Ryoko Marumo

As a returnee who has lived in the U.S. since the age of 11, I know the benefits of education and culture from both of the world. Through 12 years of experience teaching Japanese and English, she I discovered a new way to teach language easily and accurately (F2L Method), and F2L Academy uses this method to accelerate communication skills and speed up the acquisition of Japanese through cultural understanding.

Tomoko Goto

I have been involved in teaching, curriculum planning/ Blended educational materials inside and ouside Japan.I strive for supporting students and teachers so that F2L Academy provides lessons where “you learn and practice Japanese you would want to use immediately after each class”., and where “teachers can maximize their values and experiences”! 

Rina Okada

I have always enjoyed learning foreign language ever since childhood but when I went to US to study and met friends learning Japanese so earnestly, I decided that one day I would become a Japanese teacher. After several years of business experience in tourism, I acquired certificate for teaching Japanese.I make my effort in delivering Japanese ICT materials and lessons that are easy to understand and practical for students.
I will continue to support students and teachers so they can learn and teach with fun and introduce such motivat programs provided by F2L to the world!

Based on my experience and knowledge through teaching, I have co-authored seven books, including a collection of questions for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test and a textbook on business Japanese.
Although I have retired from active teaching, I would be happy to continue helping the Japanese language education community in any way I can.

Feedback from past students


What was your motivation to learn, and why did you choose F2L Japanese

I wanted to pass JLPT N5 and prepared for JLPT N4. I have received many positive feedbacks from friends on F2L and Marumo sensei.


Private clients

What class are you taking now?

I have been studying Japanese while working, so I took private lessons to pass JLPT5, and now preparing for JLPT4 and Useful Expressions


Professional Firms

What do you like about the class, teacher, school ?

Marumo sensei understood my needs and my learning style.
She has been very helpful preparing for and passing the exam. My motivation to continue studying Japanese increases on every lesson I take.
She always goes beyond the textbook and enriches the teaching experience with cultural insight.
She answers all my questions and explains kanji meaning in a way I always understand.


Private clients

How have you improved since you started studying at F2L Tokyo?

When I started taking lesson with Marumo sensei I could speak little Japanese.
Now I feel more confident when speaking; I can articulate more sentences, read faster and can understand others more easily.


Professional Firms

Who would you recommend F2L T to?

I recommend F2L to everyone who aim preparing for JLPT but also anyone who wants to learn Japanese beyond the textbooks.



Is Japanese Challenging to Study? How can F2L help you?

I think F2L helps many western people like me who are unfamiliar with Japanese writing system, grammar structure and more importantly with the communication rules of the Japan society.
Ryoko Sensei, I love your amazing descriptions of Kanjis’ meaning and your precise explanations to all my questions.
You opened my mind to the japanese culture and Asian world and I will miss our coffe together, along with Cookie.
We should continue and to something together: Italy and Japan have so much in common, there are so many possibilities.
