Do not be alone: Gain autonomy and ease in Japanese

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
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!

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Teaching allows me not to forget the Japanese, it is very difficult to find Japanese people in the North to discuss so I put a lot of things in place including private lessons.

* What is the trigger for this attraction for Japan? *

It is expected that it is the mangas or the video games, it took part in my interest, but as far as I remember I did an introduction to Chinese in primary!
For me this was the starting point of my curiosity for Asia which offers a universe and a total change of scenery.

As for language classes in France, I have been able to observe the limits of traditional learning, I may have started like you, in association or in class, among 30 other students, and then I pursued as an autodidact.

I realized that we are taught a language by grammar. The grammar ?! You do not see the problem? There is better as a hook to learn a language, no ... Even if grammar is necessary! In class, we knew almost nothing about life there! unless you are a lover of Bescherelle for young people learning a language LIVING is the stall insured!

I felt sad about the loss of interest we had students where he took only one LV3 to have an additional chance that their record is retained in such a school.

Which provoked for them:

- overtime...
- bad grades
- a drop in esteem
- a lack of interest in languages
- tiredness
- a cost: book, membership fee etc.

I then had a desire to restore taste and meaning in learning ...

Suddenly, I gave myself as a mission, on my scale, to give courses worthy of the name! That is to say re-learn differently punctuated by anecdotes.
A course like I would have liked to receive, which would have saved me many hours of trouble and misunderstanding!

* What teacher am I? *

Atypical.

"Learning to put it at the service of others" would be my motto!

I have a lot of fun challenging you on your side!
I like finding suitable solutions and seeing you realize your dreams.

I would like to inspire many young people (16-30 years old) to open up to other horizons!
It is not that beyond the 30 years we are not young, it is just that the opportunities to expatriate are almost zero, that's why I strongly recommend to fly to the adventure if you have the opportunity!
I also take care to reassure the parents about the progress and the project of their children, it is essential for the minors.

It is because I went through many faces and difficulties that I am led to guide and coach you in the most just way possible.

* What profile do my students have? *

I'm not looking for quantity, I prefer quality!
A relationship is created as and when! And for me every student is precious!
I only met great people!

For me, a student is not bad in the matter it's the way of apprehending that makes it fit or not to the student.

* What I like about my students? *

First of all their audacity!
To give oneself the means to succeed by perseverance!
My students do not hesitate to get in trouble to progress
For example after a notion together, make sentences more complex!
I congratulate them always to take the step whatever the difficulties!

Then their difference!

Appreciating what they are allows to be tolerant and open to the other!
I discover beautiful personalities through my classes.

Then their honesty!

"I have not done this exercise" or "today I feel tired".
They indulge as they are and I adapt accordingly!
I am not for punishments but rather for the valorization of talents!

Finally, I want to tell you:

"Do not think that what you are" is a brake on your aspirations!

Shyness? Fear? French problem? etc does not prevent to come true!
Sincerely, I discovered more strength than I would have imagined over time, experiences and encounters!

Japanese tutoring (beginner to intermediate)
Hello ! Student with French for mother tongue, I study languages (English / Japanese) at the University Lille 3 while following a training to teach French to foreigners. The private lessons that I propose are intended to support students in their language learning or help them to deepen their knowledge. As each learner has unique needs, I will adapt my teaching and the proposed exercises to the students, and try to meet their expectations as effectively as possible. Japanese: for beginner or intermediate students (My background: I have been studying Japanese for three years now, first as an autodidact, then taking university courses.) I did many language internships in Japan before spending a year of exchange in a university. Japanese, Oita University, South Japan).
