Japanese Teaching Staff
Hajimemashite. My name is Yuki
I enjoy eating and love cooking as
Sometimes I take time to bake bread
Two years ago I took up Yoga, and this
year I started doing Belly Dancing.
Exercising the body feels really good,
doesn't it !
I have lived in Wales and in America
And have visited China, Taiwan,
Thailand and Vietnam.
There, I made friends with people from
the various countries. They are
precious to me.
I currently live with my husband in Osaka.
I am really looking forward to being
able to spend time online together
with people from all over the world.
Lets enjoy studying together.
Japanese Teaching Style
| What kinds of activities do you include in your online Japanese classes?
Learn how to pronounce Japanese with me in this class. It might be a little
tricky at first but you'll gradually get the hang of it. And then we will
be able to practice how to ask simple questions and introduce yourself
We practice how to have conversations using basic grammar patterns. I introduce common phrases used by Japanese and common situations you will find yourself needing to use these in Japan. By using an example sentence as the base of the class, we'll add some variations little by little. The goal is for you to finally be able to have the conversation without using any hints.
Please share your thoughts on teaching and learning Japanese.
If you have any questions about how to study Japanese or the Japanese lessons at JOI please go ahead and ask me anything, In the lessons I take particular care to choose scenes that are as familiar to you as possible. Try to practice the basic grammar forms by muttering under your breath as you go about your daily life ! As you repeat the words over and over in your head you will be able to start to remember them bit by bit.
I also love humor. If you have an idea for a joke for sentences other than the examples on the slides, please do not hesitate to let us all know !
