Lady Ayame

15-minute Free Talk! (American English)
I have been taking a lesson from Lady Ayame for long time.

She inspires me how to develop topics and organize proper expression.

She doesn't intervene frequently for minor mistake in the conversation.

Rather she is attentive and careful for my .talking and pronunciation.

And she corrects my mistake if it is repetitive and important.

Her way for lesson gives me confidence and makes me very comfortable.

I feel Lady Ayame is the best tutor in cafetalk.

Saya T

Japanese Conversation Plus 5LP
I am a multi-linguist (French, English and Spanish at near native level). I love languages and I have been studying Japanese for years. It's been quite a rough experience. I've bought multiple textbooks, apps and have had dozens of lessons with different teachers.

I got very lucky finding Saya Sensei because she is one the few teachers that is willing to tell you the truth about your Japanese. Saya sensei will constantly tell you when you make mistakes (in a kindly manner) no matter how many times you make the same error over and over again. She is persistent and that kind of effort that she puts into her lessons makes a huge difference.

Believe me, I've been studying with Saya sensei for only a month (twice a week) and I feel so much more confident about my Japanese. Instead of hearing "Your Japanese is great!", I get to hear very helpful and honest advice from her directly.

All the lessons that I have had with Saya sensei revolve around topics that I choose. When I am out of ideas, Saya sensei will make the effort of bringing up a theme that she believes will interest me and also be helpful.

One more thing, Saya sensei gives great post lesson feedback. I was impressed by the amount of time she invests in the feedback emails. So not only does she write you feedback but she also supports it with materials and website links. This alleviates the stress of writing everything during a lesson.

Long story short, I have found THE most honest and invested Japanese teacher I have ever met. If only I had met her ten years ago...

いつも楽しくレッスンを行っています。楽しいだけでなくしっかりと最低10個は新しいことを学べるので楽しみながら語彙やフレーズを身に着けることができます。様々なことについての会話の練習ができるのですが歴史やお笑いが好きな方などに特におすすめです。Thank you for always putting up with my various requests, sometimes it is to explain 100 new words for 50 mins and sometimes it is to digress from one topic to another every 5 seconds. It's fun to talk about literally anything because he is open to various topics and knows when to jump in to correct my mistakes. Highly recommend!

GayleG

Daily Chat Class - 30 Minutes
Gayleに投票する一番の理由は、言ってることが分かりやすいということです。
まず発音の癖がなくて落ち着いた低音の声なので、こちらもリラックスして聞けます。
それから説明の仕方が簡潔なので、混乱することもありません。
レッスンを受ける際に、とても重要なポイントだと思います。
