She was a TA (Teachers’ Assistant) at an elementary school, where she gave a lot of insight about India and captured students’ interest. Ms. Lata has passed Level 1 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT). She is a friendly and wonderful teacher who has a sincere approach in teaching Japanese language.

ラタさんとは仕事で知り合いました。私が勤める会社がインドに進出し、日本式の サービスをインドに広めたいと毎日奮闘していた時でした。 ラタさんは通訳として活躍してくださいました。 ラタさんの凄いところは、契約や、来賓を招いての大事なパーティーでの通訳を完 璧にこなしてくれた事です。 まさにラタさんがインドと日本の架け橋になってくれました。 更に、ラタさんは日本の文化にとても敬意と、理解をしてくれています。 ラタさんを見ていると、外国語を学ぶ際の大切な事を教えてくれます。国の文化や 、歴史、国民を深く理解する事が、言語上達の近道だと教えてくれる、そんな意志 を持っている方です。 ラタさんとは仕事で出会いましたが、N1級に合格した時、一緒に喜んだことを今で も鮮明に覚えています。いつしか親友になっていました。 人間的にも優れているラタさんに日本語を教えてもらえる生徒は、とても幸せだと 思います。
I met Ms. Lata at work. The company I worked for was expanding into India, and we were striving every day to popularize Japanese-style services in India. Ms. Lata worked as an interpreter for us. She was impeccable in her interpretation of contract agreements and at important meetings with dignitaries. She was truly a bridge between India and Japan. Ms. Lata has great respect and understanding for Japanese culture.
She has taught me an important aspect of learning a foreign language, which is, ‘Having deep understanding of a country’s culture, history, and people is a shortcut to improve your language skills’. She is a kind of a person who has always been determined to achieve this. I met Ms. Lata through work, but I still vividly remember the joy we had shared together when she passed the N1 level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. Soon, we became good friends. Ms. Lata has excellent qualities not only as a Japanese language professional, but also as a human being, and students who learn Japanese language under her guidance are fortunate.

I learnt Japanese language from Lata Sensei for two years and passed Japanese Language Proficiency Test level N4 and N3 under her guidance. I am a huge fan of her teaching methods and teaching materials. What I like the most about her is that while training students on Japanese language, she also introduces them to Japanese culture and business etiquette that are absolutely essential when someone aspires to work in a Japanese company. Her interactive classes were fun filled and joyous!

I had the pleasure and good fortune of pursuing my N3 and N2 with Lata sensei and I can’t be more thankful. Each of us has a different motivation for studying Japanese and Lata sensei takes that into cognisance while bringing the whole group together. With a holistic teaching approach, she ensures we are not only adequately ready for the exam but also equipped enough for real-life situations. Her sessions are educational and enjoyable, and I would look forward to the next class regardless of how busy the week has been. Her near-encyclopaedic hold over the language coupled with a choice selection of study aids will ensure you have a solid foundation to build on. I would positively recommend Lata Sensei to anyone who wants to truly learn the language integrated with a cultural understanding.!

I continued my Japanese language training after I returned from my stay in Japan. I passed Japanese Language Proficiency Test level N4 under Lata Sensei’s guidance. Her speciality is that she helps students to connect their mother tongue to Japanese language which makes learning easier. I have also noticed that she goes an extra mile to help students.!

Lata Sensei’s vast knowledge, experience with living and working in Japan, about the Japanese culture, and language helped me learn a lot and gain confidence during my journey. As she has a background knowledge of both Indian and Japanese customs, culture and traditions it is easy to understand her while she conveys Japanese ideas. I am lucky to meet such a supportive and well rounded teacher. \(^0^)/ ラタ先生、バンザイ！
I found Lata Sensei’s classes pretty fun, lively and interesting. (そうそう面白くてにぎやか ですね) Apart from following the textbook, she covers more culture, daily conversation and interactions. I believe in her friendly approach to teaching and learning as we get a feel for everyday casual Japanese. It is more important to have practical knowledge than the theories in the textbooks.There is a lot more that I can’t possibly make this too long. 笑 I hope to keep learning more from you in the future! これからもよろしくおねがいします ！
It would not have been possible for me to clear JLPT N2 without the coaching and training of Lata Sensei. Her way of coaching was superb which was the key for me to learn the nuances of the Japanese language, particularly solving complicated Dokkai. She is an expert in making us understand the complicated portions by giving relevant examples on the spot. Her classes are always very lively, interesting, and interactive. The most helpful aspects for me in clearing the N2 were the regular weekly Kaiwa sessions and mock tests conducted by Lata Sensei. In addition, her continuous guidance by regularly sending plenty of learning materials and model question papers, apart from the books we followed in the class, was also instrumental in cracking the N2. Sensei is easily approachable and always available at any time to clear our doubts.
ラタ 先生のおかげで, JLPT N2 を合格しました。どうも有難う御座いました。”
I have learnt Japanese language from Lata Sensei for over a year and I feel quite blessed to be a student under her care and guidance. She takes care of all the students in the class, helping us learn and grow in whichever areas we seem to be lacking in. She makes Japanese language and grammar easy and methodical to understand, learn and try to use in daily life.
