Hi, I'm Yoko! Nice to meet you! I learned English when I was in Japan, but there weren't a lot of opportunities for me to actually practice speaking with native English speakers (kind of like if you're studying Japanese in Western Sydney). So I want you guys to have that opportunity to speak Japanese with me as much as you like and get better and better!
I was born in Osaka, Japan - which means that I'm friendly and love to eat! I started to teach Japanese privately a few years ago, mostly to foreigners living in Japan. It was so fun and very rewarding to me. I love learning languages too and can speak English, Japanese and Korean. In 2016 I achieved my personal goal of teaching Japanese abroad in South Korea and realised that I want to keep teaching Japanese as much as I can! In September 2017, I moved from Japan to Australia. I want to continue my dream of teaching Japanese here!
Hi, I'm Jason. Like most other Japanophiles (it's a word!), I was first exposed to Japan through popular culture in High School, then started learning Japanese at UWS Parramatta (or WSU, as it's now called) while I studied computer programming. After I graduated, I went to Japan for a couple of years to teach English and returned to Australia in 2016. I really wanted to continue learning Japanese, but found that there weren't really a lot of places where I could do that without travelling all the way to the city. I like to help Yoko with her lessons as much as possible.
