Introduction of Daiwa's eLearning Japanese Program

Foreigners who have learned Japanese using the book "IRODORI: Japanese for Life in Japan" acquire the needed fundamental communication skill in Japanese. The book has been shown to be useful in one's livelihood and work in Japan.

Learning style and level of proficiency vary from person to person.

The following program is taught through the format of instructional videos, giving the learner the capability to repeat and watch the videos until he or she understands the lesson. With this function, one's proficiency rate becomes higher per viewing.

Having the function of pausing, playing, and repeating each video, the learner's burdens are reduced so we recommend that you do not stop watching each lesson until you understand what is being taught, as the program is set to match the learner's level of proficiency.

Unlike face-to-face classes, you do not need to worry about other people, since you will have the freedom to learn at the pace you wish to study.

Each lesson will be an hour long, but we recommend that you watch each lesson at least three times. Since the speed of the video can be changed, we also recommend that you adjust the video speed that matches your understanding of the lesson.

Practice kanji characters, vocabulary, grammar, and the like through texts and materials, and learn 'Speaking', 'Listening', 'Reading', and 'Writing' in a well-balanced manner.

Having spent approximately 4 to 5 hours for each lesson on every video material, we expect that you will be learning for 400 hours.

Through the repeated watching of each lesson in these programs, a Japanese learner can learn correct Japanese anytime, anywhere, and for an unlimited number of times.
