What I like about this lesson is to take a quick look at the vocabulary before listening to the news. Even if I know the words, I sometimes miss the words or cannot recall the meaning easily. So, the quick check helps me understand the news. (Of course, I hope to understand the news without the vocabulary check in the future.)
I had a few things I had always wanted to ask native speakers. Rhys
quickly understood my questions and explained very well even though the questions had a subtle expression in Japanese. He is very approachable, let alone a great teacher. I would love to take his lesson again!
Time flies, doesn’t it? I can’t believe it’s been nearly five years! There have been many ups and downs during these years, but your smiling faces, kind words and diligence have made this experience all worthwhile. I’ve learned so much from all of you that I think I could say that I’m your student! Your kind words have encouraged me and your challenging questions have pushed me to better understand my own language. I’ve worked with students as young as two and as old as 80; from toddlers to octogenarians. It has been a true joy! Thank you for helping me reach this milestone! May all of you have many happy days of studying ahead!
