Hajimemashite. My name is Shizuka Seyama.

My name is slightly rare since it has both Hiragana and Kanji in it. Because it is read as 'shizuka', people tend to know me as ' the teacher with the same name as Shizuka chan' – (a character in the popular cartoon Doraemon), or because 'shizuka' also means quiet in Japanese, people tend to know me as 'the lively teacher even though her name means quiet'.

I am from Saga prefecture. I lived in Tokyo for a long time but in 2013 I moved back to my hometown. I love the lively city of Tokyo as well as the quiet city of Saga.

My hobbies are reading books, singing, and painting.
In my class it is alright to make mistakes. Failure teaches success!!
Let's share many laughs together while we study Japanese together ♪
