Has anyone tried Nihongo Life/Nihongo no kai?

Self explanatory really, I’ve seen these guys around mostly with insta ads and was wondering if anyone has tried their paid services and what your experience was like.


They boast about having 1800+ students in a community but their forums seem dead unless non-users can’t see posts. :face_with_monocle:

If I’ve missed where this has been discussed my bad, feel free to let me know. Thanks!


I have been using nihongo life since March and really enjoy it:)

Is the forum community as dead as it looks? Have you tried their discord server?

Sorry it took me so long to reply I took the jlpt last weekend :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:but I’ve been a nihongo life patreon since March and honestly I like it. Everyday we have a writing and a video topic we have to do on Discord and then there’s also opportunitys for you to participate in conversation sessions​:grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:.

Admittedly I rarely use the website only because the stuff on there is more for beginners. I use the Discord everyday.

wow, I hope you get your results soon! best of luck :star_struck:

thanks for coming back to me - just out of curiosity, roughly how many people are on the discord?
I’m trying to find a good active community to test my learning with, and the server I’m using at the moment mostly seems to be people arguing about english with each other :sweat_smile:

Whats the pricing of this ?

Free vs Pro breakdown

Looks like they have some options available for free, others are paid

I use the Discord and it is quite Lively but I would say if you don’t have a solid study plan it would be a good fit for you maybe:) I also pay for the teir that comes with five 30-minute talking sessions a month with the teacher and 3 other people studying Japanese he’s very nice and if you think about it that’s like the price you would pay for 1 o 2 iTaki sessions so I think it’s worth it.

and thank you for wishing me good luck:) also yet again I’m sorry for replying so late I don’t check the wanikani messages often. I will try to keep an eye out this week in case you reply again👍
