Yasuko is also one of my favorite students. She is serious about improving her ability to speak, listen, and read. She has been taking two courses with me for quite a long time – the Normal course for speaking, and One-on-One for reading. She has shown lots of improvement, especially in her overall confidence…I remember her first lesson when she seemed to be scared to death… Now she speaks without fear, takes lots of chances with the language, uses different techniques to get her point across, and is able to communicate very well. She is a roll model student in my school and a total pleasure to teach!
