    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.

    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. Many students are able to practice Japanese well after only 1 to 2 years of teaching. Some also manage to pass the JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test). 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.

    Anne-Claire
    Private lessons in Japanese all levels up to JLPT N1
    Having obtained a bachelor's degree in Japanese at INALCO and currently pursuing my master's studies at this same university, I suggest you help you in your study of Japanese! I lived for almost two years in Japan and also have the N1 level of the official JLPT test. From preparing for the JLPT or the Japanese baccalaureate for great beginners, I will adapt to your learning objectives. I like to work with different oral and written exercises using various tools (books, videos, recordings ...) but together we will define the method that best suits you!

    Noriko
    This is Japanese grammar class. Let's clear about Japanese particles and grammar.
    If you are worried about Japanese particles and grammar, please join this class. There will be two textbooks used in this class, but we recommend that those who have learned the basics of Japanese participate. The basics of Japanese are, for example, "Minna no Nihongo I / II" and "Genki na nihongo I / II".

    JAPANESE home cooking and how to do your shopping
    I invite you to discover everyday cooking and all its dishes that you will never see on the videos. What do mothers cook? What little dishes do grandmothers simmer? I am not offering you a video recipe because I would like to go further and explain to you how to choose and buy your ingredients. Reading labels in Japanese is impossible for you, so I will also explain the difference between the products. And above all I can compose with you a Japanese meal with what you have in your fridge and answer this question that we all know / What am I going to be able to eat today?

    Anne

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.

    Yukina
    Conversation Cafe -Learn conversatioal Japanese with me-
    Hi! Everybody! My name is Yukina, currently living in the U.S. to finishing up my graduate program. From my experience, speaking a language every day with a native speaker is the fastest route to improve your language skill! and learning a language will invite the culture you want to know deeper:) so here I am! Open to any level and No pressure about making mistakes because we all do! In my class, I encourage students to speak Japanese as much as they can. During the conversation, I will use visual aid, books, whiteboard to learn Japanese effectively as well as something you like such as history, food, movies, music. So let's have class together and see what I can help with you in Japanese learning! A little bit about me ->I love dancing, traveling (One of my dreams is going to all 50 national state parks!!), cooking, and boba tea haha. Let's have a chat:)

    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!

    Enjoy your Japan Life with professional Japanese tutor

Teach without anger or fear I swear that I teach you with love. The old school education is over. 2. No Homework I know that you learn naturally at home after starting our class. Please just run freely around the Japanese Language World. About textbook We use a textbook, Marugoto. I can bring it to our first-class and then you can check it. This book is good for a basic conversation in Japan. Each lesson has one situation and topic/vocabulary of that situation. Colored pictures, much-listening practice, and you can visit the official website to watch videos and so on (free). Japanese letters are optional. You can start with Romanization. Thank you so much for reading. Enjoy your life and have a good life. Your joy is my joy. Nao
