Providing professional Japanese Language and Culture Lessons to Students in St. John's and Worldwide
I've been studying Japanese for five years, but all the time I've invested has given me a much stronger grasp of reading, writing, speaking and understanding of the Japanese language as a whole than when I first began. More than that, I'm thankful to have a dedicated teacher to help me through all of it, and to teach me more than just the language; I've learned a great deal about Japanese history, etiquette, and culture in the process. I look forward to learning even more in the next five years from now.
"Learning Japanese has always been a goal of mine, and being from a small province, I did not think there was an opportunity to learn from a teacher via private lessons. I’m so thrilled that I was able to connect with Name-san and begin learning from her! She takes the time to get to know you as a student and will cater your lessons for exactly what you need. Japanese can feel complex, but Nami-San is so patient and helpful and explains things so clearly. Her passion, energy and devotion are inspiring to me and it makes me want to be a more dedicated student and commit my time and effort to learn this beautiful language. I love how she challenges me to be better with my speaking abilities and always believes I can do my best!
Her private lessons, along with the free extra practice you can receive from her youtube channel, have made me more confident in my understanding of Japanese. Knowing that I can practice throughout the week via youtube makes me feel more prepared for my weekly lessons, and it is a fun and interactive way to further your learning. This is just another example of how dedicated Nami-san is to going above and beyond for her students!
If you want to learn Japanese, taking lessons with Ohara Consulting is the best way to start!
When I found out that I was accepted into the JET Programme, I knew that I wanted to improve my Japanese before I moved to Japan. My lessons with Nami were so helpful and so much fun! Not only did I learn about the language, but I really enjoyed how Nami incorporated teaching parts of the Japanese culture in my lessons, too. Nami tailored my lessons for me, making it a very comfortable and enjoyable way to learn Japanese!
I have been taking Japanese lessons from Nami Ohara for 5 years, and each lesson is enjoyable and interesting. The learning environment is excellent, as she takes every conversation as an opportunity to teach Japanese. She also doesn’t just teach the language, she also teaches about the culture of Japan, which is very useful for someone like me who wants to move there someday. She cares a lot about her students, and tailors her lessons to the learner. She uses little monikers and phrases that have really helped me memorize vocabulary that I otherwise would have found daunting to learn. Nami is an excellent Japanese teacher that I would enthusiastically recommend to anyone looking to learn the language.
"Nami Ohara’s Youtube content is full of creative, entertaining, and educational videos. They provide a wonderful sense of immersion when learning about Japanese language and culture. On top of this, she provides helpful interactions through comments, allowing students to practice their skills by engaging in questions and conversations. 皆さん、頑張りましょう！"
I enjoy watching Nami Ohara’s videos to learn more about the Japanese language and culture outside of class. Commenting on them allows me to check my comprehension, practice writing and improve my language skills in a fun, relaxed way. I appreciate her helpful feedback and encouragement.
Anyone who's learning a language knows that daily practice is key, and that's why I think Nami's YouTube channel serves as a great supplement to her weekly classes. I love practicing new grammar in the comments section because it allows for rapid feedback and guidance on any errors outside of our regular lesson time. The variety of content she produces also helps keep things interesting.

Thank you for suggesting we use the video comments as a place to practice writing Japanese! Not only is it great practice without worrying too much about mistakes, but it's also really fun to add a bit of creativity to studying. 😊 The more I practice making sentences, the more natural the words feel and the easier it is to express myself in Japanese. As always, ありがとうございます！💜
