Hello! This is a fun and simple class for those who really love Japanese and want to learn the basics of Hiragana. Japanese has three different writing systems: Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji (Chinese characters). This class is just the basic alphabet: Hiragana. We will learn how to write the characters properly, and read them. We can also practice forming words with the Hiragana characters. I lived in Japan for 3 years and can speak Japanese at an intermediate level. Let's learn Japanese together!

Miyuki
Private Japanese Lesson by Certified Native Japanese Tutor
Konnichiwa Hello! I am Japanese native from Osaka and currently living in Switzerland since 2005. I offer private Japanese lessons to people from complete beginner level including children to advanced level. In the first meeting, I will ask several questions to fully understand the needs of the student and will propose the lesson contents. Based on the objective of each student, I will be using a balanced approach that will improve listening, speaking, reading, and writing through textbooks, exercises, conversation, and games. I can teach in Japanese or English fluently and in French to a certain extent. I offer my lesson online or face to face near my place. You will find my lesson engaging and interactive. Please feel free to ask me any questions.

Introduction to Japanese: The Kana booster (hiragana & katakana)
こ ん に ち は (Hello) That's it you decided to seriously learn Japanese to get closer to your goal? How to learn a new language when you have passed the stage of childhood? Do you fear oblivion or retrogression? When you learn the Japanese alphabet in high school or university, it takes between 3 to 6 months to anchor the learning of hiragana and katakana. I know this frustration of not going fast enough to then be able to read it, write it, understand it and speak it! Forget the romaji which are a real obstacle to learning Japanese even if I understand that it is a comfortable benchmark for learners. I created "the Kana booster" to support you in your first steps towards the Japanese language: - Discovery of Japanese characters - Pronunciation of the alphabet - Introduction to the writing system - Maintenance of the syllabary thanks to memorization - Kana challenge I had to learn hiragana like you in several months. On the other hand for the katakana, I only had 15 days to memorize them before my Japanese school year! This is why I have compiled my knowledge and know-how for you! I have my little tips and my personal methods so that you can acquire the basics to pursue your passion! *Who should attend ?* Pure beginners or those who need to refresh their memories or people who have lost their motivation as well as those who want to start / start again on good foundations! * How does the course actually work? * In 30 minutes we dynamically do the alphabet line by line. A real exchange between the learner and me. I reveal the errors and correct them. I give keys on the traps to avoid. We see the alphabet in all its forms in different approaches. Finally we take stock at the end of the lesson. * And what about my methodology? * With 6 years of language teaching with a different learner profile and around the world, then after working in South Korea and Japan with companies that prioritize education, I developed my vision and the tools necessary for the proper development of the learning of a foreign language for non-Aboriginal people. Being a teacher / student, I test myself what I offer. it allows me to identify the strengths and weaknesses of my media in order to improve the content and aim for excellence. For learning this course is suitable for young and old, I speak French, English and Japanese fluently so I can teach the course in these languages. * What does my rate include? * "Kana's booster" is at its launch price. This is a "boost" course to help you learn faster and save you time! Once mastered, you can easily assimilate other notions of the Japanese language and be one step ahead of others. By choosing me, you can always be in contact with me and ask me questions about your problems (even outside the course) Send a course request and let's practice together! Amandine 愛 満 多 よ り

Japanese lessons at your leisure by webcam with native Japanese teacher
I am Japanese, a graduate of Japanese teacher with 5 years of teaching experience for the French, with more than 30 students.

I offer private Japanese lessons by webcam (skype, hungout etc) or on site (If you live nearby, I can give you in a café, Fab-Lab de Cergy etc,). I use original manuals and this allows you to learn in a fun and effective way. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact me.

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.

Alethea
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!
