What's the system?Once a teacher has signed up and been accepted (you must be in Japan), you will be sent log-in details for maintaining and updating your profile.

Students search for teachers by language and location and generally select five teachers details at a time. Students then get the teachers contact details from 121sensei.com (phone number and Email address) and they can then contact the teachers directly to arrange a meeting. [More]
