🇺🇸 アメリカン・イングリッシュ英会話を学びませんか?日本人の方(18歳以下)の為の初心者向けの英会話レッスンです。アメリカのカリフォルニア州ロサンゼルスに20年以上在住しております。今すぐ役立つアメリカ英語の英会話をスカイプでお教え致します。世界各国のどこからでも学んで頂く事ができます。

🌟英語には色んなアクセントがありますが、アメリカのロサンゼルスの標準な英語が1番世界で使わせています。エンターテイメント業界があるハリウッド、また世界的にビジネスを広げている会社はアメリカの会社が1番多いので、標準なアメリカン英語の発音を使う事が好ましいのです。また、アメリカのニュース・キャスターは全てロサンゼルス(北アメリカ)の発音に統一されています。例えばアメリカのテキサス州やテネシー州など他の州は日本語と同じように方言や強いアクセントがあります。発音が違うと”田舎から来たの?”と思われてしまいがちなのが正直なところ現実です。日本語で例えると、東京弁が標準語ですが、九州弁や秋田弁など習ってしまうと仕事や普通の会話で使えなくなりますね。それと同じで標準なアメリカ・ロサンゼルス発音(北アメリカ)の英語が最も好ましいのです。

🎖信頼なるバックグラウンド記章バッチ付き教師🎖
Takelessons.comを通しアメリカのバックグラウンド確認調査にパスし犯歴、訴訟歴、性的暴行歴、破産歴、税務滞納歴、交通違反、飲酒運転歴の全く無い教師として安心して未成年のお子様を預けて頂けます。(英語のできる方は、このプロフィールの私の名前の下にある” Background Check”をクリックしてご覧下さい。)

🌟ここでの英会話レッスンは日頃ロサンゼルスで良く使われる日常会話のレッスンや、日本人に難しい発音、アメリカと日本のカルチャーや考え方の違い、テキストを使わず生きた本当の英会話を学びたい方、またアメリカのハリウッド情報なども、お伝えして行きます。

Hi guys. I've been teaching Spanish and English for over 20 years and my students have always gone on to C1 of the CEF. since the first few lessons, you'll be able to COMPREHEND, SPEAK, READ and WRITE, , and as time goes on you'll be able specialize in C1, I have developed my own technique but of course I use spanish sources for this matter. Every time I am in front of students, I feel just like when I have been in a concert in front of thousands of people. I really love teaching. see u soon!

I would really love the opportunity to help you improve your English abilities. I believe in using examples, scenarios, conversation and visual aids to keep the class interesting. I listen to students needs in order to let you guide the lesson topics to where your learning needs and goals will be achieved. I am just a subject matter expert and a facilitator of your learning. I believe strongly in the value of education, self-learning and continuous learning. You will be a better learner if you approach each topic from your interests and from a discovery approach. You may find that learning English while also learning about other topics (business, careers, hobbies, interests, travel, culture, etc.) makes it more valuable.

Excellent teacher!
Alexander
It’s been more than 2 years since I started my lessons with Eric and I suppose I was lucky to find such a professional with a strong business and PhD background. It was important for me to develop my verbal communication abilities in finance and economics and Eric was definitely the right choice. Both his personal and professional skills make the studying process smooth and efficient and I really see the results as I have become much more confident when making presentations and also I passed successfully CFA Exam Level I. Apart from relevant and coherent agendas for our well-structured lessons with intensive homework preparation materials I can also emphasize his punctuality and friendliness. He is a really good tutor and I highly recommend him!

English Language Conversations for Beginners

Although words may be limited and simple, it is still possible to enjoy conversations in English even if you are a beginner. I think that it’s essential to be able to express basic needs and to clearly express your identity. Let’s get started with the very basics and then we’ll build from there.
