SPEAK LIKE A NATIVE IN 1 MONTH
In this course, you will learn the very basics of Japanese language. This is your perfect start to learning Japanese if you are not sure how to study it. This is an approximately 6 hour long course and should take around a month to complete if you study it half an hour every day. Everything you need to understand and master basic level Japanese is in this course!
100% TAUGHT BY A NATIVE
This course is entirely taught by myself, a native speaker in Japanese, which means a lot when it comes to language learning. A native speaker knows all the tricks: what's to be prioritised, what is easily misunderstood, what part is the "textbook Japanese" that doesn't sound natural or even used in real life.
LEARN SMART WITH EFFECTIVE METHODS
Curriculum was designed based on best methods (from years of teaching experience) to start studying Japanese. A lot of Japanese tutorials and courses out there do not teach the language effectively, such as too much grammar, no exercises to practise and use your brain to think in Japanese, and giving too many example phrases without any grammar.
From my experience of teaching beginners, it's proven that the best method is one that emphasises the balance of grammar-example-practice. And this course teaches you in exactly that manner.

Hello everyone, I was raised in Japan and lived there until middle school graduation before I moved to New Zealand. I have lived in New Zealand ever since and I am currently an undergraduate student at the University of Auckland.
Teaching Japanese has always been one of my interests since I came to New Zealand because I was really amazed when I found out how popular Japanese anime, manga, food etc are overseas all over the world. I also came across a lot of people who would like to get to know more about Japan and learn Japanese. Being a bilingual native Japanese speaker, I decided to teach Japanese in my free time. I used a very popular website here in Auckland to find students that were interested in Japanese tuition. I have been doing 1 on 1 tutoring with people here in NZ for many years now.
Being a native speaker, I will focus on providing you with lessons and guidance that are useful and effective in real-life situations where you need to speak/listen/read Japanese, such as conversations in Japanese in different contexts, watching Japanese movies, anime, reading manga, viewing Japanese websites and so on. I can give you tips and advice on the common mistakes foreigners make, the differences between what you learn 'on book' and what actually happens in Japan, so you know you are spending your time and effort on the 'right' things.
Now that I have some experience in teaching, I want to take my Japanese teaching to the next step and reach a wider audience, which is the reason I chose Udemy.
