Mari-sensei is a fun and encouraging teacher with very effective lessons covering speaking and listening. As her student, at the end of each lesson, she asks for what I want to know next time; lessons are tailored to fit the students' needs. She is polite when correcting mistakes I make and motivates me well in studying Japanese.

Ich hatte wieder eine sehr angenehme und produktive Stunde mit Mari san. Die Grammatik wurde anhand verschiedener, praxisnaher Anwendungsbeispiele gemeinsam einstudiert. Ich habe das Gefühl sehr viel gelernt zu haben und kann den Unterricht mit Mari san nur uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.

Heute haben wir im Unterricht Satzkonstruktionen mit den Verben あげます, もらいます und  くれます geübt. Da diese im Japanischen komplett andere Konnotationen beinhalten wie im Deutschen und vor allem dem Aspekt der "Höflichkeit" eine weit andere Bedeutung beikommt wie im Deutschen, war die Übung für mich nicht ganz einfach. Trotzdem hat es Mari san geschafft mir die grammatikalischen Regeln so zu erklären und die Übungen so abzustimmen, dass ich möglichst viel aus dem Unterricht für mich mitnehmen konnte. 麻里さん、ありがとうございます!

Mari-sensei has been extremely helpful, and I appreciate how she tries to understand what I need first before proceeding with the lesson. Because of this, the lesson was very efficient and customized to fit my requirements. I will book a class again soon!
