Having lived in Japan a long time ago I wanted some help with conversational Japanese before I took... a trip back. Yekta helped me through one-to-one classes to relearn hiragana and katakana, as well as participating in verbal and written exercises, which focussed on different aspects of grammar each time. Her lessons were always well-thought through and tailor-made for me and I enjoyed them enormously. She gave me the confidence to start speaking basic Japanese again - and the trip was a huge success, not least because I was able to communicate when I got there! Highly recommend this language school.read more

I've always felt that learning another language was next to impossible after my experience at... secondary school, but I can happily say I have now changed my mind!For the last year, I have had a private teacher from Learn Japanese and have made significant progress. Each lesson is tailored to me and my current level, really fun, and my teacher very graciously puts up with my endless number of questions.I hope one day to visit or even live in Japan, and if you are thinking of learning Japanese I can't think of a better school to do it with. If you take just one class, I am sure you will get hooked just like me.read more

Yekta Eren has been teaching my 6th Form son Beginners Japanese and working towards a spoken... language qualification. He has been having a great learning experience with Yekta. She is very student led. He really enjoys her lessons, she works at his pace and is always understanding when school commitments interfere with their programme of learning. Yekta is very flexible and a great communicator. She is always open to rescheduling a lesson if needed and she is happy to teach sessions during half-terms and holidays to keep up momentum towards a learning goal.I recommend Yekta highly - she is great.read more

I had a great lesson! I have been learning Japanese on Duolingo but badly need conversation practice. My teacher assessed my level and went over basic grammar. She was informative, patient and helpful. We also covered some language etiquette. I would definitely recommend her.
Yekta is a brilliant teacher, very patient and understanding and will go at a pace that suits you, she is very encouraging and makes you feel confident in what you’re saying/writing, she is always happy to help if you’ve got any questions whether it’s during the lesson or at home when practicing, just send her a text and she will help straight away, she recommends other sources that can help at home such as books and apps as well.
