Doing our best for every student

Hi all,

Today’s post is about doing our best for each and every student of ours.

The below book on the left and the book on the right.

The same book, different dates of printing. I bought the left one when it first came out and the second one last week.

We purchase Japanese books almost every 2 months so that our students get the most up-to-date information from Japan. We are not natives, but we try our best to give our best to each and every student who gives us a chance.


If you think that this resonates with you, having a dedicated teacher to guide you through your studies. Please do give us a try and tell us if we did good or bad. =)

Readiness Interview

Hi all,

Today I would like to share more about our readiness interview.


In our Japanese teacher training course, we are taught that it is always recommended to have an interview with the potential student to understand the following:

1) How long has the student learnt Japanese (for students with prior knowledge)

2) Readiness towards the language that the student wishes to learn: i.e. Japanese

3) Studying capabilities (e.g. financially, time that the student is able to commit, other factors that will affect the student studying capabilities)

4) Needs of the student (e.g. what does the student wish to learn), so that we can adjust our teaching plan to suit all students in the group lesson.

We want our students to make an informed decision before joining us.

A good teacher would do this for all students, regardless whether the student is a private student or a group class student.
