Comment: Best professor I've had at Berkeley. She genuinely cares about her students, and though the class has daily quizzes and homework, those were crucial to my understanding of the material. It's a faced paced class, but Komatsu Sensei goes out of her way to make sure students are keeping up and have their questions answered. She really pushed me to do my best and continue my Japanese studies.

Comment: Hands down the best class I took so far in Berkeley. There were only 8 of us in the class, so it felt like a family by the end of the semester. Professor Komatsu is amazing.

Comment: My teachers were Knickerbocker Sensei and Komatsu Sensei. They were both wonderful, caring teachers. For our final speech project, they always made us sign up for one-on-one office hour appointments to make sure we were on the right track. There were daily assignments and quizzes/tests every other day, but those were pretty straightforward and weren't too difficult. They're very approachable teachers with a clear syllabus for the class. Also, there's no final during finals week.
