My name is Ayako Suzuki. I live in Tochigi prefecture with my husband and two children.
Tochigi has two towns that are very popular tourist attractions; Nikko, which is famous for its World Heritage shrine and its wonderful nature, and Mashiko which is famous for its pottery. Its only two hours by train from Tokyo, so if you get that chance, please come and visit Tochigi.
Through the language of Japanese, I am happy to and looking forward to meeting you all.
Lets study Japanese together.
Japanese Teaching Style
What kinds of activities do you include in your online Japanese classes?
In the Introductory class, we study some basic Japanese including introductions, numbers and how to ask about things and people around you. Lets first start off by getting used to the sound of Japanese. Its alright if you cannot read any Japanese script, there is Romaji (Roman alphabet) support within the class texts so please feel free to join the classes.
At the Beginner 1 level we learn to use verbs and adjectives to learn some basic grammatical structures and then learn how to use them in everyday conversations. Come on and use the grammatical structures to express yourself more and more !
We take the grammatical structure used for that day and practice speaking Japanese more and more. Don't worry about making mistakes, just get talking with your classmates and practice a lot. By the time the lesson is over, you will be able to use the grammatical structure naturally.
Please share your thoughts on teaching and learning Japanese.
Hey everyone, come to my class and speak about your family, your interests, the place you live, your favorite things and future hopes. I want to at least help you to get rid of the feeling, "I want to speak Japanese, but I don't know how to say this".
