English and/or German Language - Conversation Practice

Hello - my name is Lisa and I am originally from Germany. I am living and working in Japan for almost 3 years now and since April I am a student myself improving my Japanese skills. Therefore I will be very flexible and happy to help you with English and/or German. I don't have any further teaching experiences, but supported students before back in 2012 when i was an exchange student at Sophia University as well as in 2015 when I did my masters degree.
I am fluent in English and don't really have a strong accent at all, which should make speaking with me quite easy.

I'm looking forward to meeting you and help you to improve your language skills. I am open to meet around my area at a coffee shop for example as well as somewhere around Tokyo closer to your area or online via Skype, Zoom etc.
Let me know if you have any questions. :)

About Me

(German below) Hey - my name is Lisa and I am originally from a city close to Düsseldorf and Köln (Cologne) in Germany. I have been to Japan multiple times as a tourist and also as a student. At the moment I live in Japan permanently and used to work here for more than 2 years. However since I want to improve my poor Japanese skills, I decided to join a langauge school from April.

In my free time I love to travel, explore new places and do a lot of sports - well thats also because I love to eat! And Japan has a great variety of food and especially desserts.

Hallo - mein Name ist Lisa und ich komme aus einer Stadt in der Nähe von Düsseldorf und Köln. Ich war schon oft in Japan - sei es als Tourist oder als Student. Aktuell lebe ich in Japan seit fast 3 Jahren, von denen ich über 2 Jahre hier gearbeitet habe. Seit April bin ich allerdings selber wieder Student, da ich meine geringen Japanischkenntnisse verbessern möchte.

In meiner Freizeit liebe ich es zu reisen, neue Orte zu erkunden und mache gerne viel Sport - das liegt allerdings auch daran, da ich gerne sehr viel esse! Vor allem Süßes. Und Japan hat "leider" zu viele tolle Restaurants und Desserts!

Education

I did my Bachelors both in Germany and Japan in - Social Sciences focusing on Politics and Sociology as well as Business Administration.
I finished my Masters in Japan in Human Resource Management.

Experience / Qualifications

I do not own any offical certificates, however I used to teach German/English before when I used to study and live in Japan both in 2012 and 2015.

Spanish and English conversation (every level), preparation for official exams in both languages.
I have a 5 year experience teaching people from a wide range of ages different subjects, being Spanish and English my specialities. I have taught students from the age of 10 to 40 years old, and the involvement with the students has always been great. I firmly believe that the best way to learn a language and a culture is trough conversation and face to face situations and this is exactly what we will improve in this class.

Nataliia
English
All of us were studying English at schools and universities. However, in some period of time we find out that we forgot almost everything we knew before. Someone can read and write yet, but afraid of speaking. Someone feel comfortable with books and TV, but get lost when he meet foreigners. Someone need English for Business. Someone doesn't understand these "amazing" English Tenses. Of course, there are people who have never learnt English and want to start from the very beginning. I can show you, that English language is not an invincible monster, and learning of the second foreing language is extremly interesting and useful process. During the lessons we will use work materials, listen audio, read books and periodicals, watch movies and speak, speak, speak...

Hi, nice to meet you. My name is Marianne and I come from France. I speak French English and German fluently and a bit of Japanese. I would love to teach you French or English ! We can just use oral conversation, or learn grammar and conjugation through enjoyable exercises, for instance using songs, movies, books, poetry ... It's up to you and what makes you feel comfortable, have fun, and seems the most efficient to you according to your goals. I can teach you both languages from the basics. It's completely fine if you don't speak those at all to start with. I can also help with translating the basics to Japanese if needed. I hope to see you soon ! はじめまして。 マリアンです。22歳です。フランスから来ました。 フランス語と英語とドイツ語が話せます。日本語が少し話せます。今勉強していますから。 私の趣味は縫うことです。 よろしくおねがいします!

I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging.

If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalised to your needs and abilities with the first class used to evaluate your level and how we can best use further classes to improve your abilities and see results.

English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.

Elise
German tutoring by graduate university
University graduate in German language and literature (Master of Arts in German with specialization in Medieval Languages and Literature) with a solid experience gives private German lessons for all levels. Courses adapted according to the needs of the student. They aim to consolidate concepts, fill in gaps, prepare for exams (maturity, compulsory school leaving certificates, entrance exams to gyms, university, Goethe Zertifikat up to C1) and / or learn about language. For school supports: It is above all a work on the long term. Therefore, any exercise is explained in detail, which can make its execution slower: the quality is priority to the quantity in order to obtain an optimal result in the long term. Students bring their own course material (notebooks, books, audio CDs, dictionaries, assessments, etc.). It is important to note that my presence and explanations alone are insufficient to obtain satisfactory results. That's why I take the time to "learn to learn" effectively. For conversation classes: Topics are based on interests and / or specific needs for exam preparation. I give special importance to pronunciation, fluency and vocabulary. I usually correct at the end of a conversation exercise with detailed feedback, this to avoid blocking and work on fluidity. Depending on the level of the students and / or their expectations (preparation exams / assessments / desire for improvement for example), I work on the choice of appropriate words, grammatical accuracy, the ability to formulate more or less complex sentences. For exam preparations: The courses offer to acquire solid tools to learn how to write, to comment on literary texts and a methodology to work on the oral comprehension. The student will have to bring his own booklet of exam preparations available in all bookstores. For the Gothe Institute examinations, the Cornlesen exam books are particularly suitable. The other alternative would be to download AND PRINT before the beginning of the course an examination copy of GOETHE INSTITUT available on the site of the institute itself. For the oral comprehension: work from visual audio views downloaded from the DEUTSCHE WELLE website, which offer various recordings adapted to all levels, with a very concrete approach. The student acquires long-term fluency not only in oral comprehension, but also enriches his basic vocabulary through exercises. I am also working on the oral tests of the Goethe Institute to familiarize with oral. For the work of the written expression: I begin by explaining in the first lesson some methodological tools to acquire writing skills. The student has the opportunity to start writing during the course or do a writing exercise on duty and give it to me to correct (send by email or at the beginning of the next lesson). The corrections are explained in detail. In addition, at the time of booking, the student can send me a draft copy before the lesson so that I can meet his needs even more quickly. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, especially for the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. In addition, each student can contact me at any time outside the course by email if necessary. Feel free to contact me for more information.
