Tailored Learning Plans

From Kids to Seniors, we create a learning plan that best suits your needs, pace, and goals. At SORA, we highly value the art of human communication in Japanese that are often excluded from proficiency exams / other traditional language schools. Thus, we continue to support students of over 10 years that wish to master the language fluency beyond their initial goals.

Designated Instructors

Our primary mission is to provide the best learning experience for each and every student. By having one designated instructor that truly understands your skills, goals, and learning styles, we aim to make your learning journey as efficient, convenient, and effective as possible.

Language Through Culture

We strongly believe that Japanese is best acquired through the cultural context and background of Japanese traditions. On top of the textbook concepts, we dive deeper into the fascinating culture of Japan which will give you a more thorough understanding of the context in which you use the language.


If you have any questions, concerns, or general inquiries about our Japanese lessons, please don't hesitate to reach out via the contact form. We look forward to chatting with you!
