It’s really fortunate for us that there are some people in our company who are kind enough to provide us Japanese lessons. These kind of lessons usually cost around Php8,000. And they are just generous enough to give it to us for FREE!
And as a bonus, the sessions that I attended, the teacher (Ghe) is superb! She is very engaging, energetic & extremely good in my opinion. It really made us be so attentive in the Japanese class. For that alone, I’m so thankful that I joined.
Here are what we learned so far:
