Introduction to Japanese: The Kana booster (hiragana & katakana)

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
こ ん に ち は (Hello)

That's it you decided to seriously learn Japanese to get closer to your goal?

How to learn a new language when you have passed the stage of childhood?

Do you fear oblivion or retrogression?

When you learn the Japanese alphabet in high school or university, it takes between 3 to 6 months to anchor the learning of hiragana and katakana.

I know this frustration of not going fast enough to then be able to read it, write it, understand it and speak it!

Forget the romaji which are a real obstacle to learning Japanese even if I understand that it is a comfortable benchmark for learners.

I created "the Kana booster" to support you in your first steps towards the Japanese language:

- Discovery of Japanese characters
- Pronunciation of the alphabet
- Introduction to the writing system
- Maintenance of the syllabary thanks to memorization
- Kana challenge

I had to learn hiragana like you in several months. On the other hand for the katakana, I only had 15 days to memorize them before my Japanese school year!

This is why I have compiled my knowledge and know-how for you! I have my little tips and my personal methods so that you can acquire the basics to pursue your passion!

*Who should attend ?*

Pure beginners or those who need to refresh their memories or people who have lost their motivation as well as those who want to start / start again on good foundations!

* How does the course actually work? *

In 30 minutes we dynamically do the alphabet line by line. A real exchange between the learner and me. I reveal the errors and correct them.
I give keys on the traps to avoid. We see the alphabet in all its forms in different approaches. Finally we take stock at the end of the lesson.

* And what about my methodology? *

With 6 years of language teaching with a different learner profile and around the world, then after working in South Korea and Japan with companies that prioritize education, I developed my vision and the tools necessary for the proper development of the learning of a foreign language for non-Aboriginal people.

Being a teacher / student, I test myself what I offer. it allows me to identify the strengths and weaknesses of my media in order to improve the content and aim for excellence.

For learning this course is suitable for young and old, I speak French, English and Japanese fluently so I can teach the course in these languages.

* What does my rate include? *

"Kana's booster" is at its launch price.
This is a "boost" course to help you learn faster and save you time! Once mastered, you can easily assimilate other notions of the Japanese language and be one step ahead of others.

By choosing me, you can always be in contact with me and ask me questions about your problems (even outside the course)

Send a course request and let's practice together!

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 LIVE is the stall insured!

I felt sad about the loss of interest that students had when they took only one LV3 to have an extra chance that their file would be retained in a particular 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 mission, on my scale, to give courses worthy of the name! That is, relearning differently punctuated by anecdotes.
A course like I would have liked to receive, which would have saved me many hours of trouble and misunderstanding!

* Which 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) to open up to other horizons!
It is not that beyond the 30 years we are not young, it is just that the possibilities of expatriation 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 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 lead you 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 subject is the way of apprehending that makes it fit or not 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!

This ardent passion for the land of the Rising Sun, I put it to good use:

- By organizing support groups for the preparation of the oral BAC of Japanese, some have won 17 (the same note that I got while returning from my immersion!)
- By making interventions in primary schools to promote cultural exchanges France-Japan, 4 classes that go from the large section through the CLIS to CM2.
- By preserving the language in order to be able to transmit quality lessons, I am always in touch with natives!

...
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

Benoit
Private Maths Lessons - Limoges or Online - Qualified and Experienced Mathematics Teacher
I am a young, qualified and experienced mathematics tutor. While each child encounters unique learning difficulties, the ever increasing number of students per class is forcing teachers to standardize their teaching method. Faced with this observation, I decided to specialize in individual tutoring in order to guide each student on the path to success. I give my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (by internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive whiteboard. This educational tool considerably improves the student / teacher interaction. The student only needs a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone to use it. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of his knowledge in mathematics. The goal is to identify its weak points and understand their origin. I then adapt the content of my courses to their specific needs. I make it a tailor-made remediation program aimed at gradually filling each of its shortcomings. At the same time, I support the student in learning new subjects by making sure that he masters the mathematical notions necessary for the validation of his school year. I also do substantive work teaching the most effective learning methods. Finally, thanks to modern means of communication, the pupil benefits from emergency assistance accessible remotely 7 days a week (help with homework, explanation the day before an assessment, etc.).

Merveille
Private tuition in French / homework help / job correction
French teacher in a language school, I propose an individualized pedagogy, a playful approach to the French language. My goal is to (re) discover the richness of the French language without overburdening you. My point of view is that language is a social tool for communicating. That's why I will not do grammar, even if it will obviously have a place in learning. I have already had the opportunity to work with all audiences by adapting the approaches. However, I keep some constant that have proven themselves. For example, with teenagers and adults, I will work on nursery rhymes to improve phonetics even if it sounds childish. I also use games to learn, for example, to describe physically or to tell his routine ...
