About me

Hi there!

Nice to meet you!

I'm Yumi, and some of my friends call me Yumi the human dynamo, lol. I get a kick out of people calling me like that.
I'm very optimistic and love making efforts to make my dreams come true. My favorite quote is "Where there is a will, there is a way." So, I've believed that after I make efforts a lot, I can reach my goals! My dreams relate to my English skills and that's why I've been learning conversational English. When I say something positive, some of my friends say it's a Yumi-ism! I also love the term.

I'm a china painter and sometimes to study abroad in America to improve both my painting skills and English skills. When I take some painting classes in America, I can improve my English comprehension skills at the same time. I really think it's killing two birds with one stone. I haven't taken any conversational lessons in English in Japan, but I have several good international friends all over the world. While speaking with them in English, I've been trying to improve my communication abilities.

I live in Japan with my husband, daughter and pet dog and cat, and I've been spending a wonderful time with them every single day.

I’ve been blogging in English here. http://yumiyumayume.wordpress.com/
If you have extra time, please leave your comment. I’ve been introducing about Japanese culture there.

Thanks for checking out my page. If you are a Japanese learner and want to improve your comprehension skills, I can help you in both English and Japanese. So, please contact me. Let’s help each other!

Here is my art blog. http://sommerstein0411.wordpress.com/
I've managed my homepage: http://yumiyumayume.weebly.com/

I sometimes help my friend from Texas to make his podcast as his podcast guest. You can listen to our conversations in English here: http://www.evilenglish.net/podcast-2/

Testimonials from My Friends

daisy
She is so great! I love her painting.
DCHans84
I'm so grateful to be one of Yumi's Lang-8 friends! She has been very helpful so far and I appreciate her corrections on my journal entries. And she has beautiful painting skills :D I'm a bit reluctant to correct her entries because I think she conveys her ideas in English quite well!
