  • Masa's teaching style is very beginner-friendly, and encourages active participation during class. Over the course of eight lessons, the core concepts are regularly put into use and reinforced upon. The Language Exchange Club is also a very good way to practice the speaking and listening skills. (Michael Lau, Level 2 - Sept 21, 2017)
  • Level 1 presented an adequate challenge for someone who didn't know any Japanese prior to attending class. Each class brought new interactions and built upon each other in a smart and easy manner.

    The engagement aspect of being in class was appropriately utilized and enforced. It is, however, absolutely necessary to practice what is taught in each class, in order to see a significant improvement.

    Masa is a great teacher, in that, his patience is exemplary. He has no air of being rushed and does show concern and care for his students. (Evan Grinbergs, Level 1 - Sept 20, 2017)
  • Helpful class with explanations and practice you can't get online, or from textbooks. I would recommend it for anyone wanting to improve their skills. (Robin, Level 1 - Sept 20, 2017)
  • This class was quite challenging due to the immersion method, but I found it to be quite effective. I'd strongly recommend (in my opinion) that students practice at home for around four hours each week to really learn how to use the vocabulary, the hiragana alphabet and grammatical structures. This was fun and I hope to continue until I become fully conversational in Japanese! (Lashaun, Level 1 - Sept 20, 2017)
  • I really do feel the full immersion was a great benefit in keeping the right mindset for learning Japanese. I would recommend attending a Language Exchange and consuming Japanese multimedia to build and maintain (one's) progress. Finally, the size of the class was helpful in making each lesson feel more personal. Ultimately, I think Masa's (the teacher) personality ties the material together and helps (keep) me motivated. (Jason, Level 4 - Sept 30, 2017)

Kanji Class

  • I was really impressed with how much I have learned in this course. I'm only on level 2, but already I feel like I can have real meaningful conversations with people in Japanese. I think the pacing of the lesson is great! (Alex / Level 2) 
  • I really enjoyed the interactive nature of the class. It was joyful to learn because of the comradery between teacher and fellow students. Although at time consuming, the moment of "understanding" always was a pleasant surprise. Being able to actually follow Japanese conversation is an amazing feeling. (Sheri / Level 2) 
  • Having the opportunity to be fully immersed in Japanese is fantastic! Masa-san is a great teacher. I really appreciate having studied with him. I would recommend this class for anyone looking to further their study of Japanese and have a great immersive experience! ありがとうございます。(スティーヴ/ Level 4) 
  • Level 2 class is more challenging than level 1, but it is still very fun! The immersion environment is fantastic and provides many opportunities for learning and practice. (Andrea / Level 2) 
  • I do love my first immersion in Kanji. It was really easy to follow and memorize the Kanji symbols with the picture method, really easy way to learn. If you join the course I'm really sure you will not regret. I love it!!! (Raul) 

JLPT Preparation Class
(Japanese Language Proficiency Test)

  • The JLPT class was an intense class in an enjoyable environment.  I found that the prep class was not only good for those who are intending to take the exam but also a good refresher for my previous classes.  We had mocks exams which tested our vocabulary, grammar and kanji.  I especially liked the listening practice which I find quite challenging.  If you are contemplating on taking the JLPT, I would recommend taking the Aitas JLPT prep class.  You'll find homework and exams are actually fun. (Christina, JLPT Prep N5)
  • The pace of the class is very high, and you get to practice in real exam conditions, so that there is no surprise on the day of the exam. Also, I found it was an excellent way to review previous levels' grammar and vocabulary. After completing the class, I felt much more confidant I could make it. I'm really glad I opted for taking this class prior to the N5 exam, as I'm sure it helped greatly in achieving a pass grade. I definitely recommend this class to anyone serious about taking the JLPT exam. (Frederic, JLPT Prep N5)
  • It was very well structured and taught in a friendly and yet very professional manner. The Class helped me reduce the level of stress because i knew what to expect. Thanks to the tests that we took during the class, i could see where i was standing and thus my expectations were realistic - more or less. (Danielle, JLPT Prep N5)
  • The most helpful aspect of the class, for me, was that we practiced with actual past tests every week. It was very encouraging to see my marks on the practice tests slowly, but steadily, improve as the course progressed. The other extremely valuable component was the listening practice we did. For me, listening comprehension is the most challenging aspect of Japanese, so the confidence I gained by practicing with so many listening exams in class was invaluable. (Nicole, JLPT Prep N5)
  • The JLPT prep class was extremely helpful, chances are that i would of failed the test if i didn't take the prep course. Being able to practice previous exams and revisit grammars that i have either forgotten or haven't learned in the class helped filled a lot of the gaps. studying with classmates help too, i actually studied with some of them outside of the course (Alan, JLPT Prep N4).
