Japanese, the Way You Need It

"With Kisako, you get a trained teacher who probably knows what your question is before you ask it, and who will remember from week to week what you know and what you don't. They'll drill you hard, too. After a Kisako lesson, my brain is always tired out. But that's how you know that you actually learned something."
Keith Finch
"Kisako doesn't do language instruction, they do language training. I highly recommend their interactive approach to anyone who wants to learn to speak natural, understandable Japanese."
Marc Ostrowski
Manager, AT&T Japan
"I am pleased that Kisako makes use of the learning program co-authored by Eleanor Jorden and myself, which relies on systematic learning aids, highly trained instructors and sound pedagogical principles."
