Hello everyone! I'm Seika.
Let me introduce myself first :)
I was born and grown up in Japan so I'm a native speaker, but my parents come from China and they have lived in Japan for more than 30 years. That's why I also speak Chinese fluently. Afterwards we moved to Germany and I have been living here since 5 years now. So I speak German as well ;)
I understand how hard it is to start learning completely different languages and I do really hope that I can talk to you guys and help you by making progress in Japanese!
Let's have fun by learning Japanese and looking forward to talk to you !! ;)
If you have any questions, don't hesitate you can ask me anytime! :)
Me as a Teacher
I have been teaching the traditional Japanese/Chinese calculator which is called Abacus to German, because it is one of the traditional Japanese culture and at the same time it is a quite useful and helpful skill. Moreover, I have been teaching Japanese to my friends in different languages, since sometimes I need to explain it in English or German or Chinese as well.
My lessons & teaching style
I am going to use some scenes of animes, in order to improve your listening skills. We will talk in Japanese as much as possible, so it might be helpful for you to practice daily conversation as well ! Especially, if someone is interested in writing (Kanji / Hiragana / Katakana) and reading, I would love to help you by improving those skills!
The way she teaches is awesome.
She definitely has what it takes to be a good teacher.
I'd recommend her lesson to anybody interested in languages.

We studied grammar explanations and example sentences in my textbook. Seika helped with corrections and explanations, her knowledge of Chinese and several European languages helps a great deal in making sense of the various less usual features of Japanese. Thank you for a productive class!
