15 minute lessons, 5 times a week, for 12 weeks. 

You'll be reading, writing, listening and speaking natural Japanese from day one, and building confidence in no time!

By the end of the 12 weeks you'll be reading and writing Hiragana, Katakana and hundreds (yes, hundreds!) of Kanji, not to mention being able to hold a real-life conversation in both casual and polite language as you please. In 12 weeks, a whole other world will unfold in front of you, so what are you waiting for!?

For every level of Japanese learner

I know it's daunting, but don't worry, I got you! We'll go through all of the basics, starting with Hiragana and Katakana. Japanese can become complicated with all of the particles, the grammar, and the politeness of speech, but I'll lay it down as simple as possible. In 12 weeks you'll be glad that you started the journey here!

You're ready for the challenge that is learning Japanese!

Beginners

Ready to go!

Let's level up!

You've got a headstart on the Beginners course, but you're not quite up to Intermediate yet. Probably friendly with the Duolingo Owl, but feeling a bit attacked by their notifications? This one's got less explanation, and more repetition and practice. Oh, and full-on Kanji use. But nothing to be worried about, I know you got this!

You already know your Hiragana and Katakana, so let's get crackin' into the Kanji!

Accelerated Beginners

Boost me up!

I know this ain't your first rodeo so the main focus in this course will be vocabulary and grammar. Japanese grammar can get really tricky, but hang in there! Once you have that all down pat, you're on your way to true fluency! By the end of this course you'll be able to create longer sentences, express yourself more freely, and feel more confident in your speech. We'll dive into tricky grammar, naturalistic Japanese, and tonnes of conversation.



Follow me, I'm taking you on a deep-dive into the Japanese language!

Intermediate

Become a master!

And now you're looking for a course that's going to take you to the next level. You're looking for a course that can meet you at your current level, and then teach you the grammar and vocabulary for the next, in a structured, simple way. In the advanced courses (advanced 1 and 2), we take a deep dive into complex grammar and natural Japanese language. We also cover keigo (honorific language) used in business and formal settings. Advanced courses are equivalent to the JLPT N3 & N2.

So you've previously studied Japanese, lived in Japan, or finished the first few courses...

Advanced

...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."

"I had high expectations going into the course...

Marijose, Accelerated beginners student

...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!"

"Japanese in 12 has truly been a life-changing experience for me...

Nikia (@studylang)

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 can’t recommend Japanese with Aimee more...

Sade, Beginners student

 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 another Instagram user (@lisainjapan), and reached out to that user to see what her thoughts were. We had similar experiences with learning Japanese before Aimee, and after messaging with her about her thoughts on the course 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. Aimee, thank you so much for all of your guidance! I would 1000% recommend this course to any and everyone who is looking to improve their Japanese.

"I moved to Japan about a year ago and knew basically no Japanese...

Katelyn, Accelerated beginners student

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!"

"Aimee Sensei is an incredible teacher!...

Erin, Accelerated beginners student

Japanese is kind of like my first love story, ever since I visited Japan when I was 14. Since then, I've had my fair share of nights crying into textbooks, going through stacks of flashcards for what seemed like days on end, and watching video after video on language learning tips, and still feeling like I was moving ahead at snail speed. 

Japanese in 12 has been developed from my experience as a student, my years in the classroom teaching, and my adventures as an interpreter. I'm actually pretty proud of it, and can't wait to show you. 

I was once standing at the starting line too, looking towards what seemed like an unattainable goal.
