About the Teacher

YUKO(ゆうこ)

こんにちは!(Konnichiwa)

I am a teacher at the Inner West Nihongo Academy. I was born, raised, and worked in Kyoto, Japan. So, I am obviously a native Japanese speaker! 

 

I am a qualified Japanese teacher. In Japan, I taught students from overseas at several high schools as a JSL (Japanese as a second language) teacher. In Australia, I have worked at a Japanese community language school and also taught business Japanese at a company. My teaching style is friendly, interactive, and informative. Don't worry about making mistakes. I believe that students learn best when they feel comfortable trying out new things!

 

I love traveling, reading, watching movies, and studying languages. (I can speak Japanese, Mandarin and English) I can share my experience of how I learned 3 languages and give you tips & advice to you.

 

I enjoy teaching because I learn a lot from students and I love to see students smiling at their "Yes, I did it!" moment.

Let's have fun studying Japanese together!

 BEGINNER COURSE 

ENROLLING NOW

This course is for students who have just started to learn Japanese or students who are currently studying Japanese at the beginner level at school. (For the students who have learnt Hiragana & Katakana)

In this course, you will learn the basics of conversation in daily life with visual and audio materials. You will be given various fun activities to develop essential skills such as speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

 

The teacher will talk to you in Japanese as much as possible but English is also used when necessary. Kanji (Chinese characters) are gradually introduced to give students authentic Japanese reading & writing experience. ( Kanji is thought to be one of the trickiest part of learning Japanese.) The aim of these course is to expand your expressive ability and turn your grammatical knowledge into real practical communication skills. So, you will actually be able to enjoy talking with native Japanese people! You will also learn the culture (old & new) and unique Japanese values to foster intercultural understanding.

“There are no Japanese classes that suit me in high school.”

“After graduating from a Japanese community language school or leaving school halfway,    I have no opportunity to use Japanese.”

“I want to study Japanese and learn more about Japan.”

“I want to enjoy manga and anime in Japanese.”

“I want to talk to relatives in Japanese.”

“I want friends with a Japanese background.”

“I can speak Japanese but I am not good at reading and writing.”

“I want to be more confident in my Japanese” etc.

  

This class is for students with a variety of desires and needs.  In the lessons, you will study with practical and fun materials such as stories and articles of various genres, easy news, videos, J-pop, and more. This allows you to experience different types of Japanese, such as Japanese for spoken and written, for men and women, and honorific expressions, etc. You will learn KANJI as well.

Since the lessons are basically conducted in Japanese, a certain level of Japanese proficiency is required.

I hope this class will be a place for you to learn about Japanese culture and value, then think about how you can incorporate such a great heritage in your life.
