It was a great lesson!
Great personalised lessons. As someone who finds language learning a challenge Emiko Sensei made me feel relaxed and comfortable - creating the right environment in which for me to learn. I have no hesitation in recommending her to other learners.

learn Japanese culture and language (all levels)
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.

Learn Japanese from a native speaker in Geneva center!
Konnichiwa! I am Japanese, born in Kyoto and raised in Japan. I have been teaching in companies and language schools daily conversational and business Japanese to students ranging from teenagers to company executives. Previously I worked for training companies to provide personalized learning programs. So in my lessons, I customize each course depending on the learner's level and needs, helping to achieve learning objectives. Also, I studied and worked in the US, China, Japan and Europe and I am interested in culture, traveling, art, technology, health, education etc... If you like to learn, feel free to contact me!

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!

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!

Japanese or English Conversation from Non-Native Speaker
Japanese and English is my second language, so I believe I can help you to explore either of this language, be it for first timer or if you want to practice what you have learnt. I am originally Malaysian, but was living in Japan for 13 years, I could say my Japanese language level is almost native, but I can also discuss with you Japanese culture, Jpop, Manga, or even Ninja. Lets have fun talking and trying to get to know each other.

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!

Anna
Languages: Russian, English, and Japanese (beginner)
I specialize on teaching spoken laguage on the first place. During our classes (especially Russian and English) we use mostly the taught languages to be able to make them applicable faster. I use different techniques during classes to make them interesting and challnging. You will be given homework and some unsupervised tasks for self-development.

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.
