One of the very best! Amazing structured lessons that are always rewarding and interesting. Kumiko clearly spends a lot of time and effort crafting personalized lessons tailored to individual student needs. Her lessons are challenging and engaging, and for me, on par with taking a rigorous university course. I look forward to seeing what new videos and readings comprise the lessons for each week! Thanks!

Kumiko has been teaching me everything about job interviews and business Japanese. She and I are preparing for Japanese job interviews and writing my resume. I appreciate that she always plans and prepares for our lessons. After taking her class, I fell more confident to use Japanese for work and private.

Today we practised conversation during check in and check out at the ryokan. Sensei gave me very good tips on how to carry out a simple yet effective conversation. Thank you sensei. I am sure this will come in very useful during my trip to Japan.

As I am planning for my trip to Japan, sensei helped to include more conversational practice at different scenarios (post office, hotel, train station etc) The role play session is fun today. I am less worried about my trip to Japan now.

As I will be travelling to Japan soon and would like to post letters and postcards at the post office, sensei provided a lot of information for me so that I can navigate smoothly at the post office and we also practised simple conversation at the counter. Thank you very much sensei.
