“As an Artificial Intelligence (AI) learner, I was interested to shift to Japan after the studies. Initially I struggled to learn Japanese through various textbooks, YouTube and friends. Even failed in attempt for Japanese Learning Proficiency Test (JLPT) N5. Later our relative suggested enrolling in the SonaJapan Language Academy, I quickly enrolled myself and it was a wise decision that helped me to pursue my dream. Currently I am living in Japan and passed JLPT N2 exam successfully.”

Ms. Sonal still guides us whenever require that’s differentiates her from others.”

All lectures were on time and I could ask doubts during live sessions, even received post session recording facility from them for revision, which proved helpful for preparation. I strongly recommend them for best Japanese learning experience.”

I would like to thank all of our SJLA teachers for such supportive work throughout the N3 course. I’m glad that I found such Japanese language course which doesn’t overlap with my working hours. Also there was 6 sessions a week which kept me motivated to continuously improve my Japanese level. Even on busy days only by attending the study session made me feel accomplished. Everyone in the study group was friendly and helpful. I’m thankful to all of our Sensei for appreciating on our success and even during mistakes. The way of explaining within the limited time is appreciable.
Lastly I pray that we may succeed in the upcoming N3 exam and make everyone’s efforts fruitful.
