Differences between Partner and Pro Class

 Partner class

This course is popular with students on a budget who want to study Japanese. Tutors are unpaid volunteer staff who have been approved by HH&HJ after a careful selection process.  These tutors may or may not have professional educational experience, but all are native speaking Japanese people with some level of English fluency. Some of them are aspiring Japanese teachers. Many of them have lived overseas or worked with overseas volunteers. Students work with a tutor to set up a location and schedule workable for each person

 Pro class 

Tutors are professional, experienced Japanese teachers. This course is best suited for students who are not on a strict budget and want to rapidly improve their Japanese for occupational or educational reasons. Pro classes are especially appropriate for students who want to score well on the Japanese Proficiency Language Test. Pro class tutors can teach at your desired time and location, including your home or office.

Student testimony

The teachers are friendly, patient, very helpful, and you can learn the language in a comfortable environment.  My learning is continuing even after returning to my home country. Thank you!
Jennifer Stone

My course was run by a highly qualified teacher, so I had the motivation to continue learning Japanese. She always encouraged me, even when my work was very busy.
Michael Chew

All of the class time with the tutor at HHJapanese were a great experiences. My teacher has made the process of learning Japanese much easier. I would definitely recommend this class to improve my Japanese conversation skills.
Katherine Garcia

This partner class was very good. You could speak a lot. When they taught only in Japanese and I didn't understand, I would ask questions in English and they would explain in English. Thank you!
Christopher Goodall

What an experience! Thanks to my teacher's passion, I love Japanese even more. I was able to learn in a short time what I thought would take me years to learn. I can now enjoy the latest Japanese anime without subtitles.
Nicole Dryden

The person I chose for my family was Naomi.  She was an excellent tutor and who loved to play games and sing with my children. She had studied abroad, so she was very good at English.  I am so thankful that because of Naomi’s instruction, my son was able make good friends with Japanese children.

Naoteru Honda founded HH JapaNeeds as a language training school in 2010. Initially, he began and managed some companies before HH with little success. What helped him through these difficult times was attending an English language school. Learning a new language was a bold and difficult decision. How could he master a language that was so foreign to him? However, he persevered, and gained confidence in himself and a positive outlook on life when he realized he could express his feelings in a different language with greater and greater fluency. Initially, his language learning seemed like such a small step, but the journey he began was incredibly life-changing. With the desire to share this life-changing experience, he started HH JapaNeeds. We look forward to helping you being your own language learning journey.

Supported by HH&HJ Inc.

HH&HJ's mission is to build a greater level of multicultural coexistence in the world. We hope to achieve this by promoting, through education, Japan’s language and culture.  As more foreigners increase their understanding of Japanese culture and ability to communicate in Japanese, a greater number of relationships are formed between them and Japanese people.  We feel strongly that these relationships form the foundation of a world peace and mutual respect between cultures. Thank you for your support. Love all, serve all!
