Introduction:

English conversation practice and business communication skills

What is your reason for learning English? Do you need to improve your conversation skills for your career? Do you love to travel, and want to improve your confidence when talking to native English speakers? Whatever your reason, I want to practice English conversation with you in a way that helps you achieve your goals.

My name is Dan. I'm from Michigan in the United States, but I have been living in Tokyo for nearly a year. I am currently studying at a Japanese language school, so I understand that learning a new language can be challenging but rewarding!

I have ten years of experience working in global businesses, so I would be happy to help you practice Business English or review professional materials including resumes or presentations. Outside of work, I love travel, food, cooking, sports, games, and more, so I would love to speak with you about any of your hobbies.

I prefer to practice speaking with you according to your own interests. Feel free to talk to me about anything! This can be casual conversation, or we can role play and practice specific scenarios to help answer your questions. Certainly, if you use your own study guides (books, newspapers, websites, podcasts, etc.) and want assistance to learn the material, I would be happy to help.
