1) How old is Tanaka-san? He is 48 years old.

2) Who is that person over there?

3) Yamada-san is an employee of IBM.

4) I came from Japan.

5) Miller-san is a teacher. Is Tanaka-san also a teacher?

Jasmine, for what level?
If u have genuine conditions that refrain you from not being able to attend classes, i do offer free lessons for those needy students. However, there is a commitment to attend all lessons unless u are on medical leave.

pls pm me for more info
