A message to you

My name is Yumi Yoshida. I’m a specialist teacher offering private classes for intermediate and advanced students.

Have you ever felt, ‘I wish I could express that in Japanese!’?

Improving your Japanese makes it easier and more convenient to work and form human relationships in Japan. 

However, many students cease their studies once they can manage everyday conversation.

The reason for that is threefold.

  1. The topics spoken about with Japanese friends and colleagues can be limited, making it hard to tell whether or not your level is improving.
  2. Videos, apps, and e-learning provide many chances to ‘input’ Japanese, but the lack of a partner limits the ‘output’ opportunities and restricts conversation skill improvement.
  3. It is hard to continue studying and practicing on your own without losing enthusiasm.

This private lesson is the perfect way to eliminate all three of those issues.

I will provide feedback on the areas of improvement and those in need of extra work, as well as devising conversation practice to suit your personal aims. Homework is also set for every class, ensuring there is no room for slacking off.

I will watch over you and support your independent Japanese study.

  1. 周りの日本人と話す話題が限られている。上達している感じがしない。
  2. 動画やアプリ、Eラーニングなどインプットの機会はあるけど、アウトプットの機会がない→ 相手がいないから会話力がつかない。
  3. 一人で勉強や練習をすると続けられない。つい怠けてしまう。
