Why do you want to learn Japanese?
I am learning Japanese to better myself while living in the country of Japan. I think it is very important to learn the language of the country you reside in as a symbol of respect and self preservation.
I also learn to Japanese to speak with and understand what my children may say as they are bilingual in speaking Japanese and English.
I also work for a Japanese company in Tokyo and even though the company is 75% foreigner, not all of my co-workers are fluent in speaking English. I wanted to make better relationships with them and also gain an edge towards upward mobility within the company.
Why did you choose Japan Switch?
Japan switch gives me so many benefits as a student. First Japan switch is very affordable for me compared to most Japanese language schools. If you are looking for a quality Japanese language school that will not break your bank, then Japan switch is the school to go to. It does not have any hidden or enrollment fees. The school gives allows me one free makeup up lesson each month if I miss a regular lesson. I am able to choose between group or private lessons at any time depending on my own personal goals.
How are your lessons?
My lessons are interesting and challenging. It is interesting because I learn formal and informal ways to speak Japanese. I learn the difference in words or phrases that may mean the same thing when speaking Japanese. I am learning the correct way to speak in different types of situations. It is challenging because I am learning to speak, write and read a language that is new to me. My lessons are are mixed with conversation, new vocabulary, writing and repetition until it is engraved into my brain. I can use what I learned from my lessons as soon as I step out of the classroom and communicate with the locals. It gives me a feeling of self gratification!
How did Japan Switch surprise you?
I was nervous about starting classes a Japanese language school because I felt my level of understanding and comprehension would hinder my ability to learn. The staffed really made me feel at ease with the whole enrollment process by presenting a relaxed but professional environment. I was very surprised by the quality of the teachers and lessons given for the price of taking the lessons. Sato sensei seems eager to share his passion of teaching Japanese language with his students. I am sure that I will reach my goal with Japanese language through Japan Switch!
