Testimonials from My Friends

Mr. Akira is a sophisticated gentleman who has probably read more books in English than the average American. His topics are always interesting and I always learn something. In regards to his corrections, he will make your Japanese sound really elegant and stylish. He always shows you additional ways to express the same ideas to fit your tastes. In short, he’s an awesome language partner!
