I have a Bachelor's degree in Japanese and East Asian Studies. While working on my degree, I completed a study program abroad at Nihon University in Tokyo. After graduation I lived and worked in Hokkaido, Japan for 3 years. My job was primarily teaching ESL (English as a Second Language), but I occasionally did some local work as a translator and interpreter. I am currently working towards receiving an N2 certification in the JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test).
I will make and provide worksheets after most classes for students to practice what they learned. We will go over these worksheets as a class during the review portion of the following lesson. The worksheets are usually 2-3 pages long. 
 5 files available upon enrollment
Students should come to each class with something to write with and something to write on. For students that are more serious about taking all of my courses, I also recommend using folders or a binder to organize printouts and notes between each class section. Students should ideally have access to a printer as well for the worksheets. If this is not possible, they could work around this by writing down worksheet answers in their notes.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
A written report is available at the end of the course upon request.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
I make flashcards on Quizlet to go along with most lessons. Using Quizlet is not required for this class. This is only used as a supplementary tool for students that want a little extra help reviewing new words and characters. This is a free outside resource, but please note that it requires creating a Quizlet account to use.
