Japanese Lesson Fee and Availability

Japanese Lesson Approach

I always focus on students requests so if you would like to have oral lessons and informal lessons rather than a proper ‘text book’ approach, I can do that as well.   I want my all students to achieve their goals and enjoy the journey of learning.
