I am also a college Japanese instructor of 17 years. The content I cover in this online course is worth 5 to 6 weeks of a Japanese daily class at a college or university.
With this course, you will get the same amount of information from the comfort of your own home. You will even be able to understand the fundamentals of Japanese verbs in as short as 11 days if you take one lesson a day, although how fast you go through each lesson is totally up to you.
If you have used or currently use the textbook Genki, this course will greatly help you understand Lesson 3 and most of Lesson 4.
Let’s take a look at the content and see if this online course is going to be helpful for you. Below are just some of the major things you’ll learn.
The Fundamentals of Japanese Verbs
First of all, you need to know that we have different speech styles in Japanese. Different verb forms affect your speech styles and how you sound to other people. Learn what form to use for you to sound most proper as an adult.
Do you know that a Japanese dictionary lists all the Japanese verbs in Plain Form which you are not supposed to use in your speech unless you are speaking to someone informally? Hence, you have to convert a verb you find in the dictionary into the proper form to avoid sounding inappropriate. In this course, you will learn how to convert verbs in Plain Form (Dictionary Form) to Polite Form (Masu Form). A lesson will explain how to do it step by step for each verb group in Japanese.
Do you know how to change a Japanese Affirmative verb into a Negative verb? Do you know how to properly use a Negative verb in sentences? Learn how native speakers would use a negative verb in a flow of sentences like this one.
Let’s learn how to appropriately ask a question Do you…? without unintentionally offending someone. (Yes, some Japanese learners keep doing this without knowing so!) Learn how to ask and answer questions using Japanese verbs.
Do you know how to say you do something “at” a place and you go “to” a place? This is the topic that confuses many Japanese learners. You need to mark a place with the right Particle to say what you mean, and I explain it in depth in this course. You will learn to differentiate “at” a place and “to” a place in Japanese.
There Is Much More!
Here is a list of topics you will learn in this course. In addition, this course comes with lots of materials that you can download and print out. Download one PDF material from here as a sample.
The course especially focuses on developing your skill of constructing sentences. I will discuss how Japanese sentences are structured differently from English. Moreover, I share a simple technique to translate an English sentence to Japanese, such as I exercise at the gym every morning. See a segment of the lesson in the video below.

Understand Japanese Verbs Quickly
I have a long experience of teaching Japanese at the college level. As you probably know, attending a college class is neither easy nor cheap. In this online course, you can earn the same level of Japanese knowledge at a quicker pace for a lot less money.
I’ve had many students in my teaching career who couldn’t continue my class because they could no longer pay the tuition. Many students are working and supporting themselves.
This is one of the main reasons I started teaching online. I wished to make Japanese learning opportunities more affordable and accessible for people. Besides, I wanted to provide a high-quality, college level of instruction for my online learners. As a Japanese language professional, that is exactly what I am providing in this course.
But I Can Find Free Lessons on YouTube
True. You can find lots of free Japanese lessons on YouTube or other websites. If they work wonderfully for you, that is great. What I offer in my online courses is a thought-out path of learning. Each step is carefully selected and each lesson is thoroughly planned. Based on my experience as a teacher, I provide the most efficient path and useful materials for you to learn Japanese.
If that is what you are looking for, this course will serve you well. One thing I know for sure. I always want to teach someone who actually learns from me. I would love to assist you to understand Japanese verbs and Particles in this new course.
