ニュージーランド、韓国、中国の3か国で日本語を教えてきました。 ニュージーランドで初めて日本語を教えたのをきっかけに、日本語教師になるための勉強をしました。 その後、平日は会社員として働き、週末は大学内にある国際交流ラウンジでボランティアをしていました。 日本語を教えることは、沢山の勉強をしなくてはいけないのでとても大変ですが、学習者の方々が一生懸命に日本語を学んでくれること、日本語に関心を持ってくれることが何よりも励みになり、私も楽しくレッスンすることが出来ます。 After teaching Japanese for the first time in New Zealand, I studied to become a Japanese teacher. Teaching Japanese is very difficult because I have to study a lot, but it is most important for the students to learn Japanese hard and to be interested in Japanese. It is encouraging and I can enjoy the lessons. 뉴질랜드에서 처음으로 일본어를 가르친 것을 계기로 일본어 교사가 되기 위한 공부를 했습니다. 일본어를 가르치는 것은 공부를 많이 해야돼서 매우 힘들지만 학생분들이 열심히 일본어를 배우는 것 일본어에 관심을 가져주는 것이 무엇보다도 격려가 되고 저도 즐겁게 레슨할 수 있습니다.

I have had the opportunity to talk with people from many different countries, and each time I have taught them a little about Japanese culture and the language, I have a desire to explain my country to people from more countries. The most important thing when I learned a foreign language was to increase the opportunities to use that language. No matter how much you study, if you don't use it often, you'll spend a lot of time learning it. For the above reasons, I decided that it is important to focus on conversation-centered free-talk in my lessons, first of all, to create many opportunities for you to talk about topics you like, so that you can get used to speaking.

私は17年くらい小学生から大学生まで英語を教えていました。その後、ソウルに引っ越しして、日本語のネイティブチェックの仕事を15年ほどしました。ですから韓国人が共通に間違える部分をよく知っています。日本に帰って来てから日本語教育能力検定試験に合格して、日本語教師の資格を取りました。韓国語能力試験(TOPIK)は6級です。 I had taught English for about 17 years to elementary school children and college students. I moved to Seoul and had worked as a native proofreader for about 15 years. After coming back to Japan I acquired a certificate in teaching Japanese. My proficiency in Korean is the 6 level of TOPIK. 저는 약 17년 동안 영어 교사로 근무했습니다. 그 후에 서울에 이사 가서 일본어 번역 네이티브 체크를 약 15년 동안 했습니다. 그래서 저는 한국 분들이 하는 일본어가 어떤지 잘 압니다. 일본에 돌아와서 일본어 교사 자격을 정식적으로 취득했습니다. 그리고 한국어 능력 시험(TOPIK) 6급을 받았습니다.
