Online Japanese Classes for Everyone! All Levels Welcome ( ^o^ )/

Whatever your Japanese level, whatever your goals with learning, I am more than sure I can help you achieve them. 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?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you can already rest assured that you have found the right profile. But on top of that, 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.

Extra information

Prints are provided by me, so you only have to bring a pen or pencil, a notebook and your enthusiasm to learn languages.

I always prepare flash cards for my students based on the topics we have covered in class, so you can practice the vocab that really expresses your interests.

About Me

I am a friendly, enthusiastic and encouraging teacher with over 8 years of professional teaching experience.

Among the five languages I speak, Japanese is definitely my speciality since it has a very special place in my life. I have devoted more than ten years to Japanese Studies starting from my Bachelors up to my Ph.D. to learn more about the language and culture of this incredible people.

During this time not only did I get a chance to work and study in Japan for two years, but also to open my eyes to other exciting cultures as well. This is how I found myself going volunteering on Korean farms for a year and spending a month in a Taiwanese Buddhist monastery. These episodes have given me a lot of experiences and insights that I love to share and discuss with others.

As I am a great linguistic nerd and love learning languages myself (Dutch under construction), I always design my classes in such a fashion that I would also like to take part in them: I use lots of real-life materials (books, comics, movies, music, podcasts, etc.) that I maximally tailor to my student's needs and first-hand stories that put these into perspective. Last but not least, I like to keep the classes informal and informative at the same time.

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.

Ibtissam
Learn Chinese culture and language, communication, and learn character writing
Laureate of the Faculty of Letters and Human Sciences, Chinese Studies, at the Confucius Institute. Having the teaching of foreign languages and audiovisual as a part-time job allowed me to gain experience; I know this area well and I am competent to lead a course. By working with comrades of different nationalities (French, Chinese, English, American, African ...) in festivals and seminars I have well developed the competence of cross-cultural communication. My courses are aimed at young and old alike, from those who want to know the basics of Mandarin to those who prepare for competitions or who wish to improve their pronunciation / accent. I can also teach you to write Chinese symbols if you want. Depending on the objectives of each, I undertake to propose an adapted methodology, which can then be discussed in order to be optimized according to the requests. Smiling in life and serious at work. My studies and my stay in China allow me a good command of the Chinese language, a rich knowledge of the didactics of Chinese, as well as a strong communication capacity. In addition, I have a good level of Mandarin Chinese (level 1,2 3 and 4 in the oral and written Mandarin test which is called HSK and HSKK). My academic background in journalism allowed me to perfect my journalistic writing skills which encouraged me to write many articles in Simplified Chinese, as well as I developed my translation skills. Except the language, I will be able to explain Chinese calligraphy and Chinese culture (Chinese history, mythology, Buddhism, Taoism, etc.) to you at the same time. I developed these subjects for 3 years and presented in the university "SKEMA Business School" for one year. Besides the Chinese language course, you can also learn about my Chinese culture topics. It's up to you. In addition, I master 2 Chinese instruments, the bamboo flute (Dizi / 笛子) and Guqin (古琴). If you are interested, I will be happy to give you instructions. I also do martial arts, we can talk about it. I look forward to your message!

Shirley
English and Japanese lesson, Support for English homework
I specialise in tutoring language classes. I have a Master's Degree in Teaching of English as a Second Language and currently pursuing my PhD in Science of Education. I have also lived in Japan for 6 years and I have learned Japanese for two years in the university. Therefore I can teach Japanese for daily conversations. Owing to the fact that I speak 7 languages, I believe I understand the joy and struggle of language learning, which makes a good partner to learn a new language.

Miyo

I am native Japanese speaker who lives in Europe. It's my pressure if there are people who wants to learn Japanese friendly. Please contact whether your requirement for a lesson matches!

I use different techniques during classes to make them interesting and challnging. You will be given homework and some unsupervised tasks for self-development.

Elie
I m teaching japanese language, tutoring, breakdance, piano
Japanese : Being specialized in comprehension and oral expression, my courses are for beginners and intermediate levels (JLPT level N5 to N3). I prefer the active method and give my classes entirely in Japanese, while adapting myself of course to the level of the students. The lessons will generally start with a warm-up before a lesson phase associated with practice, and then a written and / or oral exercise to consolidate learning. Dance : I propose to start each class with a music warm-up session, and then take what was seen in the previous class to understand the basics. The rest of the course will generally consist of games and choreographies to learn how to use the movements and figures learned before. During the last part of each class, I will encourage students to engage in improvisation and dance battles that characterize hip-hop dance. The courses will obviously end with compulsory stretching! :) I am a demanding teacher but who is especially there to encourage his students to embark on the track to have fun and relax!

One-on-one Japanese lessons at any level (online only)
Konnichiwa! Do you want to learn Japanese? Or do you want someone to practice with? Join me, and we'll work together to improve your level. I have over ten years of experience speaking Japanese, and lived in Japan for four of these, where I did my masters in engineering completely in Japanese (except for the thesis). I will be primarily teaching Japanese grammar at the beginner and intermediate levels, but I should also be able to help you even at more advanced levels. I tend to mainly teach with conversation, but we can also dive into the details if that's what you prefer. The lesson could be conducted entirely in Japanese, or I can explain certain concepts in French or (preferably) English.
