I had a fun class with Motoko-sensei. We introduced ourselves and different opinions towards language learning in Japan and other countries. I enjoyed my chat with Motoko-sensei. ありがとうございました！

In this course, Ms. Kana prepares specific teaching materials for us according to our ability. These materials allow effective learning on Japanese. Also, she provides homework for us to practice and revise. As a result, it is an excellent course.

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.

I talked to Rhys for the first time in a month. I often request a few things to do for one lesson.
Today’s lesson was just like a gift box with assorted cookies. After we caught up on each other’s lives&news, I asked him a few questions from the movie I watched and the book I’ve been reading. Then we played a word game. After that, we ran through a picture description quickly.Rhys is always generous to accept my random requests but I was afraid of my being acquisitive and I asked him too much for one lesson.However, Rhys kindly sent me a message which said he would be ready for all of them, so I felt reassured and looked forward to our lesson so much. It’s always pleasant to chat with Rhys, who is compassionate, reasonable and committed to his work. 久しぶりにリース先生とお話できて本当に楽しかったです。時間の流れと自粛生活の成果が見られ同時にお元気そうで何よりでした。いつも以上にあれこれ違ったことをお願いしてしまいましたが、快くリクエストに応じて下さいました。こういうご時世でも長年お世話になっている先生が変わらずいて下さるという安心感を噛み締めました。

I was very impressed with my lesson from Kana! I requested a lesson to help me practice adjectives. I was really happy with the lesson that Kana prepared about adjectives. I was able to practice speaking a lot during the lesson. Kana explained the grammar points very well. I also liked that she used the chatbox to explain new vocabulary to me so that I can review later. Thank you Kana for a wonderful lesson!

Kana san is nice and well prepared materials for the lesson. This is the first class. So she spent amount of time to test my Japanese levels and what my expect from her class..She is a detail oriented teacher. She was helping me to finish sentences in Japanese during the lesson.I was enjoying to talk to her in Japanese.

Kana sensei was an excellent teacher. She corrected my mistakes, which I appreciate! Also, her feedback was thorough, and she even wrote each Kanji with Hiragana, so it was very helpful! I would highly recommend taking her lessons.

使用しているテキストでは４ユニットにわたって冠詞と取り上げていますが今日が最後のユニットでした。リース先生は毎回私の質問や思わず口から出た本音の言葉１つ１つに嫌がらず答え、反応し、励まして下さいました。テストで点数を取ることが大事だった学生時代だったら避けたかもしれませんが、いい大人になってから取り組むと確かに混乱はしますが当時に面白さも感じます。これからも冠詞は特に相変わらず間違うと思いますが、またこのテキストに戻って復習したいと思います。私の学生時代には習わなかったことや大人になってから独学で学んで忘れていたことをこのテキストを通して学んだり復習したりできて本当にうれしく思います。Rhys always takes my quesitons that might sometimes sound geeky without frowning. As I've told him several times, I'm weak in articles. It must be one of the unsurpassable obstacles for me, but thanks to Rhys, now I think far more positively about it.

We continuously worked on articles(a,an,the) and zero articles. The contents I learned today are all what I didn't learn in my school days, but as an adult, I find them here and there and they are all useful. In spite of the bad connection, Rhys provided me an informative lesson.

I got burned out after I had finished the phrasal verb textbook with Rhys. So I was pretty gun-shy about learning grammar through this famous textbook. However, I find it essential to have decent conversations with native speakers, to read articles and books in English.
It's challenging but probably rewarding at the same time. Today's lesson was eye-opening. I appreciate Rhys meething my request.

After four times studying on the lesson, I started to speak little Japanese with Nozaki先生。Besides the lesson, I also access "picture book reading " on youtube which helps me review what I learned well. This kind of learning is closer to natural learning which requires more time and patience. However, it is also inspiring that I could use Japanese in daily contexts.
