I was 14 years old when I first visited Japan, fell in love, and decided that I wanted to do this for the rest of my life.
Since then, I've interpreted, translated, lived in Japan, and helped over 2,000 people learn Japanese. My greatest passion in life is Japanese, and my biggest goal is to make learning easy for others.
For a long time, I've heard the same thing as people stepped into my classroom. Learning Japanese is incredibly confusing – there are plenty of apps, with random words and confusing Kanji. Language schools are expensive with restrictive timetables. Do you start with vocabulary? How do you know if you're pronouncing it right? Where do you even begin?
So, I decided to make it easy. Learning the Japanese language needs to be individualised, it needs to be practical, flexible, and most of all it needs to be enjoyable. And that's where Japanese in 12 comes in.
Have you wanted to learn Japanese for a while now? Have you flirted with apps, visited expensive and restrictive language schools? (Where you don't know who, or what you're signing up for?) or have you tried reading a dusty textbook with no desire to continue?
Japanese in 12 cuts through the madness of millions of different resources, and hands you a well-crafted, coherent and thoughtful curriculum that you’ll actually remember. Not to mention one-on-one support and help, a library of cohesive resources and worksheets, and access to a community of students with weekly challenges and conversation practice. What more could you need?
Learning a language is all about communication, and it’s an area we’re really big on. We post weekly bonus challenges and you’ll be added to a dedicated community group so you can chat with your new classmates/potential BFFs.
I’ll take you through the lessons step by step, meaning that you have multiple opportunities to learn. Read the chapter, watch a video, and complete a quiz for every module. 5 modules each week makes for seamless integration into your busy schedule.
Each intake is capped at 30 people, so you’ll always receive the attention and support that you need to thrive in the course. We keep numbers limited in order to ensure personalised attention and 24/7 support.
...while also being a bit on guard since I've taken plenty of lessons online that promoted false benefits, but I managed and I must say that J12 positively exceeded my expectations in every aspect. I've always wanted to speak and understand Japanese properly, and I feel like this course helped me get a dozen steps closer to my goals. The structure and the materials were thorough and just the right amount of challenging. And while I was 100% serious in my learning, I also got to have a lot of fun and laughs watching the videos and interacting with Aimee and the other students. Also, the gradual build-up of the complexity was perfect because I never felt like I was underprepared for the next lesson. So thankfully, unlike in Aimee's experience, I never felt like crying over Kanji or over grammar, and I woke up every Saturday looking forward to getting access to a brand new week of content."
...and no I'm not being dramatic! I could go on for hours about how perfect the structure and content that Aimee provides is but I'd literally be here all day. Instead, I want to focus on how her course has changed my overall outlook on language learning! I used to think I had to sit for hours revising grammar and doing vocab flashcards in order to learn a language. This course has proved me wrong. Aimee is a huge inspiration for me and she has truly made the best language course for anyone who thinks they don't have time... she'll prove you wrong!"
Aimee is so kind and bubbly, you can’t not love her. The course is so straight forward and easy to follow. I would’ve never thought I’d be able to study an entire new language from home, with no help right then and there, but here I am, happier than ever that I really did that. I’m going to continue with Aimee until I’m fluent, and that should be enough proof in itself how amazing this journey was for me."
I started off learning what I could through apps, and using a textbook that was recommended to me by a friend. I felt like I was doing pretty well until I got to verb conjugation in the textbook, then I felt lost in the sauce. I found Aimee through @lisainjapan on Instagram, and reached out to see what her thoughts were. We had similar experiences with learning Japanese before Aimee, and after messaging with her I was convinced I should give it a go. I am SO glad I did! I learned so much in just 3 months and it has already made a huge difference. Now that I've learned as much as I have, I am excited to take that knowledge and use it in my day-to-day life here in Japan and really get comfortable speaking with others. The modules are easy to digest and the course is perfect for those with busy schedules. I would 1000% recommend this course to any and everyone who is looking to improve their Japanese.
Before her course, I was so intimidated and overwhelmed by learning Japanese. This course changed the way I study and I am having so much more success after her course. I can't believe all the kanji, grammar, and vocabulary I have learned in the past 12 weeks. She is really friendly and funny and encouraging, too. I can't wait for the next course!"
Japanese in 12 is everything you need to speak, read, write natural Japanese, faster than you ever imagined.
It's the fully inclusive course that has everything you need. You'll be guided every step of the way, with carefully crafted resources and videos, plus a community of people to help keep you accountable every day.
12 weeks from now, you'll be thanking yourself for making the jump.
