A message from Emiko / Her Philosophy
I try to use natural and realistic conversation exercises.
In my classes, we work on many different facial expressions, body movements, hand gestures, and conversation gap fillers that Native Japanese often use.
When I was learning English – I remember wishing that I knew how to say certain things and certain words when I was living overseas, so I really understand how my students feel, and I try to include these kinds of little things in my lessons.
