I passed the “Japanese language teaching competency test (日本語教育能力検定試験)” in 2009, which means I am also a qualified Japanese teacher.
I have taught Japanese to foreign students (Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Vietnam, Mongolia, Belgium, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Kazakhstan, Iceland, Ukraine, Russia, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Taiwan, Netherlands e.t.c ) as a Japanese tutor or a teaching assistant in Japanese classes at Kyoto University and in private lessons.
My favorite method for teaching Japanese is “the direct method”, but from my experience, I know sticking to it too much is not so good.
In my opinion, the way of teaching should be flexible!
What I am proud of is ….that all the students of mine have successfully achieved their goals!!!
Thus, I am very confident in my ability to teach Japanese 😀
