"New language is more than just a tool, it is a philosophy, a new way of looking at ordinary things ”

We are SE-Japan!

A team of active Japanese language learners, native Japanese speakers and professional educators based in Tokyo, that’s who we are!

Aomi Japanese is our first app designed for those who are already learning Japanese and want to practice speaking skills to sound natural and comprehensible.

Our ultimate goal is to provide Japanese language learners with modern, easy-to-use and beautifully designed tools to improve their process of studying Japanese language .

Our approach

Knowing all the struggles of acquiring new language, we carefully select and produce a unique, easily digestible content, which is truly useful. 

We develop our products primarily focusing on training Japanese speaking skills since communication is at the core of any language learning process. And it is the most necessary skill when communicating in foreign language.

Whether it be a new grammar or vocabulary, we make sure it can be applicable to real lifeand can be used right away in both formal and informal conversation.

We are not here to replace teachers or textbooks. Different situations and different goals of language learning require different methods and these methods are not interchangeable. We believe student should always have a choice from a wide range of learning options. And our goal is to give one more good option - the opportunity to train Japanese speaking skills anywhere, anytime.
