Chika sensei’s Academy
Let’s take the first step and start speaking Japanese with Chika-sensei!
“What’s Chika sensei’s Academy?”
Chika-sensei’s academy is a place where Japanese learners who studies hard can use what they have learned in an enjoyable way to communicate and interact within the online community.
It is quite difficult to be able to speak Japanese fluently by just studying at your desk. The first thing we need to practise is to have the output of it. It’s also common that many people don’t have an environment to use Japanese in their daily lives.
That’s where Chika-sensei’s Academy comes in. In the academy, you will not only be having practise exercises on phrases and expressions used in conversation, the members of this community will also be provided “A place for Japanese output”.
Will you take that first step to practise Japanese language together at Chika-sensei’s Academy?

I am Chika-sensei, the organiser of Chika-sensei’s Academy.
I find it “enjoyable” as the language advances by the day.
That moment when you are able to catch the vocabularies which you have just learned on the Japanese dramas;
or the time when you were able to use the Japanese expressions which you remembered to your Japanese friends and they understood it, those are the happiest moments isn’t it?!
It is because of moments like that, we are able to enjoy learning Japanese, and because we enjoy it, we are able to continuously study Japanese. Everything starts with daily progressing.
At Chika-sensei’s Academy, we bear the approach of “Anyway, I need an output for my Japanese”, “I want to enjoy using Japanese”.
Regardless of the level you are at, it can serve to be a meaningful place for everyone. Instead of being afraid to make mistakes, let’s enjoy from those mistakes and improve from there on.
