Best for conversational Japanese
Japan Switch is well known for providing flexible morning Japanese-language lessons in Tokyo. Their strong emphasis on speaking and conversational Japanese goes well with their motto, which is to help foreigners make the switch to learning Japanese.
If you are looking to use your Japanese in daily life, Japan Switch’s textbooks are very practical. They will help you improve your Japanese to the N3 level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT), which means you’ll be speaking at a conversational level.
What’s more, Japan Switch has no enrollment or hidden fees, and offers lots of flexibility with scheduling. You can easily change your class to private or group lessons—online or in-person—and schedule make-up classes depending on your schedule. This flexibility helps you to save anywhere from 30% to 60% on your Japanese lessons, compared to other schools.
