You Can Learn Japanese on Skype!

My name Yuko and I have been helping people to learn Japanese on Skype and in-person. During the lessons, I first use English in explaining and gradually increase Japanese. I am from Japan and have a 30+ years of experience in teaching all levels.

Whatever your purpose of learning is, and whatever your level is, let me try to help you. It will be a wonderful experience for both of us.
