At Jaba, our instructor team is comprised of both native Japanese and non-native Japanese men and women who have all had some experience in either formally studying Japanese, or are working towards a post-secondary Japanese related degree. We select instructors based on several criteria, including teaching ability, professionalism, and their ability to inject their own personality and creativity into lessons.In each lesson, the instructor is there to guide our clients through understanding the lesson target language and provide support during practice activities. All of our instructors are trained to keep teacher talk time (TTT) low, but they are also there to challenge and motivate our clients to use what they have learned both in the lesson and their daily lives.

We welcome people of all nationalities and our current clients based is very international. We have clients for non-English speaking countries who attend our lessons, but they all have a high understanding of the English language. So, in general anyone is welcome to attend the lessons as all the lessons are conducted solely in Japanese, English is used to explain certain points for low level clients and some of our support materials have English translations. As long as the clients are comfortable with that, they are welcome.

Although each of our lessons has a set structure, there is a certain amount of flexibility to allow our instructors to be creative and to effectively meet the needs of each learner. We do our best to help reinforce target language points through homework assignments to accelerate your understanding.

Jaba was originally created for the benefit of Gaba instructors and staff, however over the years, we feel we have created a product that is as high, if not higher quality than other programs in the market. In order to join a Jaba course, you will be required to take a free demo lesson in order to make sure that you are placed in a course that best suits your level. One thing you may want to be aware of is that we adhere strictly to an 'Only Japanese' rule during the lesson time, as we believe this maximizes learning efficiency.

What each client takes away from a Jaba course will naturally depend on the individual and their personalized goals. However, we have developed several courses, ranging from a true beginner to an advanced level, so whether a client aims to simply read and write a few Japanese phrases, be comfortable ordering food and drinks in a restaurant, or to effectively participate in a discussion about social issues in Japan, we can customize the lessons to help you.

Jaba's approach to teaching is based on the idea that learners need to master the basics before getting into more advanced structures. This approach better enables our clients to gain an understanding of the language through reading, writing and listening, while at the same time, immediately giving them some phrases to put into practice outside of the classroom.Private lessons enable clients to be more specific in their learning requests and the way in which the lesson is conducted.Our aim is for Jaba to be a relaxed and enjoyable learning environment, with the focus on our clients' learning needs.
