Okamoto Sensei is a real person who is really nice, and is available to help you


This is a serious course for serious students that is quite comprehensive. I appreciate Okamoto Sensei's direct approach. Her explanations are brief, but show many examples. She routinely allows the student a moment to mirror her speech in the these sections. Of special note in this course is her commentary in the 'translate yourself' sections. I found them to be very useful because I can produce many structurally sound sentences, but I often do not know which ones are the most natural. These sections also contain many interesting notes on Japanese etiquette and culture. Lastly, Okamoto Sensei is a real person who is really nice, and is available to help you via this platform if you purchase the course!

I definitely would be lost without her grammar courses, I've bought them all.

Ayana 先生 explains the grammar easily. I'm using her course to help me with my college classes because the grammar isn't explained well enough in my class information or textbooks alone, especially Genki, I hate Genki. I definitely would be lost without her grammar courses, I've bought them all.
