About JLMI


Practice With Purpose

We provide classes, workshops, lectures and interactive content concerning all aspects of using Japanese in everyday life. Our content is fresh, modern and based on current media and actual life experience in Japan.

Our goal is not for you to become a perfect, near-native speaker, but to become an able, independent and well-rounded participant in Japanese culture.
