Message from a Nihongo-Pro Student
I am in good hands with Yamafuji-sensei and Nihongo-Pro...

A German and French teacher for 11 years, and also World Language Department Head of my high school, I can attest to Nihongo-Pro’s effective and efficient delivery of Japanese lessons in a nurturing, caring environment.

I have the great honor to work with Yamafuji-sensei, who makes use of all the teaching methodologies that I require my own teachers to employ in our school classrooms.

Coupled with her positive, encouraging and supportive demeanor, Yamafuji-sensei is an expert in delivering clear and effective instructions in my Japanese lessons. She targets, implements and assesses student achievement in a relaxed, entertaining environment, making learning seem “fun and easy”.

  • All of Yamafuji-sensei’s instruction is given in Japanese, which reinforces listening skills, enlarges vocabulary, and trains the student’s mind to think in Japanese. If I do not know a word, Yamafuji-sensei writes the word down in Japanese and English, and I understand, without interruption of the flow of the lesson. I use this same method in my classes.
  • Every grammar and vocabulary concept presented is accompanied by a visual image, the appropriate text and Yamafuji-sensei speaking it as well. Then, I write down the concepts and continue to listen and repeat, viewing the image and text again. I personally use this effective method too, so students are exposed to listening, speaking, reading and writing from the start.
  • Yamafuji-sensei uses verbal assessments to verify that I have mastered the material, and reviews the lesson’s material in an organized and structured way. The lesson goal and objectives are easily apparent.
  • Nihongo-Pro’s Support Room offers students a whiteboard, which is essential to lesson delivery, especially for visual and spatial learners like me. I personally cannot teach and learn without a whiteboard.
  • Finally, an aspect of utmost importance in evaluating my teachers is the classroom environment. Yamafuji-sensei has created a distinct positive instructional environment conducive to learning. She always is concerned with my well-being, and as evidenced by her lessons, has built a strong working relationship based on trust, support and encouragement.

In conclusion, I am extremely satisfied with my choice to study Japanese at Nihongo-Pro. With education as my own profession, I feel assured that I am in good hands with Yamafuji-sensei and Nihongo-Pro, as evidenced by my tremendously improved listening, reading, speaking and writing ability.
