About me

My name is Narcisz Botyanszki. I was born in 1977. I have decided to learn Japanese already very early, when I was 11 years old, and I have done everything to achieve this goal. In 2002 my biggest childhood dream came true: I got the chance to travel to Japan with a 1 year scholarship to study at the University of Foreign Studies in Osaka. This was one of the happiest years of my life. I have been working with Japanese language since then. I have started with teaching, and from December, 2005 to October, 2009 I have worked as a finance interpreter & translator at a Japanese company.  In October, 2009 I have started my own teaching & translating company as a freelancer. I teach private students, a group at a Japanese company and conduct project interpretations and translations.
