Learn Japanese from an experienced teacher, either on Video Calls or In-Person

=> Classes and Lessons

If you would like to learn how to communicate in Japanese by speaking, listening, reading and writing, it would be a good idea to learn from a live teacher. Thus, you would learn better and faster; an experienced teacher could give a structure to your learning and a steady rhythm to your progress.

I have been teaching people Japanese for over thirty years in the US, most of the time in New York City, and currently in Charleston, SC, on video calls and in person (if we live close by). They are in a small group of up to four and one-on-one settings. During the lessons, I use English in explaining for lower-level students and gradually increase Japanese.

I will walk you through all the necessary steps, and you will be surprised at what you can say in just a few weeks. Also you are welcome to ask as many questions as you want.

Many posts in this blog were originally written for our students or inspired by them in class. I enjoy writing for them about things we didn’t have time to discuss in our lessons.

But when I write, some topics are so interesting that I also wish to reach someone like you, to share them with. I mean those of you who have interest in Japan and the Japanese culture, whether or not you are learning Japanese.

By reading these posts, you can learn a lot about the people, the language and the culture of Japan. Since nowadays there are already many interesting news articles, websites and social media posts on Japan, I try not to tell you stories already covered by big news media or very popular bloggers living or traveling often in Japan. Unless there is a good reason.

日本語を学ぶ:ビデオ通話または対面クラスで

日本語を話す、聞く、読む、書くの形でコミュニケーションに使いたい方は、直接教師から習うのもいいことです。経験のある教師は、生徒の学習にきちんとした枠を作り、着実に学習を進めさせることができるからです。

私どもは30年以上、ほとんどはニューヨーク市で、現在はサウスカロライナ州チャールストンで、ビデオ通話または対面で、日本語の授業を行なっています。4人までの小さなクラスまたは、プライベートレッスンです。授業では、初級の方には英語で説明をし、レベルが上がるにつれ、だんだん日本語を増やしていきます。

レッスンでは、ひとつひとつ丁寧にお教えしますから、数週間もすると、びっくりするほどいろいろなことが言えるようになります。そして、質問はいくらしても構いません。

ブログを読んで日本語と日本について学ぶ

これらの記事の多くは元々生徒さんのために書いたもの、または授業中のやりとりから書きたいと思いついたものです。授業では時間がなかったけれど、生徒さんにお話ししたかったことを書くのは楽しいです。

でも、話題によってはとても面白くて、あなたのような方にも読んでもらえればなあと思うことがあります。日本や日本文化に興味のあるあなたのことです。

話題は主に、日本人や日本語、日本文化のことです。昨今は日本について面白いニュースやウエブサイト、SNSなどの投稿がたくさんありますから、それらで取り上げていないことを書いていきたいと思っています。必要な場合は別として。
