About Me

Emiko is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and kind, and modifies the pace of the lessons based on what you need. Because my Japanese is so limited, it has been very helpful that she has a good command of the English language, also. Highly recommend her!
She's experienced, organized, and overall a nice person
Excellent, very motivated, inspiring and encouraging teacher!
Emiko is a friendly and approachable teacher. I really enjoy my lessons with her!
It was a great lesson!

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!

Maeva
Expatriate in Tokyo gives beginner Japanese lessons (by Skype), JLPT, working holiday preparation ...
I offer individual lessons via Skype, for beginners or false beginners. The courses are based on the Minna no Nihongo books and will be adapted to your objectives, whether it is to prepare a trip, a working holiday, the baccalaureate, the JLPT, professional reasons or others. I would also provide you with PDFs to help you memorize and review the lessons as you learn.

Noriko
Japanese language 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.

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.
