    Japanese Language Lessons for Beginners (Kanji, vocab, grammar...)

    Starting with Japanese might be daunting at first. But if one makes a habbit out of this practice it becomes much easier. And I would be happy to help you start with this practice, guide you and share my knowledge with you. Or perhaps you've already started and would like to get back on track.

    My preffered book is Genki for grammar and Basic Kanji Book for writing characters (Can be also combined with Heisig's method). You don't have to purchase anything. I'd provide you with materials for the lesson.

    Please feel free to contact me for more information.

    More info:
    We begin with Hiragana, then Katakana and then Kanji. We will try to eliminate Romaji as soon as possible.
    I do love focusing on the writing of Kanji characters, but we can always change the structure of the lesson and focus according to your needs!
    My own experience with Japanese is approximately 2 years of intense study and then 4 years of study as a recreation.

    Extra information

    Please have a paper and a pencil/pen with you for practicing writing.

    About Me

    Hello! I am Jana and I am a Czech native speaker currently living in Belgium (Genk).
    I've studied English, Dutch, Japanese and I have very basic knowledge of German and French.
    I am quite passionate about laguages and I'd like to share my knowledge with You! I am very patient and I take your language journey seriously.

    I've studied at Masaryk University, Pedagogy, bc.

    If you're still doubting, feel free to contact me about possibility of a lesson with me.

    Thank You and I wish You success!

    Education

    I've studied for a bachelor diploma in general field of Pedagogy at Masaryk University.
    I've also studied Japanese on the same university for 3 years (without diploma).

    Experience / Qualifications

    I will be honest - I am still quite new to the practical world of teaching and your feedback would be highly appreciated. However, I can understand the struggles of trying to learn a new language, since I myself try to learn them too (also my partner's native language is not Czech).
    Learning a new language is always a challenge and I would be glad to help you on your journey. I am a Czech native speaker, currently living in Belgium. My preferred teaching method is using stories and comprehensible description of visual aids - using Czech language only (also known as Comprehensible Input), but I'd be happy to try to adjust the lesson according to your preferred learning experience and expectations. Please feel free to contact me for more information. Thank you!

    Private Estonian teaching and tutoring for all levels
    Learning Estonian can be quite hard on your own or in a group. As a native speaker I can help you become fluent in Estonian by practicing conversation, writing, grammar or any other subject you would like by taking an individual approach. I offer private lessons to all levels from beginner to advanced using English and Estonian (also Spanish).

    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.

    Private French lessons with native French speaker in Co. Mayo
    I have been tutoring French and English for the past 20 years to students of various ages & origins and of numerous backgrounds: children, teenagers, adults, professionals, and also sometimes even older seniors (85+). Why am I teaching both languages? Well, I’m bilingual and of American & Swiss/French origins, and... I live in Ireland! This is what makes my teaching strong and relevant because I understand both cultures and therefore I can adapt my classes depending on the language of my students. While I was studying social work in French-speaking Switzerland, I was giving French/English private lessons in order to earn a side income. And I genuinely enjoyed it doing it! After I graduated and started working full-time, I didn’t give up this activity because I loved meeting new people and helping them achieve their goals. My teaching is always interactive in order to hold my students’ attention during the whole length of the classes, using numerous learning tools (photos, newspaper articles, music, videos, etc.) Naturally, I will focus on the priority of each student. Some students will want to improve their pronunciation, grammatical, and vocabulary skills, others will need to prepare a presentation or a speech at school/work, while others just want to learn a new language to enrich their general knowledge. And sometimes too, parents want their younger children to master a new language. Thanks to my education and experience with children, I’m also able to run a class dedicated to them! What you will gain from my course is not only good pronunciation and vocabulary/grammar improvement but also a deeper knowledge and understanding of the culture that surrounds one language! When you speak a language it’s important to appreciate the lifestyle, traditions, and heritage of the nation(s) speaking it. Both French and English are spoken in many countries around the world, as primary languages, and with so many different accents: the learning process is unlimited! Before the COVID restrictions, I was mainly teaching face-to-face and with a maximum of four students, but at the moment, I’m only teaching online (one-and-one) on Zoom. Besides that, I’m also a genealogist, I’m running Spiritual Seminars in the West of Ireland and I have a passion for vegetarian & vegan cuisine. I hold a Degree in Early Childhood Education for many years I owned a private “Before & Afterschool” facility for children aged 4 to 12. I’m looking forward to meeting you

    Private Spanish language lessons for all levels
    I offer Spanish language courses for all levels. If I am asked for academic support (from primary to university), it will mainly be a question of reviewing, with the pupil or the student, the points of the subject which pose a problem to him (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc.). If I am asked for a general learning of the Spanish language, it will mainly be, but not only, a learning by dialogues in Spanish language, which will allow the student, as and when, to acquire vocabulary, understand grammar and fix linguistic structures in your head. I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves more fluently in Spanish and improve their oral comprehension of the language. Serious guaranteed. The course is given by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)

    Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
    THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.
