    Learn Japanese culture and language ! (Beginners/intermediate/Advanced)

    Hello there! はじめまして!
    I am Risa from Tokyo, Japan.

    I have various experiences in teaching Japanese culture and language from children to adults in English and Spanish.
    I'm learning various languages as a non-native speaker, so I know how learning foreign languages can be challenging, but at the same time, so fun! :) The key to fluency is repetitive practices, from my experience.

    What is your purpose to learn Japanese culture and language? In the first session, let me know your specific needs and objectives so as we can take the best way to achieve these goals.
    Together we will practice the diverse proficiency skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking).
    The class will be semi-structured and flexible according to your needs and goals.

    Feel free to contact me!

    British and American Culture and Literature, Minority Literatures
    Literature in English language is a very broad term. The biggest number of popular English language texts comes from the USA and the UK, however, there are many other places where English is spoken as a native language and interesting texts are produced. You can learn with me the following subjects: 1. American literature (including native American literature). 2. British literature (including Welsh and Scottish literature). 3. Selected areas of literature in English from Canada, Australia, India and South Africa.

    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!

    Learn Italian with a real Italian (also for beginners)
    I am an Italian native speaker with a background in design. Usually, I tend to use a non-academic approach, by focusing on the student's interests and make him/her applying the language to their everyday life, instead of simply learning the grammar rules by heart. In my opinion, learning a new language should be fun and easy, nothing too stressful. What you will get from is a new positive and funny way to learn a foreign language such as Italian or English.

    Mandarin Chinese classes for children / adults / business(native speaker)
    Dear friends, 亲爱的朋友你们好!

I gave Mandarine Chinese to teenagers and adults from the states and right now I am in Canada to teach the Chinese.

I have travelled to many countries and I like to share my story/experience and culture to different ones that they like and would like to know the oriental culture.

    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.
