« Arika sensei is very helpful in improving my spoken Japanese. I used to learn Japanese on my own and never got oral practice with a native speaker so I used to be shy in speaking Japanese. Akira sensei is patient enough to bear my silly grammar mistakes and gradually I’m not afraid to make mistakes and speak out. Akira sensei is flexible in designing the courses to achieve my goals. For me, as I’d like to improve my listening and speaking skills, short videos in various topics are used for listening practice and during the courses, I’ll talk with Akira sensei in Japanese about the videos I watched. »

Akira is an excellent teacher! He provides both a great mix of listening, speaking and practical learning activities, also provides written learning materials.
I would recommend him to everyone who would like to learn the Japanese language and the traditions. He is very patient and keeps the classes fun.

Akira is an excellent teacher. He is understanding and patient with his students, while also making it enjoyable to learn. Pronunciation is usually difficult with learning new languages and Akira has made it much easier to understand and relate. I couldn't recommend a better teacher for learning Japanese!!
