Learning Japanese

The Snow Monkey and Bee Way

Have you been working towards the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) for many years, but you still cannot understand Japanese TV programmes nor join in a conversation with Japanese people?

Have you tried various language apps to no avail?

Are you constantly in search of that magic solution, only to be disappointed? 

Basically, do you feel like you have hit a brick wall?

Why do you accept one-size-fits all approaches? 

Japanese is very different from English, reflecting the underlying culture. This is why Japanese seems difficult for English speakers. 

Translating between these languages doesn't quite work: most things get lost in translation.

You need to pay attention to why and how certain words and phrases are used and in what contexts.

Did you know that conventional teaching/learning methods don't help you become fluent in the language?  

They focus on making the process of learning simple and easy by breaking down the language into easily digestible forms.

Most language learning apps only make you lazy by doing the work that your brain should be doing. 

Conventional methods use grammar-points-driven language, which is often artificial and different from everyday Japanese.

The Snow Monkey and Bee way helps you shave years off your learning curve. 

Snow Monkey and Bee offer a holistic approach by concentrating on real Japanese.


We focus on helping you improve your listening and reading skills by using authentic materials. 

This will in turn nurture your ability to speak Japanese more naturally.

The Snow Monkey and Bee way is designed to help you train your brain to look at the language as the Japanese do.
