② Daily Japanese Support Service
Our Conversation Lesson is only 60 minutes. We feel this is not a sufficient amount of time to focus on both your Japanese pronunciation and conversation abilities. You can message us anytime using our chat service. We will check your Japanese messages daily.
Ichiyo or other staff will check and correct your Japanese. We will reply to your message within 2 working days.
・Recorded Oral Japanese Review Service
Please send us a video or an audio recording of you speaking Japanese. From there we will check the recording you have sent us and work with you on your Japanese pronunciation. Not having both your Japanese pronunciation and grammar corrected early on can set you off on the wrong foot.

You can use Japanese when using our chat service.
Ichiyo or other staff will reply to your messages.
Please ask us any questions in Japanese. If you cannot understand our responses, please tell us.
