  • Customized Lesson

    Cammie is a fabulous teacher, she always patiently listens to me until I finish speaking. If I ever get stuck, she will smoothly guide me to finish the conversation. Also, she always leave feedback during the class, so I can learn it instantly, and review it again after class. REALLY AMAZING!!!!!

  • Learn English with Short Movies!

    本当に毎回素晴らしいレッスンです。 なるべく私が話をするように持って行ってくれ、うまく英語で表現できなかった時も 近いものを探して、アドバイスしてくださいます。(フィードバックには、更に参考になる コメント付きです) 「これについて、どう思う??」といった質問も毎回盛り込んでくれ、とっさに考えて口に出す、トレーニングにもなっています。 レッスンの雰囲気はゆるい感じなのですが、毎回、得る事がたくさんあるレッスンです。

  • ノビノビ, 伸びる韓国語『中級』

    JOYJOY先生に韓国語を教わって約1年が経ちました。 授業では、できる韓国語の教科書に加え、先生のオリジナル教材を使って勉強します。そのため様々な単語や例文に触れることができ、40分間があっという間に感じるほど、とても楽しく充実した時間を過ごすことができます。また、毎回フィードバックも欠かさず送って下さり、学んだ文法を使って先生が例文を書いて下さるので復習にとても役立っています。さらに宿題や日記も添削して下さるので、盛り沢山でお値段以上のレッスンだと思います。 1年前と比べて、韓国のドラマやバラエティー、好きなアイドルが話す言葉などが“音“ではなく“言葉“として聞こえるようになってきました。韓国語は日本語と似ているようで似ておらず、簡単なようで簡単ではない言語だと思いますが、これからも楽しみながら学んでいけたらと思います(*^^*) JOYJOY先生、いつも本当にありがとうございます。これからもどうぞよろしくお願いいたします!
