    Much better than learning from a book! Our teacher was fantastic at making the course accessible and keeping us at a pace we could each cope with. I made more progress on this 10 week course than I did over many years of solo learning!

    The teaching techniques were varied and interesting and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. I found it very difficult to learn (poor memory) but I have got some idea about some basic phrases. Thank you Natsuko.

    The tutor was enthusiastic and caring… qualities important in the teaching of Japanese. She encouraged all of us, put maximum effort into presentation, and was attentive to all of our needs.

    It would be a great pity if there were insufficient students to continue this course to Part 2. We’ve only just started !
