Private lessons to learn Japanese culture and language

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Konnichiwa!こ ん に ち は!

Are you going to Japan? Do you like Mangas? The culture and the Japanese language attract you but you never dared to start?
On the contrary, you already have a good foundation and want to take the JLPT exam? Or maybe you have to speak Japanese at work?

My courses are adaptable according to your level and your objectives:
- Discovery of culture and language (great beginners and false beginners)
- Improvement to prepare JLPT 1-5 exams
- Professional needs

We can work writing and speaking, with a method (Japan Foundation) or any other desired medium.

Whatever your motivation and level, Maki Sensei is here to help! (^ O ^)

Reviews (26)

Ma fille a commencé les cours avec Maki sensei en novembre. Elle a rejoint un groupe d'élèves qui étaient un peu plus avancés qu'elle et Maki Sensei a fait le nécessaire pour que ma fille puisse rattraper le niveau du groupe. Ma fille apprécie beaucoup la disponibilité; la gentillesse et la qualité des cours qu'elle trouve motivants. En bonus les ateliers proposés par Maki sensei à son domicile qui permettent aux élèves d'accéder concrètement à la culture japonaise!
Les cours de Maki sont toujours bien préparés et motivants pour mon fils qui suit ses cours depuis Octobre 2021. Maki a eu la gentillesse de d'inviter chez elle les élèves qu'elle enseigne en ligne à deux reprises. La premiere fois pour faire du shoudo, et la deuxièmeme du sumie, pour dessiner le 'tigre'. Elle est souciante de partager sa culture et veille à la cohésion de son groupe. C'est un vrai plaisir de voir le partage qui se fait avec Maki. Bravo!
Ce fut mon premier cours avec Mme Maki et certainement pas le dernier. Elle est très pédagogue et surtout à l’écoute. J’ai beaucoup apprécié ce premier cours avec elle. Je recommande.
Maki san est une personne très énergétique, patiente et passionnée. Ceci rend le cours dynamique et intéressant. Aussi, comme Maki sensei (professeur) est d'origine japonaise, ses cours sont authentiques et vous êtes assurés d'apprendre les bases correctement. Ses cours sont donc parfaits pour améliorer votre japonais ou pour commencer son apprentissage.
Cours très intéressant et professeur à recommander: Maki s'implique beaucoup et fais le maximum pour promouvoir la langue et la culture nippone 👍!

Let's study Japanese (Japans) efficiently with Amazon best seller author & a friend of super famous J-POP musicians!
I passed the Japanese teaching test and taught 1000 lessons and have 100 students over the world (including all platforms) so you can have a professional lesson at a reasonable price and we can focus on your personal goal from beginners to fluent speakers. My favorite topics to chat about are J-POP/Rock. I even used to hang out with super famous musicians .I can't tell who they are for their privacy, but we can talk about Japanese music, backstage and Japanese music industry. For beginners, I use teaching materials and focus on the Genki textbook. But I can customize the lesson without it. For JLPT I use a JLPT textbook. I published a book about how to get high scores on exams using only short-term study and it's a best seller on Amazon so I certainly know plenty of tips. Let's study efficiently together! Also, I'm studying Java programming, so I am teaching programming Japanese terms to students. so my lesson helps you to work with Japanese programmers! Me as a Teacher I know many Japanese learners have headaches for particles like the difference between 'が’ and 'は', 'に’and 'で’, 自動詞(はいる)and 他動詞(いれる). As a professional teacher, I am willing to explain and practice with you. The style chart of my lesson is like below. My Lessons & Teaching Style Complete beginner: --->Yes-->Start with the easiest letter.We can order foods in the end of the lesson. (talk about a textbook for next lessons) ---->Yes,but personal purpose&goal--->Let's target to it! Not a complete beginner: -->For travel to JP-->Role play for a variety of travel situations -->JLPT -->N1/N2/N3-->Practicing the exam & discussion based on each level -->JLPT -->N4/N5-->Practicing the exam & conversation based on each level -->Can do daily conversations-->Choose a topic from a list and conversation -->Still learning daily conversations-->Genki textbook and actual conversation based on it(I recommend the textbook but tell me if it's difficult. I can customize the lesson.

