Q: How are your lessons?
I try to use as much Japanese as possible, depending on the student's level of understanding. I also help them to guess what the dialogue is about from listening and hints, rather than giving them all the information right away. In this way, I try to prepare them for the Japanese conversations they'll come across in their daily lives in Japan. I also try to make them feel relaxed so that they can express themselves easily.
Q: What do you like about teaching?
To me, teaching Japanese also means learning the culture of my students and sharing my own at the same time. Thanks to my students, I can learn more. Additionally, I always appreciate hearing about their interest in Japan.
Q: What are your hobbies?
I like to visit new places, walk in nature, and try delicious local foods wherever I go. I also like visiting museums. Next, I'm interested in trying hot yoga when I have the chance.
