Since then, despite living outside of Japan, I have progressed from a complete beginner to being what most people would call fluent, i.e., able to hold long conversations with native speakers, read short stories and newspaper articles, and watch Japanese TV shows. Yumi has been a huge help to me, especially because she is a native Japanese speaker but also has excellent English, which really allows her explain difficult questions about nuanced translations, Japanese slang, and other instances of “real” Japanese. If you’re really serious about becoming fluent, I’d highly recommend trying a lesson with her. Shaun Harrison Iv always been in interested in Japanese culture so it was natural decision to want to learn nihongo. I tried on my own for a while but book and audio did not help me learn properly nor could i ask a book or tape questions. I discovered Yumitolesson.com and set up a free lesson and was amazed at how easy going and fun the lesson was. Yumisensei has not only been wonderful but very influential in helping me become Conversational fluent and motivating me not to give up when things get tough. She offers a personal hands on approach that anyone no matter what their age or proficiency would benefit from. Thanks to her and her excellent teaching i have learned more Japanese in under a year than i could have ever hope to. Not just from the lessons but motivating to go out and meeting nihonjin in my own area to practice with in-between lessons.

As a busy professional I value my free time tremendously. Yumi’s lessons are fun, challenging and something I always look forward to. My lessons and homework are completely tailored not only to my busy schedule but specifically to my individual learning needs. I highly recommend lessons with Yumi to anyone looking to learn Japanese! Ken Akulin I am an advanced student and over the years have studied with many Japanese teachers, all fluent in their native language but since they learned to speak Japanese when they were children they had difficulty in understanding the problems of an adult learner such as myself. Only Yumi was able to explain the logic and subtleties of the language in terms that I could easily understand.
