Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions.

Hope to see you soon!

Masters journalism (Hogeschool-Universiteit Brussel)

Experience / Qualifications

I’ve been teaching languages since 2016, especially Japanese. I started out as an absolute beginner myself in 2008, so I can sympathize with absolute beginners who want to understand this complex language.

As a teacher, I try to be a language coach. I’m here to help you reach your language goals, and to both support and challenge you along the way.

Zeer gestructureerd Oog voor detail Geduldig maar veeleisend De perfecte gids om deze wonderbaarlijke taal aan te leren
I specialize in teaching a breakthrough level of Japanese (A1 ERK). This course is ideal for someone who wants to study Japanese from the comfort of your home, with guidance from a teacher. Are you an absolute beginner who wants quick progress? Do you have a busy or unpredictable schedule? Or perhaps you prefer to stay at home because of the corona pandemic? Then this is the course for you. The lessons happen once a month. We do a little test at the beginning of every lesson and you get homework. Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions.

learn Japanese culture and language (all levels)
I studied Japanese, oral and written, for 10 years, including 2 years in Japan. I have a JLPTn2 as well as a bachelor's and a master's degree in Asian studies. In addition, I have experience as a teacher. My way of teaching Japanese is primarily aligned with the learner's objectives and the time he will have to devote to them. Whether it is grammar at all levels, discussion, reading, preparation for a trip to Japan, I will be happy to help.

Anna
Learn Japanese from a native speaker in Geneva center!
Konnichiwa! I am Japanese, born in Kyoto and raised in Japan. I have been teaching in companies and language schools daily conversational and business Japanese to students ranging from teenagers to company executives. Previously I worked for training companies to provide personalized learning programs. So in my lessons, I customize each course depending on the learner's level and needs, helping to achieve learning objectives. Also, I studied and worked in the US, China, Japan and Europe and I am interested in culture, traveling, art, technology, health, education etc... If you like to learn, feel free to contact me!

Japanese course for beginners, online, very flexible hours
Passionate about languages, I give introductory courses to the Japanese language. From 2021 I will only give lessons online. I have very flexible hours and can adapt to your needs, but preferably in the evening. My qualifications: I have a bachelor's degree in Japanese language and civilization (3 years of study), as well as a language certificate obtained at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies (1 year of study). I have been giving private lessons since 2016.

Ibtissam
Learn Chinese culture and language, communication, and learn character writing
Laureate of the Faculty of Letters and Human Sciences, Chinese Studies, at the Confucius Institute. Having the teaching of foreign languages and audiovisual as a part-time job allowed me to gain experience; I know this area well and I am competent to lead a course. By working with comrades of different nationalities (French, Chinese, English, American, African ...) in festivals and seminars I have well developed the competence of cross-cultural communication. My courses are aimed at young and old alike, from those who want to know the basics of Mandarin to those who prepare for competitions or who wish to improve their pronunciation / accent. I can also teach you to write Chinese symbols if you want. Depending on the objectives of each, I undertake to propose an adapted methodology, which can then be discussed in order to be optimized according to the requests. Smiling in life and serious at work. My studies and my stay in China allow me a good command of the Chinese language, a rich knowledge of the didactics of Chinese, as well as a strong communication capacity. In addition, I have a good level of Mandarin Chinese (level 1,2 3 and 4 in the oral and written Mandarin test which is called HSK and HSKK). My academic background in journalism allowed me to perfect my journalistic writing skills which encouraged me to write many articles in Simplified Chinese, as well as I developed my translation skills. Except the language, I will be able to explain Chinese calligraphy and Chinese culture (Chinese history, mythology, Buddhism, Taoism, etc.) to you at the same time. I developed these subjects for 3 years and presented in the university "SKEMA Business School" for one year. Besides the Chinese language course, you can also learn about my Chinese culture topics. It's up to you. In addition, I master 2 Chinese instruments, the bamboo flute (Dizi / 笛子) and Guqin (古琴). If you are interested, I will be happy to give you instructions. I also do martial arts, we can talk about it. I look forward to your message!

Shirley
English and Japanese lesson, Support for English homework
I specialise in tutoring language classes. I have a Master's Degree in Teaching of English as a Second Language and currently pursuing my PhD in Science of Education. I have also lived in Japan for 6 years and I have learned Japanese for two years in the university. Therefore I can teach Japanese for daily conversations. Owing to the fact that I speak 7 languages, I believe I understand the joy and struggle of language learning, which makes a good partner to learn a new language.

Anna
Languages: Russian, English, and Japanese (beginner)
I specialize on teaching spoken laguage on the first place. During our classes (especially Russian and English) we use mostly the taught languages to be able to make them applicable faster. I use different techniques during classes to make them interesting and challnging. You will be given homework and some unsupervised tasks for self-development.

Elie
I m teaching japanese language, tutoring, breakdance, piano
Japanese : Being specialized in comprehension and oral expression, my courses are for beginners and intermediate levels (JLPT level N5 to N3). I prefer the active method and give my classes entirely in Japanese, while adapting myself of course to the level of the students. The lessons will generally start with a warm-up before a lesson phase associated with practice, and then a written and / or oral exercise to consolidate learning. Dance : I propose to start each class with a music warm-up session, and then take what was seen in the previous class to understand the basics. The rest of the course will generally consist of games and choreographies to learn how to use the movements and figures learned before. During the last part of each class, I will encourage students to engage in improvisation and dance battles that characterize hip-hop dance. The courses will obviously end with compulsory stretching! :) I am a demanding teacher but who is especially there to encourage his students to embark on the track to have fun and relax!

