Yumi SATO

I’m Yumi.I’m from Osaka.
I worked as an accountant at the company for 11 years. There were several foreign colleagues in the same department. They were very good at Japanese, so we could communicate. But if we were speaking different languages, we didn’t know the person’s personality or way of thinking. Just by speaking the same language, we can understand each other even if we are from a different country.

Therefore, I became interested in Japanese language coach. I’m looking forward to the day when we can speak in Japanese.
Let’s study hard together.
