If you are looking for Portland Japanese lessons, reach out to Varsity Tutors. We can help high school students at David Douglas High School, undergraduates at the University of Portland, and adult learners study Japanese. Regardless of whether you are just starting out or you already know some Japanese, Japanese lessons can help you.

Japanese is one of the world's major languages. It is spoken by more than 127 million people. Japanese is mostly spoken in the Japanese archipelago. It is believed that it belongs to the Japonic language group, but it was previously believed to be unrelated to any other language. Some have attempted to establish a relationship between Japanese and other languages, particularly Korean.

Japanese is a useful language to know, even if you do not plan on traveling to Japan. Japan has one of the largest economies in the world. Students at Lincoln High School who are planning on studying business or finance can benefit from taking Japanese lessons.

How can I benefit from taking Portland Japanese lessons?

Japanese is a difficult language to learn. However, it can be easier than other Asian languages such as Chinese and Vietnamese, as it is not a tonal language. Taking Portland Japanese lessons can give you an opportunity to learn Japanese in a structured and collaborative environment. You have two options: You can take a Japanese class or you can study with a private tutor.

Some aspects of Japanese can actually make it easier to learn once you get the hang of it. For example, Japanese nouns have no specific number or gender forms. The same exact word can have either a single or plural connotation. To specify an exact number, counter words are often used. Your Japanese class instructor can help you understand how to use nouns properly and how to specify exact numbers when needed.

Japanese pronunciation is an area where many students can use help. It is important to know how to pronounce words correctly when you are speaking Japanese. Studying in a Japanese class can give you an opportunity to improve your Japanese pronunciation. Speaking with other students can also help your fluency. Your class instructor might even conduct entire sessions entirely in Japanese with no English being spoken, depending on your level.

If you want some private time with your instructor, you can request that as well. This way, you can ask any questions that you did not have time to ask in class. The classes are designed to give students as many opportunities as possible to improve their Japanese.

You can also opt to study with a private Portland Japanese tutor. Studying with a private mentor can give you an opportunity to study at your own pace. You can focus on topics that you are particularly interested in, such as Japanese history or culture, or topics that you are having difficulty with, such as Japanese grammar. You can even skip topics that you already understand.

Private language mentoring can take place in a one-on-one environment, without any outside distractions. Your private mentor can go beyond simply teaching you Japanese. They can help you weed out unproductive behaviors that interfere with your studies. A private mentor can understand your learning style and work with it.

You have two options when it comes to studying with a private Portland Japanese tutor. The first option is studying with them online by using our Live Learning Platform. You can interact with them as if you were sitting across from them at the same table. You can use the virtual whiteboard to enhance your study sessions. Another option is studying with your private language instructor in person. If you prefer in-person tutoring, we can arrange for that to take place at your home, in a nearby coffee shop, or anywhere else you feel comfortable.
