‘Hiroko-sensei was extremely reliable, and also an incredibly enthusiastic & engaging Japanese tutor. The lessons were enjoyable and effective, and I think that the thing is that she does genuinely care, and really wants you to fulfil your potential, and I think she really helped me to do that.’

Until I realised – it has to be FUN & INTERESTING – or it just doesn’t get done!

That’s why I wrote this FREE PDF playbook. Fill-in-the-blanks to discover your unique motivation & make your OMOSHIROI plan.
