 Again a very enjoyable and productive lesson. The content from the previous lesson was reviewed thoroughly, new elements were added. It was challenging yet accessible and the explanations were clear. Junko-sensei also added some elements of Japanese culture and etiquette wich is always apreciated. Homeworks were also handed after the lesson.

 That first lesson was a great success. It was the perfect balance between getting to know each other and actually starting learning some Japanese. I felt like my motives and needs were understood and my level correctly asserted. Junko-sensei is a warm, pleasant and competent instructor.

 Highly recommended. You can try to self-study Japanese and get pretty far, but the practice really locks in once you work with her. As usual, Junko is a fair, friendly, organized teacher who will, for sure, help you as long as you put in the work. I absolutely suggest her for you if you are trying to learn or improve your nihongo!

 I was nervous about continuing because I didn't have enough time to study all of the material, but Junko put me at ease right away as we covered previously reviewed material and introduced some new concepts also! Junko is indeed a wonderful teacher!
