I’ve had over 30 classes with Shoya and I genuinely look forward to each one. I like to book hour sessions because the time goes so fast!! Such a great teacher and all round good person! 10/10 recommend his classes if you’re looking to improve your Japanese! You won’t regret it! I certainly haven’t. いつも教えてくれてありがとうございます♪

今日の授業ありがとうございます。また日本語で色んな話題について喋ることができたのは良かった。「民主主義」や「独裁」や「砦」など珍しく使われるが大切な単語が習えたのは本当に良かった。次の授業は一緒にニュースを読むつもりということは楽しみだ! I highly recommend taking lessons with Shoya. In my case I already can speak Japanese at intermediate level, so it's very important to me to finally break away from grammar guidebooks and Anki decks and start using natural Japanese. If this sounds like you, don't hesitate to take lessons with Shoya, he's very easy to talk to and always ready to rephrase anything you don't understand into simpler terms, or provide better ways of saying what you want to say. Along with teaching you new vocabulary that is actually used in real life Japanese. This is invaluable for becoming more confident about speaking Japanese.

Today I had my “Sightseeing Lesson in Osaka” with Shoya 🚅 This lesson is definitely worth the price 🉐 You can visit anywhere in Osaka without actually buying the airplane ticket ✈️ Today we visited Hirooka Jinja ⛩️ Shoya taught me Japanese words as we walked around in the Jinja👬🏻 We had also taken some nice photo together 📸 I highly recommend everyone to try the "Sightseeing Lesson in Osaka" with Shoya if you are interested in Osaka💖

Though the iTalki room connection was bad due to something going wrong with the plateform it seemed, we were still able to have a fantastic lesson via google hangouts, though I try to usually use the iTalki for ease. I am glad to have Shoya as a tutor, not only is he flexible, but he is such an amazing and helpful tutor. :-)

I love the lessons with Shoya! He gives great advice on how to sound more natural. He's open to talk about whatever I want to talk about and conversation never gets awkward. Sometimes I forget words but Shoya is always patient and if I ask for help, he kindly guides me. I'd highly recommend Shoya to anyone who's interested in leveling up their Japanese and sounding more natural.
