About The Lesson / Texbook
Using the textbook "Genki I" (Second Edition, available on Amazon!) as a base, we'll move through the fundamentals of Japanese in a comprehensive way. This book was selected for these lessons because it's readily available, used by many high schools and universities, and because it has worked for me! The Genki series offers additional apps and flash cards if you'd like to supplement these lessons with self-study. I'm also happy to incorporate the things you like (movies, music, anime, etc.) into the lessons!

This comprehensive approach involves speaking, listening, reading, writing, pronunciation, context, and more!

This book also features "Culture Notes," so you can study more than just the language.

The textbook is available on Amazon

About Me:
I've been living in Japan for almost a decade, and understand what it's like to learn the ins and outs of Japanese! Outside of Cafetalk, I work as a translator and voice-actor/narrator. I'd be happy to give you tips and recommendations that are suited to your Japan goals. Please feel free to ask me anything. 


These lessons are customized to your level and goals! Please let me know if there's anything in particular that you'd like to study. Whether you're attacking the Japanese Language Proficiency Test, enjoying Japanese-related activities in your free time, planning to visit Japan, etc., this lesson is just for you!

Although it's helpful, you don't need it for a trial lesson or your first lesson. Please note that the textbook is absolutely necessary for regular lessons. Please let me know ahead of time if you don't have it! :)

I look forward to talking with you!
