8 years!

It was 8 years ago that we opened Be & Me in Shinsaibashi. Wow!

Our first student was Masahiro, a shy young University student who dreamed of travelling the world. His first lesson was 8 years ago today

Masahiro – 8 year ago today!

In Golden Week, we met Masahiro & his girlfriend Chika for dinner at Ola Tacos Bar, in Shinsaibashi. Masahiro has been living and working in New Zealand for the last 5 years, and now speaks excellent English!

Having achieved one big goal – living in another country – Masahiro & Chika are working on another big one: They’re planning to open their own Sushi restaurant in Australia. Go for it guys!

Before we opened Be & Me, we were teaching students privately in our apartment. When we opened the school, those students joined Be & Me. Two of those students are still studying with us! Thank you, Kazuya! Thank you, Yoshi!

Thank you to all the students of Be & Me – past & present! We’ve had a great time teaching you all, and look forward to many more great lessons together! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
