Farewell to 2023!

Posted: 15th Dec 2023


Yesterday was the last day of classes in 2023 (can you believe it?!), meaning Ippo Ippo is on winter break until Wed 3rd Jan.

2023 has honestly been full of ups and downs, but it's definitely the ups I remember the most now we're approaching the end of the year.

Thank to you all of my students for being so excellent even as we plod on through this cold, dark time of year. I hope you have a wonderful festive season!

良いお年を!(Yoi o-toshi wo! Have a good new year!)

エリー (Elly)

PS You may have noticed an update on my website about my teaching hours. I explained this in my newsletter the other week and will also be sharing a post here on my blog in the new year about what you can expect from Ippo Ippo in 2024. Until then!