Amandine
Do not be alone: Gain autonomy and ease in Japanese
My name is Amandine and I am a beginner Japanese teacher, specializing in the linguistic preparation of travel for 16-30 year olds. It has been 12 years since I returned from my stay in Japan. Over the years and feedback from my students, I have established a methodology and practical tools according to the objective of each: - To deepen the knowledge of the Japanese culture. - Acquire language bases in preparation for a trip (business / sabbatical year). - Prepare for exams (BAC, JLPT). - Analyze your mistakes to improve your results. - Improve your oral expression. - Advise on the steps to be taken / followed in relation to your project. Basically, I was not a student particularly gifted for foreign languages! I would have to wait until high school to trigger a keen need to get my dream: go to Japan! After high school, I did not study at all to be a teacher, translator or performer! * So why do I continue to devote my time to private lessons? * It all started with Marine looking for a host family to host Yuka for 3 months! A year later, I leave in exchange student in Japan living in immersion exclusively in host families, this is how: - I was admitted to the famous Kokugakuin High School. - I visited Tokyo, Kyoto and Niigata. - I became "ambassador" of France. - I won the 3rd place in the "speech contest" in Japanese, just behind the Thai and Taiwanese, facing 8 foreign students of all nationalities in long stay, just like me. On my return, I spent the JLPT N3 to certify my level by the Japanese institution! I really want to share this passion for those who have a crush on the land of the Rising Sun! * Who is my course for? * To those who have a concrete project related to the Japanese language. Whether you're starting from scratch or having notions, I'm here to guide you and support you so that you gain autonomy and ease in the Japanese. * How is the first class going? * I take 30 minutes to 1 hour to learn to discover, together we see your goals, the time to reach them, the pace of learning that suits you and I test your level. It's a good time to ask all your questions! For those who take several courses with me, know that I make a review every 10 courses to validate and remain consistent with your goals. * And what about my methodology? * I have created and tested my method for 6 years. It is simple, tailor-made, accessible and fun! It is important to me that this corresponds to your personality, your needs, and your abilities. I had more than ten students of any profile that I followed between 2 months to 2 years in individual classes or in groups (up to 4 people). I am thinking in particular of: - Jérôme, 17 years old, who obtained an excellent grade (17/20) in LV3 in oral Japanese to be able to enter the University of Lille 3. - Jean-Claude, 50, who wanted to start a business in Japan and who won his JLPT N4 after continuous efforts. - Pierre, 25, who came to find me to get an internship in architecture company in Osaka and managed to get it. - Romain (27 years old) and Maëva (26 years old) who go off as a couple in PVT in 2018! They came to find me, challenged me and gave me their trust and I am grateful! * What does my rate include? * I do not apply a fee based on the student's level or because I have a degree. Foreign languages cost with a native between 30-40 € per hour. My course is really complete and unique, sincerely you will not find courses like mine and I say it with a lot of humility! In a class you can see grammar, vocabulary, exercises, speaking, listening, etc. In addition I create the media, it takes me time because it's tailor-made! Finally my class does not stop at class! That is to say that I stay in touch with you, I have already helped one of my students at a distance when he was in Japan and I do it heartily without asking you to take out your CB ;) I do not charge travel expenses. Either I give lessons at home or I give classes at the student if it is served by means of transport and I do not put more than 30 minutes in! So far none of my students have failed me, an unforeseen happens, just prevent! Same for delays! In short, I base my relationships on communication, respect and trust and so far it has been successful;) And you ? Do you want to reach your dreams? In this case, book a class! In the meantime, I'm curious to know more about my future sparks: - Do you have a project that is important to you and that the Japanese need? - What is causing you the most difficulty? Memorization? Writing ? Speaking out ? I answer all the questions! I am convinced that one can learn and obtain results through constant effort, pedagogy, benevolence and pleasure! Amandine 愛 満 多 よ り

Online Japanese Classes for Everyone! All Levels Welcome ( ^o^ )/
Whatever your Japanese level, whatever your goals with learning, I am more than sure I can help you achieve them. For example: - Are you planning to take a JLPT exam anywhere from N5 to N1? - Need a quick brush-up for your job or scholarship interview? - Upcoming trip to Japan and you wish you could break the ice with locals in their language? - Do you want to understand what they are talking about in your favourite TV show without subtitles? - Or… you simply fell in love with this incredible language and want to start learning it from scratch? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you can already rest assured that you have found the right profile. But on top of that, the range of possible directions our classes can take is even broader: I can introduce you to Japanese interpretation prepping, help you to improve your understanding of written Japanese in a more structured way, or if you’re a kanji nerd like I am, talk about their history for hours. I have been a Japanologist *slash* lover-of-all-things-Japanese for more than 14 years and as such I am familiar with a very broad range of linguistic and cultural layers of the country (oh, and if there is one that I am not, then I will most definitely be more than happy to look into it). So do not hesitate to leave a message if you want to learn with me.

One-on-one Japanese lessons at any level (online only)
Konnichiwa! Do you want to learn Japanese? Or do you want someone to practice with? Join me, and we'll work together to improve your level. I have over ten years of experience speaking Japanese, and lived in Japan for four of these, where I did my masters in engineering completely in Japanese (except for the thesis). I will be primarily teaching Japanese grammar at the beginner and intermediate levels, but I should also be able to help you even at more advanced levels. I tend to mainly teach with conversation, but we can also dive into the details if that's what you prefer. The lesson could be conducted entirely in Japanese, or I can explain certain concepts in French or (preferably) English.
