"Yas is very friendly, hard work, tension in details, experienced teacher. He taught Japanese to my son many years via the internet or occasionally face to face. He prepared each lesson based on my son's level and progress, and made valuable suggestions and recommendations for his outside hour study. My son went to Japan twice by himself, he was able to communicate to the local people so very much enjoyed his journeys."
