Testimonials from My Friends

Lynkusu
tst is awesome. For one thing, his entries are always super interesting and thought-provoking, and he thinks deeply about a multitude of topics. You can learn a lot from his entries. On top of that, though, his corrections are also some of the best on this site. He's strict and won't let you get away with saying grammatically correct but awkward-sounding sentences. As a professional translator, he can expertly turn your original English sentences into flawlessly natural Japanese. He explains his corrections in detail, so you learn A LOT from his corrections. He's an awesome guy that I'm glad to have met!

tst is an awesome language partner. He's willing and able to explain things thoroughly and give you a reason as to WHY he made a correction. He's able to figure out what you ACTUALLY wanted to express even if you made a grammatical error and show you the right way to express your own unique ideas. As a plus, his English is so great, he can explain in English and Japanese easily. Contrary to some other users, he's very forward with his opinions but always willing to explain his beliefs honestly. His journal topics are always very informative about Japanese language, culture, or just something about the man himself. I've never been bored reading his entries. I've grown a lot since studying with tst and I hope to grow even more moving forward.

tst is a wonderful and interesting person. His entries are one of the most intriguing and thought-provoking I've found at this site. Besides his entries, I am very glad to have him as a friend. His corrections help me to convey what I really wanted to say, and his comments allowed me to know more about him and Japanese culture, sometimes, as well as human nature itself. He is a friend you would definitely want to have in your journey of language learning. ^^
