Japanese and me go way back, I've been obsessed with Japanese since I was 14 years old.
Since then, I've interpreted, translated, lived in Japan, and helped over 2,000+ people learn Japanese. I’ve been teaching the language for over 10 years now, and I can safely say that watching students get excited over their progress never gets old.
It’s my greatest passion, and yep, you guessed it — it’s my greatest goal to help people learn it, too.
Then you've landed in the right place.
When I started learning Japanese, it was dry, difficult & textbooky (not a word, but a very real thing).
Fast forward 10 years and now it’s a confusing mess of apps & free resources that don’t encourage actual results. Hands up everyone who's tried to learn Japanese, downloaded Duolingo and had a very intense week long fling, never to open the app again?
For years, I thought... why is it so hard? Why is there no in between and why is there a total lack of resources for people that actually want to learn? You can do a course about knitting! From your phone, with beautiful videos and instructional resources. So why the heck does this not exist for Japanese? This drove me mad enough to spend a year and a half building it myself.
I’ve thrown my heart & soul into this course. After years of teaching & interpreting, I’ve put everything I know into these pages. And I couldn't be more excited to share it with the world.
Because you really don’t need a million resources, countless textbooks, a phone full of apps and constant overwhelm.
You totally can learn Japanese in a structured way with zero burnout.
Here’s what I promise: 15 minute lessons, 5 times a week, for 12 weeks. Simple, straight forward lessons with no fluff or complicated grammar explanations. Support, guidance & all of the pieces of the puzzle that actually make sense. Results guaranteed.
...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!"
