Welcome and thank you for viewing my profile. I am from Gifu, which is located in central Japan. My mother tongue is Japanese. I also speak English, a little bit of Indonesian and Spanish (still beginner).
I adore travelling, great food and fantastic music. I love teaching Japanese and I am extremely interested in languages and different cultures.
I am a qualified Japanese teacher- I finished my Japanese teaching course in May, 2017. I have also passed the Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test, so I am not only well- trained, but also I understand how to teach Japanese.
I am currently living in Malang, Indonesia where I teach Japanese to high school students.
I also have experience in LEARNING a foreign language, so I understand the needs and challenges of foreign language learners. I am sure I can give you some advice which I acquired from my own experiences.
Language is about communication, therefore, my lessons will be focusing on communication skills. Language is a part of culture, therefore, you will also have the opportunity to find out about the Japanese culture through my lessons.
They will be fun and relaxing but still constructive lessons rather than harsh and intense ones. However, I offer customised study plans according to the needs of each student: travelling, business meeting /mannerism, exam, etc. So if you need me to teach grammatically perfect Japanese or correct each mistake you might make, please let me know.
I would love to help you to get more confident with your language skills and get to know more about Japan.
I hope to see you soon!
