Real-world examples of private lessons

Twice a week on weekdays, 20:00-20:50
(Company employee living in Japan)

Purpose

I use English at work and have little opportunity to use Japanese in either my workplace or my daily life.
I wanted to learn Japanese to maintain my Japanese language skills.

Why online private lessons?

I have a job, so I’m not able to make it to regular courses at a Japanese language school.
Also, with online private lessons, I can ask the teacher questions about what I want to know without worrying about other students.

Contents of the lessons

Practice necessary Japanese for typical and familiar situations
N2-level vocabulary and grammar practice

A comment from the teacher

At first, the student didn’t have a specific purpose of study. However, through our lessons, the student was able to decide to set a goal of passing JLPT N2.
However the purpose of the lessons is about more than just passing a test, so I also include activities in our lessons where the student can practice language skills that they find challenging.
For example, the student had a difficult time with Keigo (Japanese honorific expressions), so we worked on writing greeting cards to practice Keigo.

Saturdays every other week, 10:00-10:50 / 11:00-11:50
(Kudan alumnus living outside of Japan)

Purpose

I want to regain the conversation skills that I acquired when I was studying abroad in Japan.
I also want to pass JLPT N1.

Why online private lessons?

With online private lessons, I can schedule the lessons for times that are suitable for me.
At first, I took lessons for 50 minutes every Saturday, but I changed the schedule to two 50-minute periods per Saturday every other week after talking to the teacher.

Contents of the lessons

I see that the student enjoys talking in Japanese very much. Not only does he enjoy it, but he also responds positively to the feedback that I provide him.
He is now aiming to speak even better than he did when he was in Japan.
