Japanese lessons from beginners to advanced people who love Japan

It would be a great pleasure to share my language and culture with you!

The classes are semi-structured and can be scheduled flexibly, depending how you would like to study.

The aim of the class is to be able to speak and understand the language in an intuitive manner. In the lessons we therefore mainly focus on conversational training. I also provide some (home) excises and practice it together.

We can focus on different aspects of Japanese - both language and culture -depending on your preference. Culture is important because in Japanese, the way how you speak is just as important as what you actually say.

During the lesson we will handle a variety of subjects, practice vocabulary and pronunciation as well as deal with both intermediate and advanced issues with grammar and expressions in an interactive and engaging way.

Along the way I hope you will come to like Japan even more than before!
一緒に頑張りましょう!

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.

Japanese language classes taught in a fun and professional way.
I have studied Japanese language at the university of Nagoya Japan and obtained JLPT Niveau 1 (The highest level of the Japanese Proficiency Test)I also studied Classical Japanese and Classical Chinese at KU Leuven. I have also obtained a Postgraduate in Korean Studies at KU Leuven. In 2011 I became the winner of the Japanese speech contest organised bij Nihonjinkai in Brussels. I have a longstanding experience in teaching Japanese as a certified language teacher. I have lived and worked 10 years in Japan, as a language teacher at Japanese universities and Japanese companies. I also worked as a Japanese-English/French translator for several Japanese companies. I offer Japanese language classes for students of all levels. All my classes are tailor made and adjusted to the needs and the wishes of the student. I can help you study for JLPT as well.

Speaking/conversation in Japanese for above intermediate students
こんにちは。” I’ve learned Japanese for quite some time, but never have a chance to use it.” “ I’ve learned Japanese but I still don’t understand what Japanese are saying.” If you are feeling that way, I’m here to help! This class is focusing on your speaking ability. Do you want to use Japanese in daily life? At work or school? Let me know your situation that you use Japanese, and practice practical Japanese!

Learn Japanese from an experienced tutor with a solid background in Japanology and linguistics (+bring your friend for a group discount!)
Whatever your Japanese level, whatever your goals with learning, I am more than sure we can achieve them together. 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 in a structured way? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you can already rest assured that you have found the right tutor. On top of these, 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.

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

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!

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 700 lessons 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 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.

Japanese conversation for beginners and intermediate learners (JLPT N5-N3)
This class is designed for new learners of Japanese or people preparing the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (N5-N3). I currently teach basic Japanese to undergraduates at the university level with both Marugoto and Minna no Nihongo materials. During online language sessions or exchanges, the resources I use are more varied, with contents available on YouTube and elsewhere on the internet. The teaching and learning format is flexible and can be adapted to the student's needs and wishes. Therefore, it is totally possible to include textbooks, videos and other learning contents, or exclude them and make it a conversation-based experience. Please let me know beforehand if you have specific requests.

I also have a PhD in Japanology and have lived and worked in Japan several times over several months (almost 2 years in total).
