learn Japanese culture and language (all levels)

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I studied Japanese, oral and written, for 10 years, including 2 years in Japan. I have a JLPTn2 as well as a bachelor's and a master's degree in Asian studies. In addition, I have experience as a teacher.
My way of teaching Japanese is primarily aligned with the learner's objectives and the time he will have to devote to them. Whether it is grammar at all levels, discussion, reading, preparation for a trip to Japan, I will be happy to help.

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have been teaching Japanese and French as a foreign language for about 5 years, whether in private lessons or in class.
I really like learning foreign languages; I like teaching too. Having had problems with German at school, I am very familiar with the difficulties of learning, and am confident that we can go beyond that with good humor, patience and a little time.
Having passed my master's degree in Japanese history, I can provide more details on this subject, as well as on Japanese culture in general. In addition, I know all the jdramas from the past decade, and am ready to use your interests in my classes.

Basic Japanese Conversation with native Japanese speaker
I have taught both students (14 - 18) and adults conversational Japanese, with specific focus on conversation and grammar. I will also provide basic understanding of Japanese culture and make this a fun, interactive and exciting learning experience.

Japanese All Levels (N5-N1). Study Japanese with a native teacher
For people who want to learn Japanese (every level), my class is the best option for you! I have a 420-hour Japanese language teaching certificate with experience in teaching private lessons before. In this class, I will: - Design the best course that suit your purposes and interests - Help you reach a certain level in Japanese as you desire - Assist you in studying for the JLPT test I offer courses through online platforms (Zoom, skype,..) so don't worry too much about finding a physical place to meet in this pandemic time. Hope to work with you soon!

Akos
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.

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.

Mizu
On line Japanese Tutoring, Certified tutor with more than 10 years of experience
Would you like to learn Japanese and start speaking the language from the very first class? Tired of not being able to say anything in spite of having completed the grammar exercises? Then my classes are for you! I'm Mizu, I'm a native and a certified Japanese instructor. I've been teaching Japanese at school and tutoring children and adults in different countries for over ten years and currently working in University as a lecturer. I'm passionate about what I do and I love helping students brush up their communication skills. In my classes, students complete reading and grammar exercises, but I try to focus on the listening and speaking part, so that they can listen and express their feelings and opinions in given situation. I'd say my classes are fun and relaxed, but at the same time I'll always make sure you learn something every time we meet. I'm really looking forward to meeting you soon!!

