We, the teachers from Nihongo Picnic just had a meeting for the JLPT class. One of our teachers Kumi explained how she teaches the JLPT class. Kumi has lots of experience in teaching the JLPT and her knowledge is amazing. I was so impressed.

2. Can we talk on the phone quickly before having a Zoom meeting? We are not sure if your tiny, new and little-known company can afford to contract with our services. If you can’t, we don’t want to waste time. I’m learning a lot everyday. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Asking for a friend (and also kinda for myself): Anyone know of neat Japanese novels from the past two decades, featuring LGBT themes/characters?

Chiharu is teaching advanced conversation class at Nihongo Picnic and I joined her class today. The atmosphere was great and everyone talked a lot. 2 students gave a talk about Japanese slang expressions and they were really interesting, too. 👏🏼💯

watching anime with subs is a great way to learn useful Japanese phrases, such as "hagane no renkinjutsushi"

In my high-intermediate class, this week we read and talked about Toyota Woven City. ・Benefits and risks ? ・Privacy? ・Cost? It was another very interesting discussion! 🏙

I don’t think treating adult students like children at language school is OK. Giving honest advice/feedback to the students should be important, but it’s different from talking to them as if they’re talking to children.
