"I became a Japanese language teacher because I wanted a job that would make the lives of foreigners living in Japan more enjoyable."

Why did you become a Japanese teacher?

I lived in China for two years and learned Chinese there. I started from a place where I could not speak Chinese at all, but I found a very good teacher and gradually became able to speak Chinese. Not only was it useful in my daily life, but I also began to find the Chinese language itself interesting. I became interested in many things, and my life in China became more enjoyable. I became a Japanese language teacher because I wanted to do a job that would make the lives of foreigners living in Japan more enjoyable and make them want to use Japanese more, just like my teacher.

What do you like about teaching Japanese?

I am very happy when I see my students say what they want to say in Japanese, phrases they were afraid to say at first, but can say with more and more confidence. It is also an enjoyable experience to learn interesting and unique aspects of the Japanese language that Japanese people do not notice.

How are your lessons?

You will become familiar with the phrase by saying it out loud a lot. During conversation practice, I will also tell you what emotion you should be feeling when you say this phrase and what tone you should be using. Questions are welcome. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have.

What are your hobbies?

My hobby is traveling. I especially enjoy visiting temples, shrines, and other historical places. The most impressive place I visited recently was Usa Jingu Shrine in Oita Prefecture. There are several shrines in the mountains, and it was very pleasant to walk around them. I also like to watch manzai and Osaka comedies. It is fun to laugh out loud and loudly.
