Thank you for the today’s lesson. In this lesson, we talked about getting passport and travel abroad. In our conversation, there was a point where I couldn’t come up with a good expression to tell what I wanted to say. Thanks to Rhys’ patient, somehow I could tell him my thought. Conversation was enjoyable as usual. Thank you!

Rhys is always generous to meet my request, and bends over backward to help me. I'm pretty fortunate to have a congenial tutor like him.

I'm sorry that I haven't been posted a lesson review.
I took a lot of lessons from him.
He is very kind and sophisticated so I enjoy talking with him all the time.
Additionally, his feedback is amazing, it covers grammar mistakes, pronunciation and new vocabulary.
I feel improving my english skills thanks to him!

Thank you for the enjoyable lesson. In this lesson we talked about reading habit, a rabbit hole, and the other expression that uses the term ‘rabbit.’ And I could ask if my response was appropriate for the message I received just before this lesson. Thanks to Rhys’ advice, I could answer to a superior person with confidence.

Thank you for the enjoyable lesson! In today’s lesson we talked about how much hard to follow conversation of native speakers. Rhys has been learning Japanese and French, so I could share this kind of frustrations with him. We couldn’t find the best solution in this lesson. Maybe, it just need long time and listening a lot of contents.

Thank you for the today’s lesson! Today, we talked about some news topics from a natural disaster to political scandals. I’m interested in news topics but we have too many news to pic up these days. Today’s lesson was a good opportunity to talk about current news topics.
Thank you for the very helpful feedback! The link that you sent me was useful too.

Although Rhys told me his internet connection seemed bad in advance, there was no trouble during our lesson. In today’s lesson, we started talking about invoices with the story that I forgot to send my invoice to my client. And our topics turn to about making spreadsheets, then google, and how much we have to care about our private information. I think that my mistake could lead fruitful conversation.
Thank you for the useful feedback! It’s always very helpful for my English improvement.

Thank you for the today’s lesson. It was fun as usual. Just a few minutes before this lesson, I was stung by something, maybe a bug, on my leg. So our conversation started about poisonous ants. I hope the bug biting me wasn’t such dangerous one. From insects to politics, I can talk about many topics in 25 minutes thanks to Rhys bringing many topics.

Another fruitful lesson with Rhys.Teaching grammar to non-native speakers must be tough,especially to someone who keeps asking,"How come?" like me.However,Rhys always prepares very well for our lesson. Today,he kindly sent me links to a website and YouTube so that will help me understand the grammartical item.

Thank you for the enjoyable lesson! In this lesson we had a wide-ranging discussion. From space to small shops. The topic of Mars mission by NASA led discussion of big businesses vs small businesses and then it triggered my complaint to a bookstore in my town.

It was fun working on "Transcribe Short Clips". I thought it was easy when I saw it, but once I started, I had to concentrate a lot. It's great way to test my listening and writing skill. Thank you!

I haven't taken this lesson for a while since I didn't feel like checking out the foreign news websites,which headlines have been mainly COVID-19 related.News from Japanese news programs bring me down enough everyday.However,when I watched a police officer kneeing on Mr.George Floyd's neck and also watched the footages of riots and lootings caused by the death of Mr. George Floyd,I was totally shocked and couldn't help but book this lesson. I usually find an article by myself and send it to Rhys beforehand.This time I asked him to choose a proper one. I had already wathced some ABC and NBC news videos and listened to a few podcasts to get a big picture view of the issue.Rhys is Canadian, and I'm Japanese living in Japan.Therefore, we are both outsiders on this matter. That said,now people get together for demonstrations now in Canada where there's also racial problems.So I wanted to hear about the situation and his take.It's a very delicate topic and he's always mindful of his remarks,so I'm not sure how much Rhys was open about his thoughts and my questions. Still he never dodged my questions.He helped my organize and express my thoughts in English as usual. I often neglect to cross the t's and dot the i's.He sensed what I wanted to say,and rephrased or corrected my half-baked sentences.
I really appreciate his help,generosity,and patience.

Thank you for today’s lesson! In this lesson, we started conversation about communication APP, and our topics turned to social media and a newspaper. It is world common that people are stoping subscribing newspapers. We talked about how to get news these days and what different between Internet news sites and newspaper. It was useful conversation! Thanks.
