What Students Say

From our students learning Japanese at our school.

I remember my first class at Blue House! I was brand new to Okinawa and the Japanese language. I was able to have basic exchanges, and it made me so happy to practice with native speakers and have such a fun community to learn in. I’m two years into studying now and am so glad I found Blue House from the beginning — it introduced me to some of my favorite people in Okinawa and is such a special place ❤️

Ms. Sara Wray

I had spent about 8 months using online based methods to learn Japanese. Blue House gave me the opportunity to learn Japanese face-to-face with native Japanese speakers. The language exchanges forced me to step outside of my shell and speak among our Japanese peers, which was exactly what I needed to do to gain confidence to apply my classroom learning to the real world. Most importantly, it has been an incredibly fun experience to learn Japanese while helping others to learn English!

Mr. Tom Nelson

I recommend Blue House to anybody that wishes to learn Japanese. I learned that Japanese is difficult at Blue House. But students at Blue House are motivated to learn, Japanese people are kind and helpful.
Blue House is like a family where everyone is welcomed. I recommend Blue House to anybody that wishes to learn Japanese.

Mr. Garion Hallmon

"Blue House is my family"
I like Blue House a lot. It is very interesting and fun. I have made friends here. Monica sensei is kind and patient. My classmates are also kind.
Japanese is hard and I get shy when I talk in Japanese. But Blue House helps me learning.

Have you felt like...

Why Can't I Speak Japanese Yet?

One of the most common challenges reported to us is how much difficulty Japanese learners have in interacting in their target language.

For example, despite perhaps years of dedicated study in Japanese, many learners feel paralyzed and defeated in interactions with native Japanese speakers.

This challenge is largely due to the fact that language-learning is multifaceted.

Proficiency requires separate yet overlapping skills, such as reading, listening, writing, cultural awareness, speaking, pronunciation, etc.

Schools often emphasize grammar, reading and writing over other aspects.

Thus, learners become discouraged and feel as if they don’t know anything after years of study, when in fact they just haven’t had sufficient practice in a particular skill to make them a balanced learner.

At Blue House Okinawa, club members are given the opportunity to develop all areas of language to build towards proficiency.

We provide practical listening and speaking practice with both peer learners and native speakers.

Our goal is to build club members’ confidence and put their learning to use quickly and often.
Or do you feel like...

I'm nervous about speaking in Japanese....

We’ve seen learners struggling in Japanese conversation, as sometimes they’re unsure of how to say specific words or phrases.

This is a regular concern that is easy to overcome once you become a Club member of Blue House Okinawa.

You can prepare for conversational success by communicating in Japanese with native speakers in our club.

These tools are most valuable because you learn

1. It is ok to make mistakes and


2. How to correct those mistakes.


You will soon find you know more than you think you do!

The more you try and do, the better you will become.

Remember that for Japanese people, English is just as hard for them, as Japanese is for you.

They appreciate your attempts to converse in their language and will try to find a way to communicate with you.

Just keep trying and you’ll do great!
Those are the reason why we offer

More Speaking Practice

As we also have Japanese club members who learn English, we’re so fortunate to have this wonderful program, Zoom Language Exchange as a part of our curriculum.

In the Zoom Language Exchange, you can practice Japanese speaking with native Japanese speakers, the real Japanese people.

Here’s where the give-and-take of learning happens!

It’s student-driven and set up as a mutually-beneficial learning program.

In the Zoom Language Exchange, don’t wait for perfection to speak Japanese — start with what you can, even if it turns into charades, and let your native speaking peers guide you to accuracy!

Ask questions, share cultural insights, and provide feedback to each other while building your Japanese speaking confidence.

This Language Exchange program will let you be able to learn Japanese in a practical way and practice what you have learned right away.

You will meet some of our Japanese club members and make real connections with them to learn the Japanese culture and deepen your intercultural understanding.

It’s a fantastic way to bridge the gap between textbook learning and communicating in the real world!

Beyond Language-Learning

We pride ourselves in our focus on building the ability to learn and succeed beyond learning language. 


We seek to nurture independent, lifelong learning. 


Our goal is to get comfortable operating in Japanese in everyday, practical interactions.


Much of successful language learning is going beyond your comfort zone and just going for it!


As many native English speakers are coming from cultures that greatly contrast that of Japan’s, Blue House Okinawa Club provides ample opportunity to learn about the values, history, and influences in Japanese society.
