I have completed one term of classes (upper intermediate) at Konnichiwhat so far. Kumi-sensei and Fuyuka-sensei are wonderful teachers who differentiate their teaching to suit all learners. The lessons are fun and have a focus on conversation skills, with some structured textbook activities. I am looking forward to another term at Konnichiwhat.

I started learning Japanese on Duolingo 6 months ago but soon felt I also needed a tutor to listen to, practise speaking with, and to teach me more broadly. I can't believe how lucky I am to have found Kumi. She is a fabulous teacher, and lots of fun as well! I have made huge progress with her in my hour long, weekly, online sessions, and can't recommend her highly enough. Thank you Kumi!!!!

KonnichiWhat is a fantastic place to learn Japanese.I started learning Japanese with Kumi sensei as a complete beginner two years ago and have had a great experience.The lessons are always fun and interactive, with lots of opportunities to ask questions or slow down if I'm finding a certain part a bit difficult.I'd recommend online or in-person lessons. Either way they are well planned, clearly explain the topic, and include real-world examples.

Great place to learn Japanese!! Kumi-san is very patient, friendly and knows how to pace the lesson well each class. She’s always conversing in Japanese which encourages me to respond in kind, but she’s also ready to translate any words I struggle with. Thank you for always listening to my very slow and full of grammatical errors Japanese! All in all, highly recommended 🙂

I’ve been a student of KonnichiWhat for more than two years and have really enjoyed the experience. I’ve used both in-person and zoom lessons and in each case my teacher was always clear and easy to understand. The lesson format for one-on-one lessons works really well for me. When I am ready to move on we don’t waste time, and when some grammar or phrase isn’t sticking we take the time to get comfortable with it before moving on. I haven’t had a chance to visit the new office yet but it looks good in pictures and would be convenient for me in the city.

I've been taking Japanese lessons from Kumi just under a year now. I've always loved the Japanese culture and have been interested in learning Japanese. Kumi has been an amazing in the way she teaches Japanese, her approach is clear and easy to understand. She takes time to ensure that her students understand the content and can apply it beyond theclassroom.

Konnichiwhat is a great place to learn Japanese. I would highly recommend Kumi as a Sensei, she has made something that was extremely difficult and which made no sense to me, just in a short time seem so simple.ありがとうございます
