  • Speaking Sessions

    Practice your Japanese speaking through an informal free talk conversation with a Native Japanese speaker. (Half the price of regular learning sessions)

    Speaking sessions are a way to practice Japanese with a native Japanese speaker. You can use the Japanese that you already know to have informal conversations.

    We recommend speaking sessions for students who:

    • - Do not live in Japan -but would like to practice speaking with a native speaker.
    • - Want to increase their conversational fluency through practice.
    • - Enjoy learning by doing through output. The more you speak - the better you will become!

  • Online Japanese Lessons

    Coto offers Online Japanese Lessons.

    There are several types of Online Japanese Lessons that we offer:

    Each of these have different types of instruction and methods - also pricing for them is different.

    1-1 Online Japanese Lessons

    Our 1-1 Online Japanese lessons have two categories of lesson.

    • Speaking Sessions
    • Learning Sessions

    Speaking Sessions are designed to give a speaking practice environment with a native practice partner.

    During these sessions - there is no instruction of new concepts from a teacher - but rather just speaking practice in a free conversation environment.

    Learning Sessions are designed to teach new concepts in an instructive format. This will allow the student to learn new grammar concepts in a linear format with our custom materials.

    If you are interested in exploring availability or have questions about our online lessons - please contact us through email or online at

    Online JLPT Prep Courses

    Our online JLPT Prep courses are a bit different.

    We offer them for the following levels of the JLPT:

    These classes could be described as followed:

    • Group class in a "lecture" format
    • Designed to prepare for the written exam
    • Classes are recorded so the student can review on their own

    These classes take place 1x or 2x per week depending on if you are enrolled in both the "Kanji and Vocabulary" and "Grammar and Reading" Components - based on the level of the exam.

    Payment / Enrollment / Duration of the Course

    You may want to know - when do our JLPT Courses start? You can enroll any time - the courses themselves repeat and are paid for on a monthly basis.

    The entire curriculum for our N3, N2, and N1 courses are 6 months each.

    The curriculum is taught in a linear fashion - but there is no set start or end date.

    So, if you joined during month 3 - you would study for months 3,4,5,6, and then start with a new class at 1, and 2.

    To enroll:

    • Visit the course page.
    • Fill out the sign up form with your details.
    • We will send you a payment link for the tuition and course materials fee based on your needs.
    • Pay the course materials fee - and we will give you access to the online course system and enroll you. You will be notified about this through email.

      You can learn more at our online JLPT Prep Courses website.

    Online Writing Only Courses

    We have a third type of online lesson and that is our writing only business email course.

    This course does not have a live instructor - rather it is a correspondence course where your written business email assignments are graded and assessed by our professional instructor.

    You can learn more about our business email writing course at our dedicated page.

  • Part-time Courses

    What are Part-time Courses?

    Our Part-time Courses are designed to teach practical aspects of Japanese.

    Instead of a comprehensive approach - part-time courses focus on teaching grammar, speaking, and other topics.

    These courses are good for students who have already learned some Japanese but want to improve their grammar, or their speaking specifically.

    Are Part-time Courses available in the Evenings and on Saturdays?

    Yes they are! You can see a full schedule of our Part-time Courses here: (Click on part-time)

  • Intensive Courses

    How Long Are Your "Intensive Courses"?

    Our Intensive Japanese Language Courses are 3 hours long.
    3 blocks of 50 minute sessions with a 10 minute break in-between.

    How Many Levels Are There for Intensive Courses?

    Intensive course ranges from beginner to advanced Japanese over 16 terms of 4 weeks. Total beginners are most welcome to join our crash course program. More information on our level is available here.
