Personal statement

“In my opinion, your goal in Japanese class should be self-expression.  You should acquire skills to convey what you want to convey.  I always try to use *REAL* Japanese in my classes that you would find in everyday life – so that outside of the classroom you can fully express yourself.

I also understand that people from different cultural backgrounds communicate in different ways, so I enjoy sharing cultural tips”
