日本語は読めるけど、話すのが苦手な方、日本人に何度も聞き返されて辛い思いをしたことがある方、面接やプレゼンの練習をしたい方、敬語やビジネス会話を覚えたい方、文章の添削をしてほしい方、お待ちしています。 私はビジネスをリタイヤした後、何をしようかと考えていたとき、まず思い浮かんだことは、外国語を学んで海外の人たちと交流をするということでした。しかし、逆に、私が日本語を教えることによって、多くの外国の方が日本語を理解し、日本が好きになってくれることのほうが、私のためにも、日本語を学ぶ皆さんのためにも有意義だと考えて、日本語教師になりました。 When I was thinking about what I would do after retiring from business, the first thing that came to mind was to learn a foreign language and interact with people from other countries. However, I thought that it would be more meaningful for me and for people learning Japanese if I could help many foreigners understand the Japanese language and come to love Japan by teaching it to them.

Entertaining Japanese! I've been professionally teaching Japanese for about three years. My specialties are casual Japanese and teaching phrases that only native speakers use! I help my students avoid directly translating things, as this often results in creating unnatural expressions (E.g When we hang out and friends look a bit bored, we don't say "Are you bored? We say "Do you wanna do something different? (何か違うことする?)in Japanese). Also, I break down common formal Japanese expressions and explain how you can make casual phrases with them. So that you can see the difference and pick proper expressions when you speak or write!

I'm happy to hear the news that students passed the JLPT. It's your turn next. Let's study with me Before I became a Japanese teacher, I was an English teacher at Junior High School in Japan for 15 years. I became interested in teaching Japanese after experiencing volunteer work. I like teaching and studying foreign languages. Last year I taught Japanese in Vietnam. I really enjoyed teaching there. 日本語の教師になる前は、日本の中学校で英語を15年間教えていました。 ボランティアを経験して、日本語を教えることに興味を持ちました。外国語を教えたり学んだりすることは面白いです。 昨年はベトナムで日本語を教えました。とても楽しい経験でした。

Why? I am a teacher in italki, I would like to respond to the feelings that everyone whom I met in italki wants to be good at Japanese.If you learn how to study Japanese with my correct method in a few our lessons and change how to study Japanese. you can dramatically improve your Japanese language skill by yourself. I think that Just being able to speak correct Japanese is meaningless. I want you to acquire practical Japanese that you can play an important role of various business situations of Japan with your ability of overcoming difficulties "language is power" So, in Japan where population decline is regarded as a problem, I really hope that you become a Japan New power !!

“A man who knows two languages is worth two men.” ― French Proverb I was a school teacher for several years so I've learned to teach live people and not just through the computer. I teach not only adults but children too! I have taught 7 year old kids who did not speak Japanese at all when we began. We started from Hiragana and worked up to words and sentences. I love teaching all levels, so of course beginners are welcome! I have textbooks allowing us to crossed between book based lessons and speaking lessons. But if you want to be fluent in Japanese, you should learn with textbook, and learn Japanese language! I'll teach you how to speak in a real conversational manner and not the formal helpful but not natural conversation method used by textbooks.

Trained&qualified from a uni in🇦🇺 Not only know🇬🇧 but also know how to teach🇯🇵 to 🇬🇧speakers I am a professional Japanese teacher and have been teaching with italki since 2013. I can assist absolute beginner to highly advanced level students (including N5-N1 preparation), who are willing to manage aspects of their own learning. Thanks to many of my students, I have been become one of the most experienced Japanese teachers at italki. I use PPT and Word documents to explain grammar points, etc. in English. My native tongue is Japanese, but I am trained and qualified to teach in Australia and I am more comfortable to explain Japanese in English. This may be more advantageous for English speakers. I may use less to no English for advanced students.

Frequently asked questions about online Japanese classes

At italki, you can easily find the right Japanese teacher for you by using our search filters. You can filter teachers by their experience level, teaching style, availability, and even their location. We recommend taking a trial lesson with a few different teachers to see which one you feel most comfortable with and whose teaching style best matches your learning goals. During the trial lesson, you can ask the teacher about their teaching methods, experience, and availability. You can also check their profile for reviews from previous students to get an idea of their teaching effectiveness. Ultimately, finding the right Japanese tutor online is a personal decision, and it’s important to find someone you feel comfortable with and who can help you achieve your language learning goals.

Yes, the Japanese lessons offered by italki are suitable for beginners. In fact, many of the teachers specialize in teaching Japanese to beginners. They use a variety of teaching methods and materials to ensure that students with no prior knowledge of Japanese can learn effectively. For example, teachers may use textbooks, audio and video materials, and other resources to help students develop their reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. Additionally, some teachers may offer specialized courses that are designed specifically for beginners, such as introductory courses that focus on basic grammar and vocabulary. Regardless of your level of Japanese proficiency, italki offers a wide range of classes and teachers to help you achieve your language learning goals.

Yes, you can learn Japanese at your own pace with italki. Our online Japanese courses are designed to accommodate all levels of learners, including beginners, intermediate learners, and advanced learners. You can choose a Japanese teacher who is specialized in teaching Japanese to beginners if you are just starting out.

One of the biggest advantages of learning Japanese with italki is that you can set your own pace for learning. Unlike traditional language classes where you have to follow a fixed syllabus and pace, with italki, you can choose how many classes you want to take each week and how long you want to study. You can also choose to take a break from classes whenever you need to and come back to them when you are ready.

Additionally, with italki, you have the flexibility to choose the type of classes that suit your learning style and pace. You can choose one-on-one lessons or group classes, and you can choose to focus on specific areas of the language, such as speaking, listening, reading, or writing. This allows you to learn Japanese at your own pace and focus on the areas that are most important to you.

At italki, we understand that sometimes schedules can change, and we make it easy to reschedule or cancel your Japanese lessons. You can contact your teacher directly to reschedule a lesson if you need to. Please note that if you need to reschedule or cancel a lesson, you should do so at least 24 hours in advance to avoid being charged for the lesson. If you cancel a lesson within 24 hours of the scheduled time, you will be charged for the lesson.

If you need to cancel a lesson for an emergency or unexpected event, please contact italki support as soon as possible to explain the situation. Our support team will work with you and your teacher to find a suitable solution.

It’s important to remember that building a good relationship with your Japanese teacher is key to success in your language learning journey, so open communication is encouraged.

At italki, there are multiple payment methods available for online Japanese lessons. You can pay using credit cards, PayPal, Alipay, or other methods depending on your location. To pay for a lesson, you need to purchase italki credits, which can then be used to pay for the lessons you take. The cost of each lesson depends on the teacher’s rate and the length of the lesson. Once you have enough credits, you can book a lesson with your chosen Japanese teacher and pay for it using your credits. After the lesson, your credits will be deducted based on the length of the lesson. You can also set up automatic payments so that you don’t need to manually purchase credits each time you book a lesson. It’s a simple and secure way to pay for online Japanese lessons on italki.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to learn Japanese from the comfort of your own home. Browse our selection of experienced Japanese tutors and enroll in your first lesson now!
