Testimonials from My Friends

Makoto B
Paco-san is excellent about her explanations when she corrects your entries. They are detailed corrections, and she is very through when she corrects. Not only that, she gives alternate ways of writing out a sentence, which is very helpful in making one's language flexible. From her corrections I have learned a lot about Japanese, and it's been very helpful when I speak and write the language. She also has interesting and informed comments when she corrects, and her own entries are useful when trying to practice reading Japanese. By far, she's easily one of the best resources on this site.

You have the gift to catch people's attention, all your entries amuses me and everyone else! You are awesome! Thanks for all your help and dedication!
One of the most helpful people on this site! Always weighs in on things with a really informed opinion in Japanese, which further helps :)
I am very thankful to Pacoさん! Not only she always carefully correct my entries, but also writes very interesting comments. Needless to say, also what she writes in her journal is extremely interesting, and what's more she writes bilingually, which is an exceptionally good help for me. ありがとうございますPacoさん!頑張ってくれ!I hope you will decide to get back writing in Italian!
