Why study Japanese?
My past students have come to study Japanese for a variety of reasons.
Some have lived in Japan and want
to maintain contact with friends and colleagues,
or study for a qualification exam, such as the
GCSE or A-levels.
Some are simply going there on holiday and want to learn a little survival
Japanese. Others have an interest in Japanese culture, through
calligraphy, or even
and would like to learn more.
Still others have no particular connection with Japan, and just like the
challenge of learning something new.
Whatever your reason, studying Japanese can be a very rewarding
experience. It's different from studying the European languages that
many people opt for in secondary school. That makes it challenging in
some ways, but fun at the same time.
and I can help design a lesson plan that's right for you.
