Our Students Say
In 2020, I enrolled in Yulia's Beginners Japanese Course to gear up for a new role at The University of Tokyo. The small class size and straightforward curriculum offered a practical and easy-going approach to learning Japanese. The experience proved invaluable upon my arrival in Japan, smoothing the way for everyday tasks like calling a taxi, ordering food, and navigating the local transportation system.
Yulia’s teaching method centered around an intuitive textbook, beginning with essential greetings and phonetic pronunciations. We delved into the basics, covering the Japanese alphabet, Kanji, and simple sentence structures. While memorizing the alphabet posed a challenge, Yulia's patience and encouragement were instrumental in overcoming this hurdle. Her personal experiences in Japan provided a unique touch to the lessons, particularly in practical skills like using maps, deciphering signs, and navigating menus.
What set the class apart was the shared journey with classmates who, like me, were starting to learn the language. The small class environment fostered a supportive atmosphere where mistakes were accepted, creating a comfortable space for learning. Collaboratively working through the textbook helped us stay committed to the curriculum, especially during challenging moments.
In the end, I would highly recommend Yulia’s class which offered a well-rounded and helpful Japanese learning experience, blending a straightforward curriculum, a small class size, and the instructor's own insights. It provided a solid foundation for navigating language and culture, making it a valuable chapter in my language-learning journey.
