I was so thankful to find Yuko Sensei's course! I have tried a lot of online courses to learn Japanese but they all seems to be so difficult, monotonous and boring to learn. But, with Yuko Sensei's courses, you'll immediately know it's easy to follow and fun to learn! She is also very supportive to her students. Just ask a question and she will respond back with lots of tips and encouragements! Plus, I got to try her lessons for free before signing up. Where else can you get Japanese lessons free with a Sensei who is there to support you? I highly recommend her courses! You will never regret taking it!
