Lesson Details

Japanese

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I'm a student at UNCC studying Japanese language and culture. I have been studying Japanese for 5 years and I am currently working on my Japanese translation certificate. Japanese is a very difficult language to learn( particularly for native English speakers.) Japanese is something I am very passionate about and I love helping others share that passion with me. I think a Japanese tutor is important for anyone picking up the language, as there are some aspects of it that are hard for English speakers to digest. I think having a Native English speaker teach tremendously helps individuals grasp a better understanding of the fundamentals and ultimately leads to having a more solid foundation to learn upon. My goals are not only to help students learn Japanese, but to also recognize basic linguistic pattern thats will help them understand the relationship between Japanese and English.

I've been learning Japanese for 5 years! It's been a passion of mine ever since I started learning it in high school. From the very first lesson I fell in love with not only the language, but the culture as well. I believe understanding Japanese culture is just as important as grammar when it comes to learning Japanese. Context goes a long way when it comes to understanding the language. Because of this, I've tried to expose myself as much as possible to Japanese culture. I should warn potential language learners, Japanese is a difficult language. That being said, I it is very satisfying and rewarding to learn and utilize. I think anyone is capable of learning Japanese as long as it is something they are passionate about.
