Hello, my name is Miki. I'm a native Japanese speaker from Osaka and currently live in Prague, the Czech Republic.
Are you interested in learning Japanese? Do you want to travel to Japan? Do you like Japanese pop-culture? Do you want to talk about Japanese culture/society?
Let me guide and support you! I have taught many students from various countries and I surely respect student's cultural and language background!
I am passionate about knowing about other cultures, traveling, learning new languages and of course teaching. It is always amazing meeting new people and experiencing new cultures.
I am a friendly and sociable person while keeping professionalism. I am happy to answer any questions and talk about not only language but also Japanese culture (including pop culture, of course!)!

My lessons are interactive and consist various kinds of activities and materials aiming of improving students' language skills. I provide immediate feedback as well as weekly feedback.
I do not stick to just textbooks. You will be exposed to Japanese in various platforms, such as short stories, dialogues, TV series, anime, movies, music, online articles and so on. JLPT preparation is also offered!
My lessons are context-based and learner-centered. I am able to prepare lessons and activities corresponding to each student's learning styles and needs. I also make the three-month goal form to specify your goals and discuss which materials we will use inside and outside the lessons! With the goal form and feedback, we will see and share your progress!
