Yup, we do have dealings with them already but because no one speaks Japanese on my side, so they usually communicate in English.

Does your relative good in computer / internet, and also can read Chinese traditional characters?

I'm asking this, because I'm also learning Japanese in Chinese language.

However, I'm learning Japanese with a Taiwanese teacher.

He has online courses, from beginning up to N1 level.

I bought the course, and whenever I want to learn, I just opened the course and learn. Anytime, even midnight too.

And no, the course bought will not expire. If I bought last year, I still can learn the course this year or next year.

I'm learning from him because:

1. I couldn't find learning Japanese course in Chinese language over here in Singapore.
2. The course is much cheaper as compared to here (about 30% - 50% cheaper).
3. I can learn anytime I want.
4. He teaches a lot of things which typical textbook doesn't teach.

Btw, sometimes he might also do FB live, have a few questions asked by students, and explained the questions and why the answer is this and not that.... This is usually on Sunday nights, 9 pm.

Oh ya, currently he also has published 4 learning Japanese books, and seems like 2 more are also confirmed to be published.


Hi, do u mind pm me for the details on website etc? Thanks!

Is Ikoma good to learn Japanese language?

Took their N2 prep class last year. Thankfully passed. So they're definitely good. I used to attend regularly 10 years ago for their pre advanced and also JLPT 3 Prep. Only thing is their classes aren't cheap..

Each class is focused on grammar,vocab,listening,comprehension. If you want conversation, then you'll be better suited in their other classes. Since this is geared towards exams.

Hi. Does anyone know if there's any difference between ある and 持っている?
For example: 自分の意見がある vs 自分の意見を持っている

one is "have", the other is "carry"

「ある」: 不一定拥有所有权
「持っている」: 则指某物在自己名下

Thank you sensei.

So 持っている is more appropriate in the example I gave?

Am I also right to say that ある is more concerned with the existence state while 持っている is more concerned with owning?
