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.
Please contact me for the schedule if you are interested in my lesson. Thank you!
