My lesson style varies depending on what you would like to focus on.

Please do not hesitate to let me know what kind of lesson you want and I plan lessons you can enjoy.

My favorite text books are Japanese for busy people 1,2,3 , MINNA NO NIHONGO, Genki, NIHONGO CHUUKYU J301 but we can use any text book you like or you do not have to have a text book.

It's up to you.
