Dear Sir or Madam, I've seen the website of your Japanese courses for beginners. I've been studying Japanese by myself for three months, and now I would like to get into contact with real teachers. Your course seems perfect for my aims, notably because of the importance you give to conversation (even between beginners) and writing as ways of having a better understanding of the language's structure. Would you still have any places for the course starting the 1rst June? If yes, could you give me some instructions about the preparation tasks that are mentioned at the website? Thank you for your help, Regards, Clarissa
