“Helped me gain confidence”

After many failed attempts to use online and other teaching tools, finally this course helped me gain confidence in spoken and written Japanese.

“Highly recommended”

“Fran's Japanese classes are fun and accessible - highly recommended.”

“Great lessons, with a variety of tasks and activities which motivated me [to] speak in Japanese. Fran's lessons were thoroughly prepared and thought through with a just-right amount of homework which kept me busy revising what I learned at home. Fran is a great teacher, very approachable and really knowing her subject.”

"Excellent course”

“Excellent course that massively improved my Japanese.”

— Joe, 2017

“After each lesson, I find myself keen to learn more

“Fran's classes are, at their core, fun and friendly, making the process of learning enjoyable and digestible. As a teacher, Fran is supportive and the work she provides is motivating, always tempered just right: never impossibly challenging, but always tempting you to step out of your comfort zone to try something new. After each lesson, I find myself keen to learn more and always looking forward to the next class.”

— David, 2017

 

“Relaxed and fun”

“The lessons are relaxed and fun (great if you find things like this intimidating like me). Fran is super knowledgeable and quick feedback makes Step Up lessons so much more useful than online or textbook learning.”

— Mark, 2017

I made more progress in the first few lessons than an entire previous year of attempted self-learning.

“Fran does an excellent job of keeping the tone of lessons very light, making what could easily become very intimidating subject matter into something that feels very accessible and achievable. I made more progress in the first few lessons than an entire previous year of attempted self-learning.”
