I teach both children and adults and from absolute beginners to advanced level students. I begin by introducing essential sentence patterns and teaching how to use them in practise conversations. I use role-play to make the conversations real and teach how to speak Japanese naturally.You will soon realise my lessons are completely different from normal language studies at school and find that my method is both practical and effective.
