Hello! I'm Chiyoko, and I live with my husband and my pretty cat in Hiroshima. I have been interested in foreign cultures since I was a little girl. I wanted to study abroad, but it was very expensive to go abroad at that time. I am now able to travel abroad. I enjoy seeing other countries, experiencing different cultures, and communicating with local people. I love overseas trips, but I am also interested in my own culture. I love to visit temples and shrines. I also love running. I have run more than ten marathons.

I recently passed the JLPT N1, and I feel that my conversations with 千代子さん really helped. I studied on my own, using the 新完全マスター series of books. I did five practice exams. I listened to the NHKジャーナル daily. I subscribed to the 朝日新聞 and made an effort to read at least one article a day. I also had weekly conversations with 千代子さん, discussing everything from politics and society to personal interests. When I had a question about a sentence in a book or a word or paragraph in an article, 千代子さん was extremely helpful. She spoke at my level, and over time, I found that words I had previously studied would naturally come up in conversation. If you want to get your N1 certificate, you have to study on your own. No one can make up for the effort and energy required to pass at that level. But if, on top of your studies, you include weekly lessons with 千代子さん, you will find yourself having delightful discussions that reinforce what you have learned.

ちよこさんと話す時間にはいつも興味深い話題を回っています。役に立つ言葉や表現をまとめていただいてありがとうございます。 Chiyoko is a great teacher who naturally guides conversation with helpful pointers along the way. I've really enjoyed talking with her about cultural topics, current events, and everything in between.

Great lesson with Chiyoko-san as always! I'm always learning a lot from her lessons and she somehow manages to sustain a decent conversation, despite my limited Japanese. ありがとうございます!
