons classes, a small-group classroom environment with 1 to 7 students, are a great way to get started learning Japanese online. FlexLessons are our most popular, most affordable Japanese lesson option. With our unique FlexLessons Modular Instruction SystemTM, you can take FlexLessons on your own schedule, at your own pace, and never worry about falling behind. We offer preparation classes for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT), including a JLPT N4 class, a JLPT N2 and N3 class, and a JLPT N1 class. These FlexLessons classes (small-group lessons) focus specifically on JLPT grammar, vocabulary, Kanji, and reading comprehension. Like all FlexLessons classes, you can start these online Japanese classes at any time and take classes when your schedule permits. JOI's competitively priced private Japanese lessons offer a one-on-one alternative. For the most intensive private instruction, you can choose team-up private Japanese lessons, and receive coordinated private instruction from two or more JOI teachers. Private lessons are available at two service levels: Silver and Gold. Corporate Japanese training is also available.
