Ms. Noriko is a very nice teacher. I have only had four lessons up till now but they helped me tremendously with understanding some harder Japanese grammar point that I always struggled with. She is very understanding and will try her hardest to answer all your questions. ~ Em
Noriko is a great teacher! She's really nice and tries her best to accommodate you with the lessons and with your learning goals. Plus, it's great to learn from someone that currently lives in Japan. It makes the experience more real. Domo arigato for being my teacher ^^
First class with Noriko San went well and smooth. Noriko San is very responsible and patient. Cool!
Why don't you have a free conversation in Japanese without being bound by grammar and pronunciation? The theme of the conversation can be decided by the learners or I can think of it. I think it's a good idea to decide on a theme in advance so that the lessons will be conducted smoothly before you start the lessons. You are the protagonist. And I'm a listener. Let's try little by little so that we can think and express Japanese in Japanese. This is the secret to improving your Japanese conversation.
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. The basics of Japanese are, for example, "Minna no Nihongo I / II" and "Genki na nihongo I / II".
I want to use "Minna no Nihongo" as a textbook. I will take good care of each lesson and provide sufficient support to ensure that you can acquire it. First of all, it is important to become familiar with Japanese. I want to give lessons that match your learning pace.

Private Japanese Lesson by Certified Native Japanese Tutor
Konnichiwa Hello! I am Japanese native from Osaka and currently living in Switzerland since 2005. 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. Based on the objective of each student, I will be using a balanced approach that will improve listening, speaking, reading, and writing through textbooks, exercises, conversation, and games. 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. Please feel free to ask me any questions.

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.

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.

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

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.

Japanese language classes taught in a fun and professional way.
I have studied Japanese language at the university of Nagoya Japan and obtained JLPT Niveau 1 (The highest level of the Japanese Proficiency Test)I also studied Classical Japanese and Classical Chinese at KU Leuven. I have also obtained a Postgraduate in Korean Studies at KU Leuven. In 2011 I became the winner of the Japanese speech contest organised bij Nihonjinkai in Brussels. I have a longstanding experience in teaching Japanese as a certified language teacher. I have lived and worked 10 years in Japan, as a language teacher at Japanese universities and Japanese companies. I also worked as a Japanese-English/French translator for several Japanese companies. I offer Japanese language classes for students of all levels. All my classes are tailor made and adjusted to the needs and the wishes of the student. I can help you study for JLPT as well.

I recommend various study materials to students and provide regular feedback.

Classes are only during the week (no weekends) and can be either during the day or early evening (see the availability table).
