I have a meeting with my partner's Japanese clients next week, and Ayano has been incredible at helping me prepare. This has so far included: - Going through a list of nitpicky questions I sent her on language, actions, and etiquette, methodically answering each one with text, images, and even doodles! - Bringing her own list of typical Japanese business dinner small talk topics to see how prepared I was to answer them (answer: not at all) - Making time in class to walk me through structuring a letter to them, after I'd struggled to write it on my own - Sending me links to resources on topics relevant to these clients - Making herself available to answer questions at any time, even outside classes This is on top of our usual conversation practise at the start of each class, which has been as valuable as always. Ayano has introduced me to so many potential opportunities (and pitfalls!) for this visit, I don't know what I would have done without her. Truly above and beyond.

More 'nai-form' practice, but this time with irregular verbs added in. Ayano sensei has made this lesson very relevant by creating a real world scenario in a maid cafe where you must ask if you can do something, or if you're being asked to not do something. I'm still a little slow at this, so I will review the material before the next lesson. Ayano sensei's lessons are always fun!

Ayano is always well prepared with topics, vocabulary and exercises. She puts a lot of care and effort into her lessons, and it shows. She also presented me with a lesson plan for upcoming weeks today, and it is great to know that she's got everything planned out so well in advance.

More Fun Times in Ayano's Lesson! This time, I had a bunch of questions, and we had lots of conversations in Japanese relating to those questions! It feels more and more natural to use Japanese each day, and I still have more to improve! Afterwards, we studied reading and understanding a Japanese video I found about Visiting a Shrine! It was very interesting, as I've never been to a Japanese Shrine before, so never knew the various customs before! I always have so much fun and learn so many things like this from Ayano's Lessons! いつも本当にありがとうございます!!!

Another Wonderful Lesson with Ayano! This time, we reviewed a bunch of adverbs I've been studying lately! We made practice sentences using the adverbs, and Ayano corrected any mistakes I made, which really helped me understand the words further! I also asked a lot of questions about the kanji these words used, as Ayano explained how often each of the kanji are actually used. One was actually never used and even changed the meaning of the word! Ayano continues to be perfect in guiding me on my journey to becoming fluent in Japanese!!! いつも本当にありがとうございます!!!

I always learn so much from Ayano's Lessons and they're Always Tons of Fun!!! We're always using Japanese as much as possible during our lessons! When I try using Japanese with Ayano, I'm always learning new things as Ayano always shows me more fluent words to use, or better grammar to use! Practicing with and learning from Ayano is really improving my Japanese over time, and I'm definately becoming more fluent day by day! いつも本当にありがとうございます!!!
