はじめまして、照代です。日本語を教えることはとても楽しく、特に、生徒さんの日本語 が上手になっていくのをお手伝いできることに喜びを感じています。外国語を勉強すると世界が広がります。一緒に楽しく日本語を勉強しましょう!

I enjoy teaching Japanese and especially love seeing my students improve their Japanese skills and understand Japanese culture more deeply (and love Japan more!). It is so much fun to learn a foreign language and communicate with people in that language and I would like to share that experience with you. I am looking forward to studying Japanese together!
