I've taught ESL to many students, varying from people who could barely say "hello" to those who were just trying to get the past perfect continuous tense right. I love it.

Thanks so much for Toshi in this quarantine time training. Toshi is a very strict teacher and mentor. And thank you for being an inspiration for my Japanese journey. You taught me how to strive for perfect pronunciation and precise in Japanese speaking skills, giving 200% when I’m studying/training and push my self over the limit. You taught me how to think smart and better, confidence for my Japanese. You totally changed my negativity. I will keep training as hard as my brain allows me to do so. Thanks ❤️

Toshi is an excellent teacher for students of any skill level! He's very knowledgable, friendly, and does a great job including information about Japanese culture to help teach the language.
Nathan
I've been taking lessons with Toshi for almost two years now, and have enjoyed every lesson we've had. Toshi does a great job at teaching the full spectrum of Japanese: grammar, vocabulary, hiragana/katakana/kanji, and the differing forms based on level of politeness in a conversation.

Olivier is completely bilingual and brings a breadth of knowledge, patience, engagement, and personalization to his teaching that makes him, hands down, the best tutor I’ve ever had.

"Mr. Chau Nguyen is a dedicated, experienced, and friendly Vietnamese teacher. He adapts readily to different types of students and is able to teach both beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. One of Chau's strengths is that he makes class interesting for the learner, by using a variety of different topics to keep things fun. For more advanced students, Chau will engage your mind and discuss a variety of political, economic, and cultural issues.

Chau has a long and impressive teaching resume, most recently as an instructor for U.S. diplomats going to Vietnam, at the U.S. State Department's Foreign Service Institute. I highly recommend Chau as a Vietnamese instructor."

5 Simple Rules For Japanese Pronunciation

Japanese pronunciation can be difficult for beginners, but these tips from Ann Arbor, MI teacher Elaina R. can help you understand some of the basic rules.

I could hear who had trouble with what, and as I started studying languages and diction, I began to understand why. Whether or not you speak Japanese, there are some quick adjustment …
