  • Liberty is a great teacher. She made the class very engaging and shared her experience vividly. She is very knowledgeable and was always open to answering questions. It is a great course to get an introduction to Japanese - highly recommended :)
  • The tutor is fantastic
  • This course is most exciting being a completely new curriculum working from a brand new text. The trainer is fantastic - personable, knowledgeable and flexible - with an engaging teaching style and a thorough knowledge of the material. It's so good I completed the first stage twice back to back to really lock down the basics and enjoyed it just as thoroughly both times.
