While all of you may have a different goal, there is one common purpose that you all share, which is to use the Japanese language in order to achieve something. I would be really glad if by learning Japanese here at JOI with me, and with your peers we can help to influence your life – even a little.
When I was a child, I used to perform a musical instrument, and played various kinds of music including pop and jazz. I also love to look at old buildings like temples and shrines and so I often travel. In my class, I would like to introduce some of Japanese culture and the traditions, through learning Japanese, and also introduce some of the characteristics of Japanese people. Lets face our goals together and go for it !
Japanese Teaching Style
What kinds of activities do you include in your online Japanese classes?
In this class, we base the materials on everyday scenarios so that you can learn phrases that you can actually use.
Even if you don't know much Japanese, Don’t worry because you can look down at the chat message area and quickly see what vocabulary and phrases you can use. We give you Romaji alphabet support for the Hiragana and other Japanese scripts, so even if you are not confident for reading or reading, its okay come and join us!
In the Beginner 2 classes, you can practice speaking by putting a focus on having conversations that flow naturally and on developing and enjoying longer conversations. If your aim is to increase your vocabulary and the number of expressions you can use, then these classes will be a welcome challenge for you.
Please share your thoughts on teaching and learning Japanese.
In the JOI group lessons, there are many people studying Japanese for different reasons in the same class.
We are all from different countries, cultures and have different ways of thinking, but we can connect with each other using the tool of the Japanese language.
Let's talk a lot and enjoy studying together. We look forward to welcoming you with a smile and making you feel relaxed!
