Sensei, aka Grethel, resides in Miami, Florida.

Read her message to you:

“A little over 9 years ago I embarked on a journey to learn Japanese. As you can imagine, it was no easy task. The reality is that at times I thought learning Japanese was a challenge far too big for someone like me who had zero knowledge of this exotic language. Instinctively, I knew that if I wanted to learn Japanese I would have to make it fun and engaging for myself…….but that was easier said than done since I had no set structure or organization. It is one thing to want to learn a language and another to know how to go about it in order to learn it efficiently. So, needless to say, I struggled for about 2 years during the initial period of learning due to not having the “know how”.

Naturally, it does take time to learn a language but there are a few very important things you can do to make learning more efficient for you. That’s where I come in!

Ultimately, thanks to my own struggles I can now help make it easier for you to tackle the Japanese language through effective lessons that will keep you engaged so that you may build a solid foundation on which to continue building on.
