A message from Naoko / Her Philosophy
When I was living abroad I personally experienced the challenges that come with living overseas and trying to learn a foreign language. Now, I want to be able to help foreigners living in Japan who are trying to learn Japanese.
I want to hear all about your life in Japan! Please talk to me about your good experiences, your troubles, things that surprised you, and anything else you would like to talk about!
I will cherish any and all unexpected encounters at the Azabu school! Let’s enjoy studying together!
