I am a native speaker of Japanese, born and raised in Japan. After graduation from a Japanese university in Kyoto, Japan, I studied at a graduate school in the United States for a higher degree. I majored in Japanese Language and Pedagogy, hoping to become a teacher of Japanese in the U.S. My dream eventually came true and got many years of teaching experiences as an Instructor of Japanese at universities and community colleges in Oregon, California, Virginia and Washington, USA.
Recently I came back to Japan, and decided to continue to teach Japanese online at Teachat.
We used the following textbooks for elementary and intermediate Japanese courses at the universities and community colleges which I taught.
1) Genki げんき
2) Nakama なかま
If you have these textbooks now or are interested in using them (and they are available where you live) as your textbook here at Teachat with me, we can use them for our lessons.
Of course, other textbooks will be fine if you prefer. It is also fine not to use a specific textbook. I will do my best to give you lessons you want. 一緒に楽しく日本語を勉強しましょう。 Let's have fun lessons together!
