I've noticed a significant improvement in my pronunciation within just a month, thanks to Sumito Sensei's innovative teaching method. He had us record an episode and then re-record the same episode a month later. This exercise, combined with listening to recordings from other students, proved extremely beneficial. It allowed me to clearly hear and compare the differences in my pronunciation over the month. I'm really impressed by the progress I've made in such a short time, and I appreciate how this method has helped enhance my language skills. Sumito Sensei's approach not only improves our pronunciation but also boosts our confidence in speaking.

Yet another incredible session! Sumito sensei challenges me, pushing me to explore and articulate situations in detail, a skill crucial for enriching conversations. He guided me in crafting sentences that flow more naturally. It was super fun and challenging today! ありがとう!

Sumito-sensei does a phenomenal job locating general areas in my language usage that need improvement, and also pinpointing specifics I need to focus on to be able to competently use Japanese in my everyday life. As a teacher myself, I understand that I'm a difficult student because I have no formal Japanese language schooling so my knowledge base/ability level is extremely inconsistent. I've taken a fair amount of classes on Italki (at this time, more than 100), and I can honestly say that while every teacher has been helpful in their own way, Sumito-sensei's lessons have given me the most tangible/usable progress in the shortest amount of time. Learning Japanese on your own is overwhelming for a number of reasons, one of them being that it's difficult to find honest feedback on your Japanese that's not basic text-book Japanese based. Sumito-Sensei's feedback is honest, practical, and very helpful. I highly recommend Sumito-sensei's lessons if you want to be able to speak naturally.

I really enjoyed the trial lesson with Sumito先生. I felt comfortable and am confident that he understands where I am in my learning journey and what I need to do to achieve my goals. I look forward to continuing learning from him.
