Ishikawa Kana

Ishihara Kana

I am a violinist. I started IHCWAY lessons just because I liked learning languages, but I improved drastically and now am aiming to become an English teacher.


Where her lessons are held

have lessons at coffee shops and my teacher's place. Since I can have lessons wherever is convenient for us, I can continue even when I am busy. I also have another teacher who teaches me French.

About her teacher

Since my teacher likes music as well, we enjoy having conversations about concerts and live shows.

Lessons

I really appreciate the one-to-one lesson format. Amazingly within 10 months, I passed an interview for the position of an assistant teacher at the International School! Now I am aiming to become an English teacher.

I joined IHCWAY soon after it was established. I had 2 teachers, English and French and learn from them once a week. Amazingly, I passed an interview for a position of an assistant teacher at one International School 10 months after I started lessons. Since all the lessons are one to one basis, I am able to concentrate far more than group lessons. It is not embarrassing at all making mistakes, can talk without hesitation and my teacher never gets tired of teaching. I initially wanted to make my living by playing violin, but now I am so into English and French. I was able to use both languages a little bit, but I really did improve these past several months. Everybody such as my friends and staff from IHCWAY was surprised that I got the job at the International school. From what I have been told, it is not too easy to get this kind of job. Also, because of  the IHCWAY low tuition, I do not have to reduce my everyday expenses. Thank you so much!

I am planning on opening up A Japanese restaurant in New York in the near future!


Where her lessons are held

I enjoy having lessons at a Cafe every week.

About her teacher

I am such a beginner but I can see clearly my English skill is improving thanks to my teacher's fun lessons. I am so excited to see him every week.

Lessons

We especially focus on reading a picture story book. I try to be as close as possible to English native speaker's in terms of pronunciations, intonations, speed and so on.

I have continued learning for more than half a year, and I am always looking forward to seeing my teacher. Every lesson is held on a one to one basis so I can concentrate throughout lessons. I sometimes even extend the time because 60 minutes seems so short! Now, let me introduce my teacher, Michael. He can speak 4 languages, English, French, Italian, and German. He is so talented to teach these languages. I can see clearly that my language skill is improving thanks to his fun lessons! We often talk just freely in English but we focus on reading Disney Storybook as well. I try to be as close as English native speakers in terms of pronunciation, intonation, speed and so on. I am planning on opening up Japanese restaurant in New York in the near future.

IHCWAY staffs always encourage me studying hard so that I don't have to have a difficult time living in NY. I study a lot when I am home too. I really would like to appreciate Michael being so nice to me!

I graduated from a music college and now I am trying to be an opera singer.


Where her lessons are held

I learned Italian, and have another teacher for English too at a coffee shop.

About her teacher

Thanks to the one-to-one basis lessons, I could learn not only the Italian language but also about their thought, culture and life style through having intercultural communication with my teacher.

Lessons

I learned Italian pronunciations and grammar that are necessary for opera.

I graduated from a music college and now trying to be an opera singer. In order to achieve my dream I learned Italian from Elena. I have to say that she is a fantastic teacher. I was greatly impressed when she told me that my Italian skill significantly progressed at our very last lesson. Due to her job, she is now in Paris, France so I recently visited her. It was a lot of fun. IHCWAY is a language school but thanks to a one to one basis lessons, I could learn not only Italian but also their thought, culture and life style through having intercultural communication with my teacher. There are so many factors why I would recommend IHCWAY such as its low tuition, convenience, highly selected teachers, lessons that are customized for each student, but their best point is after all the homelike atmosphere that can provide a true intercultural communication. I still think of how much fun I had at each lesson. I realized acquiring English is also very important in this period of globalization so I now learn English as well as Italian. I have been learning for more than a year and I have to admit that lessons are so enriched in terms of not only enjoyment, but also its curriculum that allows me to progress my skills so rapidly. I really want to thank IHCWAY where they can entirely satisfy my needs.
