Why study Japanese with Cafetalk?

Accredited & Experienced Tutors
On Cafetalk, you have hundreds of accredited and experienced tutors to choose from. Many have been teaching Japanese for years online and are officially certified as Japanese educators.
One-on-One Learning
Your tutor can assess your Japanese level, personal goals and learning history to create the perfect lesson plan for you. No more group lessons that are too advanced or too boring!
Affordable Lessons
Online lessons allow you to meet your tutor without the additional cost of travel and paying for a beverage in a Cafe. Thus, lessons are much more affordable!
Feedback from a Native
Self-learning only gets you so far, and you run the risk of adopting mistakes into your speech pattern. Feedback from a native allows you to improve your Japanese swiftly and correctly.
Personalized Guidance
As a Japanese company, customer service is one of the pillars of our core values. If you need help finding the right tutor or lesson, one of our trilingual staff members will personally get in touch with you to help you make the right choice.
Incredible Flexibility
Cafetalk has no monthly fees or entry fees. You simply buy points whenever you have the time to study, with the tutor or tutors of your choice. Additionally, points are valid for 5 months after purchase, leaving you ample time to use them up.

How do I go about requesting the right lesson?

At Cafetalk, we are committed to helping you receive the perfect Japanese learning experience.
Here are a few tips to get you started!

Find Lessons & Tutors with the Lesson/Tutor Search
The Lesson Search and Tutor Search allow you to apply specific filters to find the perfect Japanese tutor for you!
Book a Consultation/Level-Check Class first!
  1. If the tutor offers one, it can be useful to book a Counseling/Consultation/Level-Check class first. This will allow you to communicate your expectations to the tutor, and the tutor can assess your level and learning history. Don’t be shy to tell your tutor if you have specific ideas!
  2. If you have no idea where to start, tell your tutor that! Many tutors have lots of experience and can help you find the perfect place to start.
Use the Comment Section If You Need To
If need be, you can use the comment section on the booking page of your request to ask your tutor anything!
Have Your Skype Lesson
Meet your tutor on Skype and have your actual lesson! To assure a smooth flow, try to be online and available on Skype about 5 minutes before your lesson is scheduled.
Receive Your Feedback & Review Your Lesson
Your tutor will send you some feedback and notes after the lesson so you can review what you’ve learned! Then, you can book another lesson with your tutor or try out a new tutor!