Amandine
Do not be alone: Gain autonomy and ease in Japanese
My name is Amandine and I am a beginner Japanese teacher, specializing in the linguistic preparation of travel for 16-30 year olds. It has been 12 years since I returned from my stay in Japan. Over the years and feedback from my students, I have established a methodology and practical tools according to the objective of each: - To deepen the knowledge of the Japanese culture. - Acquire language bases in preparation for a trip (business / sabbatical year). - Prepare for exams (BAC, JLPT). - Analyze your mistakes to improve your results. - Improve your oral expression. - Advise on the steps to be taken / followed in relation to your project. Basically, I was not a student particularly gifted for foreign languages! I would have to wait until high school to trigger a keen need to get my dream: go to Japan! After high school, I did not study at all to be a teacher, translator or performer! * So why do I continue to devote my time to private lessons? * It all started with Marine looking for a host family to host Yuka for 3 months! A year later, I leave in exchange student in Japan living in immersion exclusively in host families, this is how: - I was admitted to the famous Kokugakuin High School. - I visited Tokyo, Kyoto and Niigata. - I became "ambassador" of France. - I won the 3rd place in the "speech contest" in Japanese, just behind the Thai and Taiwanese, facing 8 foreign students of all nationalities in long stay, just like me. On my return, I spent the JLPT N3 to certify my level by the Japanese institution! I really want to share this passion for those who have a crush on the land of the Rising Sun! * Who is my course for? * To those who have a concrete project related to the Japanese language. Whether you're starting from scratch or having notions, I'm here to guide you and support you so that you gain autonomy and ease in the Japanese. * How is the first class going? * I take 30 minutes to 1 hour to learn to discover, together we see your goals, the time to reach them, the pace of learning that suits you and I test your level. It's a good time to ask all your questions! For those who take several courses with me, know that I make a review every 10 courses to validate and remain consistent with your goals. * And what about my methodology? * I have created and tested my method for 6 years. It is simple, tailor-made, accessible and fun! It is important to me that this corresponds to your personality, your needs, and your abilities. I had more than ten students of any profile that I followed between 2 months to 2 years in individual classes or in groups (up to 4 people). I am thinking in particular of: - Jérôme, 17 years old, who obtained an excellent grade (17/20) in LV3 in oral Japanese to be able to enter the University of Lille 3. - Jean-Claude, 50, who wanted to start a business in Japan and who won his JLPT N4 after continuous efforts. - Pierre, 25, who came to find me to get an internship in architecture company in Osaka and managed to get it. - Romain (27 years old) and Maëva (26 years old) who go off as a couple in PVT in 2018! They came to find me, challenged me and gave me their trust and I am grateful! * What does my rate include? * I do not apply a fee based on the student's level or because I have a degree. Foreign languages cost with a native between 30-40 € per hour. My course is really complete and unique, sincerely you will not find courses like mine and I say it with a lot of humility! In a class you can see grammar, vocabulary, exercises, speaking, listening, etc. In addition I create the media, it takes me time because it's tailor-made! Finally my class does not stop at class! That is to say that I stay in touch with you, I have already helped one of my students at a distance when he was in Japan and I do it heartily without asking you to take out your CB ;) I do not charge travel expenses. Either I give lessons at home or I give classes at the student if it is served by means of transport and I do not put more than 30 minutes in! So far none of my students have failed me, an unforeseen happens, just prevent! Same for delays! In short, I base my relationships on communication, respect and trust and so far it has been successful;) And you ? Do you want to reach your dreams? In this case, book a class! In the meantime, I'm curious to know more about my future sparks: - Do you have a project that is important to you and that the Japanese need? - What is causing you the most difficulty? Memorization? Writing ? Speaking out ? I answer all the questions! I am convinced that one can learn and obtain results through constant effort, pedagogy, benevolence and pleasure! Amandine 愛 満 多 よ り

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.

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.

German Course - Japanese Course - Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Levels
I propose an approach to German oriented towards grammar and vocabulary, which often pose the most difficulties, and spoken language. This course aims to approach the technical aspects of the language without being too didactic. For the course, I combine the theoretical aspect of the language, necessary for correct speaking, with the practical aspect, which makes it possible to be understood and to interact effectively with native speakers, while taking a step back from each one. both. I offer an approach to Japanese based on grammar, vocabulary and spelling (kanjis). Starting from the experience of a speaker of Indo-European language, the course aims for the student to soak up the structure of the Japanese language in a natural way by getting rid of any unconscious a prioris coming from his own language. Also, in this course I put the emphasis on the written-oral relationship, which can strike in the case of the Japanese language, so as not to leave them separated.

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.

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.

Lies
Japans voor beginners en intermediate level, JLPT level N5 tot N3 (van A1 tot B2)
De Aziatische cultuur heeft mij al van kindsbeen af geïnteresseerd, daarom heb ik ook besloten om hier mijn studierichting van te maken. Ik heb mijn bachelordiploma behaald in de richting Japanologie, en kijk ernaar uit mijn kennis te delen met anderen. Verder heb ik al enige ervaring in het lesgeven, dankzij eerdere studentenjobs. Op dit moment geef ik ook les op verschillende online platformen, mijn leerlingen zijn zeer tevreden met deze lessen. Voor mijn lessen baseer ik me vooral op de boeken van Genki 1 en 2, en videomateriaal om wat af te wisselen. Naar mijn mening is het leren van grammatica en spreekvaardigheden het belangrijkste, maar indien er interesse is in bijvoorbeeld luistervaardigheid, leesvaardigheid, schrijfvaardigheid, ... kan hier ook zeker op geoefend worden.
