I have been learning English for a long time.
So, I understand how much effort you make when you learn the Japanese language.

Many people say that Japanese is very difficult to learn. It might be.
However, I think that Japanese is a nice and very beautiful language which has some kind of playful spirit.:)

I will be happy to spend the
joyful and productive time with you in my lessons.

I use simple English for beginners when it is necessary.
