Testimonials from My Friends

Mirai's kind words of encouragement and precise corrections are one of the main reasons I have continued to use this site over two years. She's always willing to speak what's on her mind, and always writes some of the most interesting entries I've read on this website. She's been a great teacher and friend here, and I think anyone who is learning Japanese could benefit from her help.
Mirai is one of my oldest Lang-8 friends. She is a constant source of new information about Japanese, and she strives to utilise new language. There are few people who try as hard as she to improve their language skills, and I feel lucky that she is here to help me everyday.
mirai writes about things I wouldn't think of writing about (in a good way). She is very open and it shows with her writing. Her style is very interesting and draws readers in. Her correction are great because she not only correct, but explains why she corrects it. I hope to be as good as she is in English (but in my case in Japanese). I believe mirai (along with other Lang-8 members) will be one of those people that will contribute to my goal in Japanese fluency ^_^
Mirai always writes honest journals that consider many perspectives. She freely shares her thoughts with us without hiding anything and always takes the time to reply personally to our comments. Also you'll notice her journals usually have a picture attached which is relevant to the topic being discussed. It is all part of the experience you will enjoy when you visit Mirai's journals. ^_^
Mira's journals are always interesting, fun and informative. She gives super awesome corrections and has been a great friend. Thank you for the experience!
