As of November 2023, I have shifted to a minimal teaching schedule of one day a week (Thursdays, 10-5pm). I currently have limited space for Study Support. Please get in touch if you'd be interested. I can accommodate both one-off bookings and regular sessions.

Please be aware that I typically only pick up email and social media messages on Thursdays. If you need to get in touch more urgently, please do so over text or WhatsApp (WhatsApp is preferred) at +44 (0)7955 636 565 and I will get back to you ASAP.

Note: a small number of events (e.g. the Japanese Book Club) may still make take place on other days. Subscribe to my newsletter for updates.

Book a Free Consultation

Find Out More About Japanese Lessons with Ippo Ippo

If you are interested in studying with Ippo Ippo Japanese, why not take advantange of a free consultation?

Consultations are 'getting-to-know-you' sessions which give you to find out more about learning with Ippo Ippo Japanese's Elly Darrah. You can expect:

  • 30 minutes totally free of charge
  • Plenty of chances to ask questions
  • The opportunity to sample learning materials and discuss your learning aims and options
  • No commitment to signing up for lessons

How to Book

If you would like to book a consultation, please get in touch to request a call within my teaching hours.

Please Note

Free consultations are a one-time-only offer. You cannot book multiple sessions.


Do I Need to Prepare Anything?

The quick answer to this is not really - feel free to come as you are. However, to help you get the most out of your consultation, I suggest:

  • Making a note of any questions you have
  • Having a note of any study materials you have used in the past
  • Thinking about your learning aims and what you would like to get out of lessons
  • Considering if there are any support needs (e.g. dyslexia, ADHD, autism) you would like to let me know about

Will We Speak Japanese?

If you already speak some Japanese, this is a great opportunity to break the ice and give me the chance to get an idea of your level. That said, if you're feeling a bit nervous or are just having an off day, it's not compulsory by any means.

What Happens Afterwards?

If at the end of our consultation you are happy to proceed, we can go straight ahead and schedule lessons. You are also more than welcome to book an initial trial lesson without doing a consultation at all.

As my availability tends to fill up quite quickly, I may give a deadline by which you will need to let me know whether or not you'd like to go ahead with lessons.
