Hello everyone! First of all, I'm very glad that you're interested in Japanese!
I was born in Japan and I am a native Japanese speaker. I was born in Kyushu, where there is still a strong traditional Japanese culture.
I love learning foreign languages, so I majored in English at University and took a coursework for teaching Japanese to foreigners. Learning foreign languages means learning other countries. I believe it has a big meaning for all of us. I used to work at a junior high school in Japan and taught English, but I had to quit it to move to the US with my family.
I don't want to give up teaching languages, so I signed up to Verbalplanet. I hope to share my cultural, experience and knowledge through teaching Japanese!

My goal is making students be independent learners. Once you gain confidence, I'm pretty sure you will be a successful learner. I would like to support you, and it's what I want to do in my life.
I use English when I teach you writing and reading, but I will encourage you to use only Japanese when you want to focus on speaking and listening.
Using visual ads is sufficient when we learn foreign languages. I will use the material which is the best for you.
If you want, I will make worksheets and send you assignments.
