Yes, student needs to pay
If the lesson is is outside my teaching area, the student needs to pay for my transport costs from my closest station. However, if it is within my area, students are not required to pay for my transport.
I am Hannah from Austria (Vienna).
My native language is German, but I also speak English and conversational Japanese. Right now I am studying as an exchange student about Japanese culture. I like watching dramas, listening to music and singing, but also a lot of other activities. During my stay in Japan, I want to get as much experience as possible!
With English and German, apart from grammar, I like to focus on speaking, because I think it is important to actually have speaking practice!
But of course depending on what you want to learn ^.^
Requests are welcome.
