Ayumi
Italian classes in Rotterdam! For advanced, intermediate and beginner :)
I was born in Japan and moved to Italy from a young age, but I always practiced Japanese at home and regularly went to Japan for summer study programs. During my undergraduate studies in France, I started teaching part-time Japanese and Italian. Last year, I was studying at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, where I had the chance to work as a teacher again, together with some translation and interpreting services. I am very passionate about helping people with language learning processes and sharing with my students my knowledge of my two cultures! That's why I believe that language classes should follow the student's personality, interests, and objectives :) I am also prepared to assist for official language tests. When teaching, my main interest is always "how can I help you more"! Feel free to contact me! Looking forward to hearing from you, Ayumi

Japanese All Levels (N5-N1). Study Japanese with a native teacher
For people who want to learn Japanese (every level), my class is the best option for you! I have a 420-hour Japanese language teaching certificate with experience in teaching private lessons before. In this class, I will: - Design the best course that suit your purposes and interests - Help you reach a certain level in Japanese as you desire - Assist you in studying for the JLPT test I offer courses through online platforms (Zoom, skype,..) so don't worry too much about finding a physical place to meet in this pandemic time.

Akos
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.

Portuguese Language and Brazilian Culture: Learn with fun!
Do you want to speak Portuguese and get closer to the Brazilian culture in a fun and dynamic way? Well, I am a Brazilian who can show you our History, our art, customs and the great diversity of Brazilian Portuguese accents, as if you were on a virtual trip to Brazil. I have been teaching my language to people of different levels and objectives for more than two years, which gave me great experience in adapting my classes according to the needs of each student. Thus, in addition to traditional grammar, I use movies, songs, literature and other resources according to the profile of each student. In Brazil, I worked in schools and science museums, where I gained practice teaching children, youth, and adults. I also worked writing and reviewing articles for magazines, so I have great experience with the written Portuguese language. I offer online classes via webcam or face-to-face (in Granada, Spain) so that the student can choose the way that suits him best.

Amandine
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
