The Snow Monkey and Bee Way
Have you been preparing for a Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) for a long time, but feel frustrated that you still cannot understand Japanese TV programmes nor join in a conversation with Japanese people?
Do you find the direct teaching method(lessons taught only in Japanese) difficult?
Are you thinking that the exiting textbooks and resources a little too dull?
Have you tried various language apps to no avail?
Basically, do you feel like you have hit a brick wall?
Snow Monkey and Bee can help you.
Japanese is very different from English, reflecting the underlying culture. This is why translating between these languages doesn't quite work: most things get lost in translation.
We draw attention to cultural aspects, explaining accurately why and how certain words and phrases are used, and in what contexts.
Snow Monkey and Bee was created by Dr Nobumi Kobayashi through a bilingual/bicultural perspective
It takes account of common issues faced by English speakers.
Unlike conventional language teaching methods, it focuses on improving the listening and reading comprehension skills by taking account of differences between Japanese and English.
This will in turn nurture your ability to speak Japanese more naturally.
The commonsensical system helps you shave years off your learning curve.
