“I have really enjoyed learning Japanese with Alexa! She always injects fun into our lessons, and takes time to really explain things well. I have been learning Japanese with her for about a year and a half via Skype, and it has been well worth it. After my move to Japan to teach English, I was able to put my new skills into practice – speaking in daily conversation; actually reading some of the otherwise alien symbols all around me; listening to AND understanding some of what my students are saying to me in their native tongue. In our time together, Alexa has helped me learn the JLPT N5 kanji, hiragana, katakana, and many many vocabulary words. We are aiming towards the N5 test in December, though no doubt my learning will continue to take me beyond just passing a test, and towards increasingly confident real-life communication!”
