Hello! My name is Ume. I was born in Japan. I work as a teacher/helper at a nursery school in Japan. Also I teach English to adults.
Somehow I felt that I couldn’t fit Japanese society when I was young so I studied English very hard and went to the UK.
I used to live in the UK for nearly 3 years altogether. I lived in Cardiff, Newport, Portsmouth and London. I also travelled around the UK and Europe.
I studied a bit about filmmaking when I was in the UK. I love films and also music very much. Many of my favorite bands are British bands. That experience made me stronger as a person.
I dont’ know why you are studying Japanese but whatever the reasons, I would like to help. I am not a qualified teacher but I studied to become a Japanese teacher and did some lessons as a volunteer.
Originally I was planning to do some online lessons but now I just write blog in Japanese and English unless there is a request for lessons.
This website is for Japanese learners just like my YouTube channel but it would be great if many others read it too.
