I really value the flexibility to choose what and how I want to learn.
I attended a Japanese class one night a week (in Australia) for four years. Although it was a good way to start, it did not meet my needs after a while. We were racing through the grammar with no time to consolidate what we were learning. Sometimes the content of the textbook was irrelevant to me, because of my age (in my 60s) and interests. Taking private lessons at Nihongo-pro with Fujiwara-sensei allows me to revise the grammar I’ve already been exposed to and use it in ways that are meaningful to me.

I am mainly focused on writing at the moment. I write about my life and thoughts so the content is always relevant to what I am likely to want to talk about with my Japanese friends. I really value the flexibility to choose what and how I want to learn – not what a textbook offers – that is available at Nihongo-pro. At the same time I am exposed to new items through the writing practice book that Fujiwara-sensei recommended. Many of these items turn out to be quite simple common expressions which my previous textbook did not include. So I feel I have the best of everything now.

I appreciate the ease of reserving class times (as well as cancelling when necessary). And I value the use of the whiteboard during class. It’s very clear and easy to see where the errors in my writing and to clarify any confusions I have. The electronic access to teacher resources that Sensei has allows her to explain grammar points or put up definitions of new words. This makes the lesson run smoothly and efficiently. Being sent all the files afterwards means I can check the corrections to my errors, practice any new words, and make my writing into a reader for my own later use.

In the 6 months I have been having lessons with Fujiwara-sensei, my Japanese writing skills have definitely improved. I’m looking forward to continuing!

I look forward to continuing my Japanese language journey with Yamamoto Sensei and am grateful to have her as my teacher.
I first started seriously learning Japanese in 2012 after I had my first phone conversation with my Japanese aunt. From 2012 to 2014 I started learning more Japanese through college courses and devoted self study. As someone with mild autism I found I could easily dedicate myself toward learning Japanese language and culture. I also continued to have phone conversations with my aunt.

I began my Japanese language comeback on June 2nd 2020 when I started my first class with Yamamoto Sensei. Luckily I had learned a lot of Japanese language before and retained a lot of the knowledge from when I first learned it, so I was able to easily regain a lot of the knowledge I had forgotten as she educated me through the lessons. I am currently taking one class a week because of my busy work schedule as a massage therapist, I would like to take more than one class with Yamamoto Sensei in the future.

Yamamoto Sensei is very kind and has so much to offer, when she teaches a class it is made quite clear that she possesses plenty of experience as a teacher and plenty of knowledge on Japanese culture. She orients the class to the student's goal and is flexible to schedule changes. She also lives in Japan, and thus lives in a Japanese Language environment which is an invaluable way for a foreigner like myself to learn about Japanese language and culture. As I continue Yamamoto Sensei's lessons, I find myself learning something new in every lesson and it always gives me a sense of happiness to learn something I never knew before.

Yamamoto Sensei's positive personality makes the classes a lot of fun, and it is especially enjoyable when we have cultural exchange conversations. I still to this day am eager to learn from Yamamoto Sensei the meaning of every word in my favorite song "愛のメモリー".

山本先生、ほんとうにありがとうございます。
