The Ezoe method to learn Japanese

The Ezoe method to learn Japanese

Shinjuku Japanese Language Institute in Tokyo uses an original teaching style―called the Ezoe Method. The Ezoe Method uses cards and gestures to help students easily and quickly learn Japanese grammar.

Ezoe Method has been used there since 1975 . This teaching method has proven to be effective in improving international students’ levels of understanding, speaking, reading and writing Japanese.


The Ezoe Method is mainly used to teach international students. It has now also used in Japan by other Schools, such as elementary schools or schools for deaf children.



Ezoe Method uses different cards. They represent various parts of speech (noun, verb, particle, etc.). Students are taught to order these cards like Lego an d form grammatically correct sentences. In addition to the cards, the Ezoe Method uses gestures to help remember verb conjugations.

Ezoe Method combines very well with technology. Shinjuku Japanese Language Institute teamed up with NTT Communications to create grammar and vocabulary apps for students. They practice Japanese wherever they are.

These apps, called VLJ (“Visual Learning Japanese”), allow students to search for any hiragana, katakana and kanji, look up speech and examples, watch videos related to the character and much more.

Students can also utilize a website that contains all the lessons from their classes in video format. They can watch what they’ve learned.

The Benefits of Taking An Online Study Course

The Benefits of Taking An Online Study Course

By Moaz Khan, Co-Founder & CMO at

Online learning courses are not new to the internet. In fact, businesses and marketing experts will tell you that the most successful sites on the internet are those that offer training and learning.

People desire to expand their knowledge of the world around them. This is one reason why YouTube videos are so popular. True, there are a number of ridiculous videos out there, but the self-help learning channels see the most traffic. However, there are instances where the simple searching and videos do not do justice to the level in which one wants to learn. This is where eLearning comes into play.

The top reasons why an online study course is beneficial to you:

ELearning, Nanolearning, Microlearning and self-study online courses, all go a step beyond the free advice, to offer quality content. Here are just a few ways in which the online study course can benefit you.

  1. You can learn at your own pace for a fraction of the cost:

Colleges and higher learning are excellent institutions which everyone should at least consider. However, the reality of the situation is that not everyone does well in a school setting. Schedules, other students, and age differences can cause a person to feel a little out of place at a physical location. Yet, with an online course, the person is free to take the course in his or her own time and at his or her own pace. There is no pressure to meet a specific group’s expectations or to fit into the crowd. You can even train at your desk or in your pajamas, if you so desire.

The Benefits of Taking An Online Study Course

In addition to the ability to learn at your own pace and in a method that makes you most comfortable, there is the financial burden which is minimized with taking an online course. Where any course worth its merit will have an associated cost, this will be far less than the cost per credit hour which is associated with college courses.

  1. You can repeat a lesson:

When I was in college, one of my biggest frustrations was that the content that I was learning was not often repeated. If I was not quick enough to write down the information in my notes and then study that information until it was concreted in my brain, the information was lost. With online learning, especially in online language courses, you can repeat a lesson until you understand the content. This is an empowerment means of teaching rather than a commerce way of approaching learning. Think about it. When you take a formal course if you do not get the information you have to pay and take the course a second or third time. However, if you pay for a course online you generally get the option of reviewing the material again, downloading PDFs and supporting content, as well as customer support for questions. As it has been suggested that the normal person needs to have content repeated up to 7 times for it to be locked into the memory, it is best to have the ability to repeat a lesson when at all possible.

  1. Personal growth and professional desirability:

Taking an online course takes a level of self-discipline and motivation. When you complete a course, you will have a sense of accomplishment and self-growth knowing that you had the ability to complete the task on your own. If you are taking a language course you will be able to communicate with friends, pen pals, potential clients, and extended family better. Finishing something that you put your mind and your time to gives you a great sense of self-confidence and self-worth. A person that believes that they have accomplished something meaningful believes that their life has meaning. A meaningful mindset is one of the keys to a happy and long life.

Professional development courses will make you an asset to a potential employer as well as show the employer that you can take initiative to develop your own personal growth and professionalism. Remember, employees are looking for hires that they do not have to train, so the more professional development skills that you have, such as leadership and team management, the less they have to spend on corporate training and the more desirable your application will become.