Tunisian Arabic, culture and civilization for everyone
This class is about learning Tunisian Arabic to easily interact with Tunisians. Tunisian Arabic is not the first dialect you hear about when you start to learn Arabic, but it is indeed one of the most fascinating and useful, especially if you are working in Tunisia, your partner is Tunisian or you are into North African social studies. It occurred to you to be told that Tunisian Arabic has no grammatical or syntactic rules because it's not real Arabic? Well, that's not true! I can reveal you some tips to speak and sound Tunisian even if you don't know anything about Arabic. We will talk, play, watch videos from Tunisian tv programs and learn about language and culture. I also do transcriptions and translations of documents and videos into French and Italian for academic researchers, journalists, and entrepreneurs.

Javier
Private Spanish classes with an experienced native teacher
Do you want to learn Spanish? Whatever your goal is (travel, Leaving Certificate, work ...) together we will achieve it. My name is Javier, and I am a young native Spanish teacher, but with the best training (graduated in Hispanic Philology and Master in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language) and years of experience, both face-to-face and online. I always try to make my classes as individualized as possible, preparing materials specifically for you, and which are also dynamic and interesting. In addition, I like to bring cultural aspects to the classroom, because learning a language is not just knowing how to express oneself correctly, it is much more! If you are interested or have any questions, please contact me! Cheers!

Learning&Practising Korean with native Korean speaker! :)
I'm a native Korean speaker, currently living in Tallinn for doing my master's degree. In my BA I studied Korean language&literature and law(double majors), and now I'm studying Adult Education in my MA. I do have some experiences of teaching Korean to foreign friends and exchange students. My class can be flexible based on your needs, for example, I can provide you : -Learning about Korean culture (e.g. culture in general, History, Society, and K-pop, K-drama, K-movie etc.) -Improving your Speaking&Writing skills -Learning basic Korean (Grammar, speaking, writing etc/I do have the learning materials) -Or based on any other learning needs that you have, feel free to tell me! This is basically one-on one teaching, so the curriculum and teaching style can be different depend on your desires, goals, levels, background knowledge&experience etc. If you are interested, feel free to let me know and we can discuss how can we do our learning journey. I'm happy to hear about your desires, needs and feedback. 같이 즐겁게 공부해요~!^^

Christophe
French: written/oral expression, grammar, conversation
Do you want to start learning French but have never learnt it before? Or maybe you want to perfect your understanding of French grammar, or your capacity to express yourself clearly, spontaneously and with confidence in French? Or work on pronunciation, perhaps improve your accent and learn more about French culture? I can help you with all of these, and not only because I was born and raised in France: after getting my Master's Degree in Lingustics and Anthropology from the School for Advanced Research in Paris - at the time I was also teaching private classes of French and English to high school and university students - I moved to the UK and studied theatre at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. There I worked on the skills any speaker needs to communicate clearly and convincingly: diction, voice projection, etc. These two approaches - linguistics, and theatre work - give me a strong foundation from which to help any student learn French. So jump on: we'll build a learning program tailored to your needs and make sure that the lessons are both dense and fun.

If you want to fall in love with French, let’s start! A bientôt :)

ARABIC /Tunisian Dialect for foreigners in Tunisia with a Native
Tunisian Dialect is without a doubt one of the most fascinating languages in the world. It is a beautiful mixture of Arabic, French and a bit of Italian. It may be confusing at first but if you dedicate the time to study it you will start communicating with natives here in no time, plus Tunisians are very kind so you will have no problem starting a conversation with a total stranger. Just message me if you are interested in learning the Tunisian dialect and let's get your journey started. Languages I can teach with : French, English and German
