Speaking Japanese can change yourself💯

🌟Check out an amazing story of JLF student Rodney Plant🌟

Transformation from a Quiet Foreigner to a Confident Communicator in Japan!!

Rodney Plant, a US national living in Yokohama, Japan, encountered significant linguistic hurdles despite having a Japanese wife his extensive tenure in the country and frequent visits over ten years. After struggling with self-study approaches via books and apps, he enrolled in the Master Course at Japan Language Factory (JLF) to master Japanese speaking skills and address specific communication goals.


Before JLF, Rodney faced challenges in understanding fast-paced conversations and struggled to confidently articulate his thoughts due to an excessive focus on grammar. His primary objectives for joining the Master Course were to engage effectively with his son’s future teachers, navigate medical assistance, and rekindle his involvement in hobby clubs.


At JLF, Rodney immersed himself in an immersive speaking-based approach that shifted his focus from theoretical concepts to practical application. Through tailored training, he shed his inhibitions, gradually acquiring the confidence to engage in spontaneous conversations while letting go of excessive grammar concerns.


During his studies, a critical turning point occurred when he confidently used the phrase “家を探しています” (ie o sagashiteimasu) to independently communicate with a real estate agent, marking a significant milestone in his speaking journey.


Today, Rodney proudly shares, “Here’s a guy who couldn’t put two words together, and now I’m doing everything. I’m going to the stores; I went to a real estate agent by myself, completely on my own.”


His transformation is not just limited to language proficiency but also extends to real-world accomplishments. With newfound fluency, he is currently in the process of acquiring a family home in Japan—a testament to the monumental strides made through the JLF Master Course.


Rodney’s story is a hearty congratulations to his dedication and the transformative power of communication. It serves as an inspiration to all, a reminder that the paths to learning and connection are there for those willing to take the first step. The success of someone like Rodney illustrates a profound truth—language is not just a tool for conversation but a key that unlocks new dimensions of life in a foreign land.
