Personal statement

I aim to meet each individual student’s learning needs, make learning Japanese fun, and help them experience the feeling of being able to express themselves in a foreign language. I personally have learned various foreign languages, experienced many different cultures living abroad. I have experienced language barriers, cultural differences, lifestyles adjustments, and the like. In order to provide my students with tools to help them express themselves – as well as learning about a different culture – I take language study very seriously. I want to support my students to help them learn Japanese while having fun in the process. I can also correspond in English.
