Thank you for learning with us and our amazing Tutors this Autumn/Winter 2020!

Thank you for learning with us and our amazing Tutors this Autumn/Winter 2020!

For many, 2020 has been a rough time with many uncertainties. Therefore, it may be a little harder to get into a festive mood for the holiday season this year. But because of this, we think it is all the more vital to celebrate small successes and express our gratitude to our students and tutors. And hopefully, Cafetalk has been a source of joy and learning for those students who kept on learning with us while protecting others by staying at home.

So, as every year, as 2020 is about to end we are opening up the polls one more time to let you, the students, choose the most popular lessons & tutors of the second half of 2020☆★

Vote for a favorite lesson that you’ve been taking on a regular basis, or let the world know about a new rising star you’ve discovered.
Make sure to support the tutors you think deserve some recognition for all their hard work!

Students' Voice

  • [Photo] FunFun Korean photo description class

    EMMA PARK先生は、日本語が話せないのですが、ついつい日本語を話してしまうことを防げてわからないことは、簡単な言葉に変えて話したりして脳をフル回転することが出来ます。 レッスン終わった後のフィードバックが、動画と音声フォイル。レッスン内容は、レポートみたいにびっしり。頂いた時、とてもビックリしとても感動致しました。 語彙力も増え、復習にもとても役立ち感謝しております。

  • 韓国語文法レッスン

    毎回とても丁寧に対応してくださり、習った言葉を使って話してみようと思わせてくださるような雰囲気で話しやすいです。質問への対応やフィードバックも丁寧で分かりやすいです。

  • Free conversation - 60 minutes

    When I chat with Hinako-sensei I have a lot of fun, so it is very easy to learn things without even realizing! She puts thought in advance for the lessons so that they can be even more enjoyable and enriching. I particularly enjoyed chatting with her about my photographs and memories. いつもありがとうございます!

  • Knowledge builder - 30 minutes

    カフェトークを始めたばかりの頃に、はじめて受講しました。発音がはきはきとしていて聞き取りやすく、レッスンもしっかり準備してくれていました。何より、生徒が本当に学びたいことを手助けしたいという気持ちが伝わってきたのが嬉しかったので、その後もお世話になっています。

  • Let's Read Some Literature! <Single Class>

    洋書を読んでいて、ピンとこない箇所のニュアンスについて、いろいろな質問をしたのですが、先生が教えてくれたことはとても役に立って、その後になっても繰り返し読み返しています。外国人の私を理解しようという気遣いや、生徒を助けたいという思いが感じられる、とても素敵な先生です。

  • 一日一言韓国語(20分x4回)

    15分×15回レッスンが、終了になり、継続して20分のレッスンを受けてます。 ジナ先生は、優しくて穏やかで分かりやすい説明もして下さる人気の先生です。 20分レッスンになる時にレッスン内容の提案で、教材も新しくなり常に生徒のことを考えて下さっています。 文法の教材で学んでいますが、時には、フリートークで話したりも。数日に1回ずつのレッスンで韓国語が日々の生活に無理なく習慣的に学べます。

  • なんでも30分レッスン(4 lessons)(30分)

    二つのレッスンを交互に受けているので、こちらのパックは選択できてとてもいいです。授業で、なかなか言葉が出てこなかったり、何を言っているのか自分でも良く分からなくなるんですが、そんな時でも先生はゆっくり待ってくれますし、何よりリラックスした雰囲気でいつも受けることができています。先生の笑顔が素敵です。

  • Writing Correction

    He's never failed to impress me with his depth of wisdom and creativity. He made seemingly an impossible goal possible by helping me realise that I can do better. For that, I'm forever grateful.
