Comment: Kambara 先生 was the best! She clearly cares about her students and made me really want to learn Japanese. When you take J1A, you actually have three teachers (depending on the day of the week), but all of them are enthusiastic and helpful, so don't worry. Highly recommend!

Comment: The teaching was great and the class was pretty good. However, the class doesn't fit well with those who have busy schedules and are interviewing for jobs. It would be better if they had a slower pace version for those who can't dedicate more than 5-10 hrs a week.

Comment: Both paper homework and bSpace homework were a breeze; easy 100%s. She's an extremely enthusiastic instructor, but often the pace of the course is too accelerated compared to a high school language course. There are no curves and exams are often difficult. There is much syntax and memorization with the class. Expect to spend your weekends memorizing 70 new characters for those vocab quizzes each Monday and your Thursday evenings into Friday morning studying for either a listening or written quiz.

Comment: She is the "head professor" for the J1A program. Very helpful and genuine. Strict with rules/guidelines, no excuses.
