Hi! I’m Ryu from Japan and I am a native speaker of Japanese. I also speak English and Filipino fluently. I have lived in Japan, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Hong Kong. I was a flight attendant and I love traveling, learning different languages, and listening to music. I have been learning Spanish and I love listening to Spanish / Latin American music. Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy, K-Pop? TWICE. I love to travel because I want to experience the unknown. It’s amazing how it makes us appreciate the opportunity and experience of a lifetime, while learning and having fun at the same time. 海外生活長い、旅好き、音楽好き、日本語英語比語

Ryu is a great teacher, I highly recommend him! He’s patient, and puts everything into context which makes it a lot easier to understand. And he teaches both the formal and informal version of vocabulary. I will continue taking classes with him!

Taking lessons with Ryu has been an amazing way to practice my Japanese. He's a natural conversation partner, and is always actively listening. He politely corrects my Japanese, and his excellent English skills are super helpful for bridging the gap in understanding. Highly recommend you check him out!

Ryu is a great teacher. He talks at a speed that I can understand. He's great at making corrections and giving context to all lessons. His lesson was personalized for my upcoming trip. Role-playing restaurant ordering is very helpful.
