Who Are We?

We are Mandy and Ritomo Amamiya, a Japanese-Canadian Husband and Wife team. 

Small Street in Japan

Our Program

We ensure a full language-learning experience at your own pace. Lessons will be assigned to you that you can access throughout the week to practice your reading, writing, grammar, and vocabulary skills. Then, in our weekly one-to-one meetings, we will focus purely on speaking, listening, and conversation skills.

Our focus is on modern functional Japanese. We want you to sound like a pro, not a textbook.

"Can't Recommend them Enough"

"My daughter absolutely loves taking these Classes"

Mandy and Ritomo were my instructors for 1.5 years and I can't recommend them enough. They make Japanese learning fun and accessible, catering to the learner's needs. They are vey knowledgeable and complement each other perfectly! マンディ先生、りとも先生、どうもありがとうございます。

We love Pon Pon Japanese school. The lessons are very well priced, the instructors are personable, and the content is relevant! My daughter absolutely loves taking these classes, even though she is quite shy. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone wishing to learn Japanese.

"First-Class Teachers"

My wife and I have been taking Japanese lessons with Mandy and Ritomo for a year and a half. In that time, we have made great strides in our goal of becoming conversant in Japanese.

Mandy's linguistic and pedagogical expertise -- combined with her hard-earned understanding of the struggles faced by a native English speaker learning the Japanese language -- make her a first-class teacher.
