Risa, I enjoy your video as you are a cheerful and pleasant looking lady with a lot of energy. But you seem to hurry as if you want to finish the lesson in record time. Its not conducive to learning Japanese by an average learner trying to grasp the language new to him. Unfortunately, your video does not allow a slower pace of play back thus allowing me to absorb the material in the prescribed time.
