A personal guide in your Japanese learning journey

As with any journey, having a guide to show you the way can make the difference between finding the right path or getting lost. The path to learn Japanese is no different.

At Live Lingua your class coordinators will match you with the perfect teacher - your "language learning guide". You will get the undivided attention of a certified Japanese tutor and the same level of interaction you'd have by being in the room with them.

You will learn everything about the language and be able to ask them about their culture. This will bring your Japanese lessons to life.

A personal Japanese guide in your journey to another culture

"This is a top-notch Japanese language tutoring service. If you want to learn Japanese from a native speaking teacher then you have come to the right place." Erkan K.

"Life is about learning new things and having new experiences, and learning a new language is one of those things. I was stationed in Japan when I was in the army and started learning there, but when I got home to the US I could not find any way of continuing until a few months ago I saw a commercial for Live Lingua. I have class twice a week and can feel my Japanese returning." Adam L.

"Ohayo. I love my Japenese lessons on Skype. I have always wanted to live in Japan and am worried that when that happens I won't be able to speak. Not anymore. My Japanese teacher is great and I am sure that in by the time I arrive in Japan I will be fluent!" Aliya M.

The  Japanese immersion experience

Like learning in a Japanese-speaking country

Japanese lessons

If you don't live in a Japanese-speaking country, you probably know how hard it can be to get to the point where you can speak the language naturally. Especially if you're new to it.

Maybe you know Japanese vocabulary, and you just can't seem to piece it together without the translator on your phone.

You may even use a book or online digital course to try to learn. You feel great about your Japanese, then you go out in the local community, only to realize that that you are unable to speak or understand it in the real world.

Our mission is for you to experience what it's like to immerse yourself in the Japanese language. Not only during your lessons, but in your day-to-day. Keeping you engaged and consistently refreshing what you learn, with additional reading resources and audio courses.

Founders - Laura & Ray

Learning a language brings people together

About us

Laura was a certified language teacher from Mexico, and Ray was a volunteer for the Peace Corps from the US.

They co-founded Live Lingua from a first-hand experience of how much language brings people together.

What today is Live Lingua, started as a brick & mortar language school that they started after getting married in 2008. Our students were naturally immersed in the language and culture, every single day. Now, we've redesigned it as a school online, so we're able to bring the language immersion experience to you.
