I’ll mute all viewers’ microphones. Please join in the lesson using the chat function.

I’ll post some Japanese quizzes using Zoom’s polling function during the lesson, too.

After the class, I will send the summary of the lesson as Google Docs.

*The quizzes (polling) in the lesson and the summary are only for the attendees of the lesson. They’re not shared on YouTube.

YouTube and Patreon

I’m making a video of each live lesson for YouTube after doing the live lesson so that the attendees can review the lesson and people who can’t join the lesson can watch the lesson, too.

Because of that, I’m starting Patreon, too. The udon and ramen patrons get early access to videos!

Thanks to you, I’ve really enjoyed Twitter. YouTube is another big challenge for me in 2020.
Yes, YouTube is very different from Twitter. I need to improve my skills for making and editing videos.
My live lessons and YouTube videos will be adjusting based on how things work and user feedback. Please let me know what you think on Patreon’s chat.

With your support, I can make more online lessons and content.
Thank you so much for your support!
