About RobertF25I was born into the Spanish language. My father being from Spain himself, he taught me how to speak it properly. As I grew older, I realized I had a deep interest in other cultures. Which led me to choosing a high school 4 towns away, the reason I chose this high school was it's Japanese program. I took Japanese for four years in high school, involving myself in after school clubs. During my four years in high school, I travelled to Japan twice, and took part in a National Japanese Language Competition in D.C. I hosted a student from Japan all my four years for at least 2 weeks, my senior year I took the task of hosting a student in my home for 3 months. After high school, I am still currently learning Japanese in college, having to take individual study due to the high level. I have a great understanding of how to teach a language. I helped my host brother learn English, not only from the books, but cultural references as well. I think, that my style isn't only unique, but helps anyone I'm teaching understand current events, and the talk of the town. I have also taught Japanese to students, who had difficulty with the language during high school and university. I think that pronunciation is one of the most important things while learning a language, and I have a good ear to whether or not something sounds right. Another thing I focus on is subjects, what ever subject you are interested in should be important, whether it's music, food or travel it should fit to what the student wants to learn.
