Hi, my name is Michelle Yamamoto.


I was born in California USA and was
brought up in Japan, UK, France and
Germany. My love for learning new
languages comes directly from my love of
getting to know more people and more
culture.
I hope that the new episodes of Easy
Japanese will help you learn both the
language and the fascinating culture
Japan has to offer you!

Hello everyone, Im Jonathan Sherr.


I was born in the state of California in the
USA just like Michelle, but spent much of
my time growing up in Iowa. I have lived in
Japan since 1998, and knowing how to
speak Japanese has enriched my
experience immensely!
It is my sincere hope that Easy Japanese is
the beginning of a wonderful journey for
you. And, above all, I hope that you have
fun!
