ATLJapanese provides Atlanta-area residents with private & group Japanese lessons, translations, travel consultation, conversation practice, & other language services. I offer an adaptive curriculum for students with a wide variety of goals. Students study with me for the purposes of personal enrichment, travelling in Japan, reconnecting with Japanese family members, or simply because they have a fascination with Japanese culture. 

Japanese is a wonderful language that will enable you to explore one of the world's most beautiful countries, comprehend vast new amounts of media, and communicate with 130 million speakers worldwide. Its challenging nature will develop your cognitive abilities and provide a wonderful addition to any resume.
