    Dear native English speakers,
    I have another question.

    Which sentence would be used? (b) and (d)?

    (a) The American woman I teach Japanese is from Seattle.
    (b) The American woman I teach Japanese to is from Seattle.
    (c) I teach an American woman from Seattle Japanese.
    (d) I teach Japanese to an American woman from Seattle.

    Thanks in advance.

    Probably all of them, because a and c are substituting the indirect object, i.e instead of saying "I teach Japanese to her" you could say "I teach her Japanese", and which in fact would be more natural.

    I would use (d) because it's clear and concise.
