The Better Way to Learn: JOI's
Usually Japanese courses
follow a linked "chain" of classes, where
each lesson depends on the lessons that
came before it. To understand lesson 4,
for example, you need to take lessons 1,
2, and 3 first.
The old way doesn't work if you
miss a session.
That approach works if you are able to
attend every class, but what happens if
you miss a session?
Because the later lessons are tied so
closely to earlier ones, you canft easily
start and stop lessons, or take breaks
In contrast, each FlexLessons
class at JOI is a module, a stand-alone
unit of online Japanese learning that
doesnft depend on other modules.
Our unique curriculum system means you donft
have to follow a rigid course structure.
With JOIfs FlexLessons, take classes
at your pace, on your schedule.
Instead, you can take online
Japanese lessons when your schedule
permits, at the pace that meets your
style, and---the best part---in any order
There are no start dates or end dates for
FlexLessons classes at JOI.

our online Japanese class offerings here.
FlexLessons are our most
popular and affordable lesson choice. We
recommend all students even students who
opt for private Japanese lessons take
FlexLessons as well.
FlexLessons are small-group
classes, never more than 7 students. This
small size ensures a lively classroom
environment, but gives each student plenty
of individual attention from the teacher.
Plus, you can have three-way
conversations, class quizzes and just
plain fun learning Japanese online that
canft be created in a private lesson.
During your FlexLessons
class, take advantage of the time when
another student is interacting with the
teacher. Rather than wait for your turn,
create your own learning zone:
While another student
is answering a question, try to
answer the question yourself.
Challenge yourself to use the
Japanese grammar form or phrase
being introduced in the class. Did
the other student use a word you
didnft know ?
If a student is
reading a sentence from the
whiteboard, donft just
listen read it aloud
yourself! Afterward, when the
teacher repeats what was read,
compare your pronunciation and
pacing with the teacherfs. Read
the sentence to yourself until you
get through it without any
