  • Thank you Risa for all the effort. The way of your teaching is really helpful. I hope you have a wonderful day.

  • I'm in japan now right,I have to say Japanese is so difficult even after I have learned it for about 2 years at home,my goal is to be able to speak like a native in this year.

  • Hey there. Thanks for this awesome video! The more complex sentence structures and vocabs were pretty helpful, I learned a lot. Is there any particular reason why you are using the 観る kanji and not the 見る kanji?

    Can you please consider making a video about alternative kanjis. When I read manga or texts without 振り仮名 I often come across kanjis I dont understand and when I look them up they are just a lesser known alternativ. Why do japanese people do this?

  • Number 5 was hilarious and 7 seemed to be more of a romantic letter for the one you have a crush wish all of your lessons would include this teaching method that'll make an extremely pleasant learning experience! 👌🤗
