Japanese Class from a native Japanese speaker living in Utrecht!

Japanese language, Japanese culture, anime etc has been increasingly popular in many countries worldwide lately. Japanese is a difficult yet very beautiful and interesting language to learn. If you would like to learn Japanese, and learn about the life in Japan in general, you came to the right place! I give fun easy going lessons by mostly encouraging you to speak, because taking it into practice and talking is the quickest way to learn! It's a safe non judgemental space to make mistakes as much as you have to!

About Me

Hello!
My name is Alethea, and I am a violinist based in Utrecht. I have studied under Theodora Geraets, and Chris Duindam at Utrecht Conservatory. I have been teaching since 2019, and currently taking courses in the art of teaching. I love to help people progress, to not only teach but learn from each student. I believe each student is unique and has different needs in regard of methods and approach of lesson. Last but not least, I hope to be a teacher that would make the student leave the lesson with more motivation, encouragement and smile on their face:)

Education

I started Violin at the age of 7. I have studied with Yuuko Araki in Tokyo Japan. At the age of 17 I started studying at The Royal Conservatory of The Hague under Theodora Geraets.

Excellent teacher!!
I started taking violin lessons at the age of 7. After years of training I am currently continuing my violin studies at Utrecht Conservatory. I have also attended music theory class for 6 years, because it is very useful to have some knowledge of it when playing any instrument. If you would like, I would be more than happy to share some knowledge of music theory along with the violin lessons. Lessons are private and not in groups.

Send a message explaining your needs and Alethea will reply soon:
The more detail, the better.
Ex. "Hi, when are you available to meet for a lesson?"

Risa
Learn Japanese culture and language ! (Beginners/intermediate/Advanced)
Hello there! はじめまして! I am Risa from Tokyo, Japan. I have various experiences in teaching Japanese culture and language from children to adults in English and Spanish. I'm learning various languages as a non-native speaker, so I know how learning foreign languages can be challenging, but at the same time, so fun! :) The key to fluency is repetitive practices, from my experience. What is your purpose to learn Japanese culture and language? In the first session, let me know your specific needs and objectives so as we can take the best way to achieve these goals. Together we will practice the diverse proficiency skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking). The class will be semi-structured and flexible according to your needs and goals. Feel free to contact me!

I have taught children, students and businessmen from individuals to large classes in Japan, London and the Netherlands. Through these experience, I realized that there are many students who have the wide variety of backgrounds and I developed a deep passion for teaching Japanese as a private tutor.

I would happily teach you the Japanese and Japanese culture you need :)

Private Japanese Lesson by Certified Native Japanese Tutor
Konnichiwa (Hello), I am Japanese native from Osaka and currently living in Geneva, Switzerland. I offer private Japanese lessons from a complete beginner including children to an advanced learner. After understanding each learner's level, interest and goal, I will offer a main textbook and overview of the course plan. I will be using a balanced approach that will improve listening, speaking, reading, and writing through proven textbooks, exercises and weigh on the practical conversations. For JLPT preparation, I will offer lessons with the text suitable for the target level across required skills. I can teach in Japanese or English fluently and in French to a certain extent. I offer my lessons online, face to face at my place or near my place. All my students are repeated students who enjoy engaging and interactive atmosphere. I hope to see you soon in my lesson!

Noriko
Japanese class for all levels and ages, for speaking and writing!
In mijn Japanse les, kunnen jullie ook uitspraak met Japanse liedjes leren. Daar kan ik je ook helpen met professioneel Japans (emails, briefwisseling, etc.) en/of je helpen voorbereiden op een uitwisseling. Mijn doel in het onderwijs is om je dagelijkse leven aangenaam te maken door middel van cultuur.

Noriko
Japanese language free conversation Class for all of everyone.
Why don't you have a free conversation in Japanese without being bound by grammar and pronunciation? The theme of the conversation can be decided by the learners or I can think of it. I think it's a good idea to decide on a theme in advance so that the lessons will be conducted smoothly before you start the lessons. You are the protagonist. And I'm a listener. Let's try little by little so that we can think and express Japanese in Japanese. This is the secret to improving your Japanese conversation.

Kaoru
French Interactive Lessons for international Students
Coucou! Hello everyone! Ciao a tutti! こんにちは! Guten Tag:) I love teaching languages because I love learning them myself. For me, learning a language requires patience, willingness and joy. I also believe that learning something new in French every day is better than learning too much in a single day. I also think that you must use every new word you learn, by interacting and speaking as much as you can. For this reason, each of my lessons always includes all 5 skills according to the CEFR: - Spoken Production: e.g. I encourage learners to introduce themselves and speak about their main interests without being interrupted. - Listening: e.g. I integrate songs, interviews, lectures according to the learner's goals. - Reading: e.g. articles, film reviews, parts of books and news. - Writing: e.g. formal and informal letters and e-mails, personal accounts, journals. -Spoken Interaction: I always spend time in conversation with the student, at the beginning and the end of the lesson, in order to improve her/his fluency and confidence. I also encourage (but not force!^^) students to do exercises on their own too, so that they are more prepared for the following lesson. I am patient and comprehensive, and I organize my lessons according to the learners' interests and personal goals. From A2- B1 level onwards, I try to speak only in French.

Hello, my name is Ai. I am happy to teach Japanese. I arrived in France in March 2022. In Japan, I worked as an architect in Tokyo. I can teach commercial Japanese. I have a French husband, so I know how to teach Japanese to French people. And I'm learning French, so I know how to learn a language. I can teach not only Japanese, but also Japanese culture and study methods. I have also worked as an architect in Japan, so I am qualified to teach commercial Japanese.
