Start to Learn the Japanese Language
Learning a foreign language is never an easy task, especially when the alphabet is different.
When you start learning Japanese, you will tell yourself it would be easier to learn Italian or Spanish!
But, if you’ve ever dreamed of living in Japan, taking a language course in Kyoto or spending you holidays in Tokyo, you will need Japanese language lessons to, at least, learn the polite phrases important in Japanese culture.
On the Superprof platform, your private teacher will start by teaching you the Japanese alphabet, the fundamental basis for speaking Japanese and mastering Japanese writing (i.e., kanji, hiragana and hiragana katakana).
The Japanese culture is so rich that a year of private Japanese lessons will not even be enough to learn everything about the land of the rising sun and its language.
What You Will Learn With a Japanese Tutor
Language learning requires an effective method and adequate teaching materials.
For example, the Minna no Nihongo and the Assimil method are two excellent tools that have been proven to be effective.
The best way to learn Japanese quickly is with a private tutor. However, the learner will need to work on their Japanese vocabulary on a daily basis. And, of course, acquiring a English-Japanese dictionary can be very helpful.
Regular lessons will also improve your Japanese reading and writing skills, which should help you reach a common language level.
Our experienced teachers offer Japanese conversation classes, introduction to Japanese business, Japanese vocabulary courses and intensive training to prepare for assessment tests, such as the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT).
Japanese language courses are open to all levels, from beginner to advanced, from A1 to C2, from primary school to university.
Grammar, vocabulary, conversation, pronunciation, writing and reading are taught face-to-face, at the home or by webcam with a Japanese tutor or a graduate of Japanese didactics and languages.
Learn Japanese in Order to Work in Japan
In addition to the satisfaction of Japanese oral comprehension as a second language, you will have something great to add to your curriculum vitae: being a Japanese speaker will allow you to try expatriation with a work-holiday program or allow you to be sponsored by a company to work in Japan.
Although the cost of living on the Japanese archipelago is high, the third largest economy in the world will offer you better salaries as a result.
In addition, you will learn more about life in Japan and its history.
One final note, the Japanese language has only five vowels (A, I, U, E, O) and the sounds are found in English. The grammatical system of Japanese should, therefore, pose fewer problems than Korean or Mandarin Chinese classes!
