  1. Raja kuma sensei,
    Thank you for a very interesting seminar “flipped learning” yesterday.
    You are a dynamic teacher and I wondered how you learned your nihongo yourself.

    • Dear Yuriko,
      Thanks for coming to the seminar last week. I actually learned Japanese initially as an exchange student in Japan for a year, then I studied at university and returned to Japan after my studies for a two year stint teaching English. However I would love to return and have the opportunity to improve my Japanese!
      Best wishes,

    • Hi Kae! Yes – it is Anne from Australia. It is lovely to hear from you. Where are you living now? Are you still illustrating books?

  2. Hi, Ronny

    I happened to come across some of the teaching materials designed by you / your team which I find really useful. I wonder if you could provide me with some hints as to where I can source some listening materials (for the mock exam or just general practice) for the IB Ab Initio Japanese program, listening scripts which are about 2, 2.5 and/or 3 min as suggested by the IB exam syllabus guideline.
