Taylor is THE BEST. He's basically everything you could want in a language teacher —passionate, helpful, clear, knowledgable. You can tell he really loves japanese and wants you to succeed.He often infuses his class with interesting culture tidbits which is great. On top of all that you can tell he is a SUPER kind,sweet person. Take him if you can!

Not an easy class BUT he is extremely helpful in explaining and clarifying grammar and concepts. It is also a major help that English is his native language.

This guy is probably the best language teacher I've ever had. He explains his lessons very thoroughly and is very open to questions. It is a hard class, and you will need to study almost daily (especially for those who are only English speakers), but if you are serious and want to learn Japanese, he is the perfect teacher.

Taylor sensei is a very helpful teacher! He is fluent in both English and Japanese which makes the class easy to understand. It is necessary to try hard and study (afterall, you'll be learning a new language) but he will try to give you tips on how to memorize and understand. I loved the class and highly recommend it!

If you are hard working, willing to attend class everyday, then Taylor-Sensei is your man. I suggest just doing the work from the work book and dict-a-conversation, you should be fine. He does drop the lowest score of your grade. He does give you extra credit work if you do something in Japanese that improves it, Diary entry in Japanese and etc.

He is very nice, but his class isn't completely easy. i did very well in the beginning of the class, but i gradually got lazy and my test grades were getting lower... but theres a good side to it.... he drops the lowest quiz and tests... so thats a good thing.. hes a pretty nice guy too...

He's a good teacher, and you can tell he's really passionate about the language! You really have to study and know the kanji and do your study guide workbook though. it's not an easy class, but if you're serious you'll do good! And he's always teaching extra little things that arent on the tests, so you can learn a lot more if you listen!

Mr. Taylor is an awesome instructor. He speaks clearly in both english and japanese. His tests and quizzes are not that hard but you still need to study, do homework, do your workbook, and memorize alot of kanji. He is very passionate about the material and it shows. I wish he taught japanese 3 & 4.

Taylor-sensei is a outstanding teacher who really cares to help students. He is a great language teacher and can really teach japanese well. i definitely recommend him if you are starting out in japanese. He can teach the language very clear in English, not like some native japanese teachers.
