New testimonial from student

Hi all,

Received a new testimonial from a student.
—————————-

When I first started learning Japanese, it was not at Can sensei’s class. I originally started taking lessons elsewhere in a dedicated language school. However, due to personal and financial reasons, I decided to make a switch to Can sensei’s class due to recommendations from my relatives. I must state that the decision to make the change was an excellent one. He is a very dedicated teacher who really cares for his students and more.

When I first started off with an interview with Can sensei, he immediately got a sensing of my proficiency in Japanese. He understood that my basics, especially in particles, were not that strong. He then went through the process of solidifying my basics in a manner that I can easily understand. After which, he made sure that anything that I did not understand up to my level was clearly explained. To explain things in a way that we can easily understand, he sometimes uses language that we can very easily relate to, such as Singlish. That helped a lot in understanding certain usage of different forms.

Can sensei will often tweak the lessons and teachings based on the class and towards each student. He is very patient and attentive to our strengths and weaknesses. He not only teaches the grammar or vocabulary of the language, but he also strongly emphasizes on the way we pronounce the words. This is especially understandable as different intonations carry different meanings in Japanese. If one is familiar with mandarin, one would see it as being similar to the difference in intonation between the different tones.

Not only is Can sensei an exceptional teacher, he is also a caring one. He ensures that each student is comfortable in his class and even purchases expensive and comfortable chairs for his students so that they can enjoy class in comfort. He also enhances the learning process and makes it easy for students to be able to access the lesson from elsewhere by using a digital whiteboard supplementing the traditional whiteboard.

Can sensei not only cares for us during lessons but outside as well, and often tries to help others to the best of his abilities. With regards to personal issues outside of class, one can definitely look up to Can sensei for advice. Personally, Can sensei has helped me get through an extremely tough period of my time. I am very appreciative of him being there for me during this tough time and looking out for me and caring for my well-being.

Can sensei often encourage his students by giving them rewards and gifts from time to time and does his best to motivate his students to pursue their interest in mastering Japanese. He will often share his experiences of going to Japan and introduce shows that we can watch so that we can pursue our interest in advancing our proficiency in the Japanese language.

All in all, I must say that Can sensei is a very dedicated, exceptional and caring teacher that one should have. His care and attentiveness is one to yearn for and you will find that studying under him is definitely a magnificent choice.

Attending lessons due to COVID-19

Dear all,


We have advised our students to opt to
 
1) Attend the lesson online while the actual lesson is conducted in the classroom.
2) Ask for a video recording of the lesson
3) Come for the actual class (should the student wish to do so)
 
We have prepared for this kind of situation since a few years ago when our PSI index in Singapore reached 400.
 
For those who are viewing online, the whiteboard and PC screen will be shown to them.
