Profile

Ayaka Takahashi

Through my studying abroad experiences in the U.S. at high school for 1 year and college for 4 years, teaching Japanese language and culture to people from all over the world became one of my big dreams. To have one step further, I would like to start my Japanese conversation lesson. My ideality towards creating lessons is that they are very casual, and not so serious and academic. Basing on my experience in studying English, listening and speaking are the most important elements.Thus, I would love to have a lot of conversation with various people through my teaching.
