Private lessons for disability person in Tokyo

I look for a tutor teacher who teaches me English. But I have hearing problem. If I wear hearing aids, I can hear some sounds, but I can't undestand words. It's close to deaf levels. I've tried to apply private lessons through websites, I couldn't find. Their answer: I've never had any experience to teach English for disability people, I can't help you." I want to learn two things. I'm planning to live in foreign countries. I'd like to improve my reading and writing, chatting by writing. And, as much as I can, I'd like to try learn lip-reading and pronunciation. I don't know how to find. Could up give me any information?

I'm a Japanese girl. I love watching dramas/movies, reading books, cooking, surfing on the Internet , photography and swimming.
I really like learning foreign languages! I focus on learning English and sign language, but I used to learn Greek and Turkish before.

    That's difficult... Maybe an American Sign Language teacher would be helpful? I recommend using a site like https://ja.duolingo.com/ to improve reading and writing, finding online friends who you can chat with in English, and watching movies in English to practice lip reading. These (Rachel's English on Youtube) pronunciation videos with subtitles are really good: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvn_XCl_mgQmt3sD753zdJA Good luck!

    Similar to helloalissa's suggestion, maybe you could ask around a group like Japanese ASL Signers Society: http://www.npojass.org/english Maybe they might have some contacts or know of some teachers who can help.

    The eikaiwa Gaba has one-on-one (man-to-man) lessons, so they are personalised just for you. They have some disabled students, but I don't know about deaf students. Maybe you can have a free trial lesson with them to try?

Tips for a trip to Nagasaki/Fukuoka/Saga/Oita?

We're trying to head down to Kyushu for a little break later this year, and if you've been to any of the abovementioned prefectures before (or even live there!) I'd love to hear your suggestions for cool things to do and see - preferably the cool spots that guidebooks or online resources might not cover! Thanks in advance!

Living in Miyahara-shi

I have been asked to consider a role that is based in Miyahara-shi. If I went for this job I would be on my own (family will not be able to move initially). Would be good to get some idea of any expat community or life in the area. Whilst I have some very rusty and basic speaking Japanese I would need to be able to communicate at least in the early days in English. Any input?

Laundry doesn’t smell fresh

Hi guys! I was wondering about my laundry. We moved and got a new washing machine and I don’t smell the scent of the fabric softener. Is something wrong with the washing machine? I used this softener before in my parents washing machine and it works fine.
