Instructor： Makiko Obata
Each Lesson Length: 45min.
Each Lesson fee : 20.00USD
My lessons for adult learners ranging from those who have never studied Japanese before, to those who are intermediate level students. I offer lessons in Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji, and Romanized characters, depending on the interest and level of students.
As with any effective language learning program, I use some basic, positive learning principles:
I focus on real conversations and encourage high student talking time, which is conducive to speech development and increased confidence. I aim to make an atmosphere where students can speak comfortably and freely in lessons.
Listening and Speaking
Exam Preparation Skill (N3/N4/N5)
Examples of textbook that I have been using are
Genki I & II
Nihogo Break through
Nihongo through newspaper articles
Nihongo koredake and more
Various Exam preparation textbooks etc.
*I usually use textbooks that I recommend or that students request. Depending on students' levels and goals I use some materials from websites, books et cetera. which suit their levels alongside a textbook. Also, with some students, I use only materials from websites, books et cetera. If you have any request, please let me know in your trial lesson.
If students have time to study extra Japanese I give them homework each week. They can hand in it before the next scheduled lesson and I do corrections and return it to them/. Of course, I will give an explanation if there is a mistake. Homework supports the quicker improvement of my student's Japanese learning.
Studying takes time and needs effort, and every student is trying their best to achieve their goal. I hope all my students study the Japanese language efficiently and reach their goal. I support my student sharing flashcards and quiz of new vocabulary that they studied in the lesson.
