I was born and grew up in Japan, I have lived in Australia for a year and lived in the UK for the last 5 years.
In the UK I gave private Japanese lessons to several British students.
I enjoyed time with my students so much that I wanted to start to teaching online to meet more people in different countries.
Have you ever experienced the situation where you have taken a phrase from a Japanese textbook and said it to a Japanese person and received only a confused look in response? Probably the reason is that textbooks tend to teach Japanese in an ultra-polite form.
Those basics are very important to know but you also need to know the casual way to say things, as native speakers do, to make conversations flow. This is also necessary to understand what Japanese people are saying to you.
I can teach you very basic Japanese to business Japanese either in English or Japanese, depending on what level you are at.
Areas I can help with include:
- General Japanese – Basic Japanese( listening, pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary)
- Academic writing (essays, reports, dissertation and thesis writing) and proofreading
- Critical reading and thinking
- Conversational skills
( Casual conversation, Travel Japanese, Business conversation, Job interview practice )
- Slang and idioms
I understand the challenges of learning a second language because I taught myself English, so I can provide you with tips to learn the language in an efficient, and most importantly, fun way!
