Impression of a participant

Online Course (Taking the online Course for beginners via Zoom from the Germany)

Mr.Paul

I applied for the course to be prepared for when I get to japan to be a bit more flexible on exploring on my own. The way we went true all the lectures was pretty good but because it was online there were some things that could have been better connecting wise wich is nothing bad on your part but I think if I have been taking the classes in japan with kondo sensei in one room more questions could have been answered better. All in all it was a really good and helpful course and I would recommend it to everyone that has no experience in the Japanese language

I liked that we were a small course so the teacher could help us individually. The text book has a good structure aswell.
