My learning goals

I’d like to speak English fluently mainly but I'm interested in other languages too. Phone calling and video chat are OK! If you live in Japan, I want to talk and study with you face to face at cafes or somewhere

My favorite topics

Speaking is the fastest way to fluency

Practice listening, improve your pronunciation, and learn to speak a foreign language with native speakers – no matter where you are.
