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!

Italian lessons with a native speaker and Japanese tutor for bachelor students
Ciao! My name is Chiara and I am from Italy. I am currently doing an MA in Japanese studies at Leiden University. I can give Italian lessons to whoever would like to improve his skills (conversation, grammar, writing...) or for those who would like to start to learn this amazing language! I can also help current Bachelor students in Japanese with their studies. I have a N2 level and I have been in Japan for 8 months. I can help you with conversation, kanji, grammar or whatever you may need!

I have been teaching Japanese, English, Piano and Voice both in schools and in private. Lessons content could be specially arranged to cater to individual needs.

Beginners/intermediate Japanese lessons for anybody!
I'm a Japanese student studying at Amsterdam University College, but I've lived abroad for practically my whole life. English is my first language but Japanese is my mothertongue - I've tutored Japanese B Higher Level for the International Baccalaureate, so I can definitely teach some basics in any preferred way - whether it's speaking, writing, or communication skills. It can be an interactive and fun class, or purely educational, depending on your motivation and liking. I like sharing about our culture, and I just enjoy teaching people!
