Beginner Class

みなさん、こんにちは。I teach private lessons here in Austin and have been hosting the conversation meetings for over a month. I've noticed that there are many beginners who are learning the similar things in school or teaching themselves. So, I've decided to offer a 1 hour long small class for the beginners.

In this class we can look at some of the things you're currently working on in your own textbook or some questions you may have from watching anime (bringing questions is a great idea).  You're welcome to bring your own books/study materials.  I can also teach you some new grammatical structures from my lesson plans, vocabulary, writing hiragana & katakana (kanji, too), and work on pronunciation as well. Basically, the idea is to cover and to strengthen the aspects that we don't get to work on at the fast-paced conversation meetups.  For those of you who don't write or read hiragana, I suggest you work on it first before coming to this class.  If you like, please send me your email and I'll be happy to send you some hiragana practice materials.

The cost is $10 per person upon arriving. Cash or check.

1. black and red pens

2. paper

3. audio recorder (smart phone will do)

4. a cushion (if you don't like sitting on the hardwood floor for an hour)

5. clipboard or lap board to write on (if you like)

6. $10 payment


If you want me to send you study materials, please send me your email address.  We'll use them in the class.  In the comment section please share with us what you're currently working on and/or wanting to improve so I can better prepare.  I probably have some of my lesson plans that fit your current level.  If you have access to a color printer, you can print them out (they MUST be printed out in color).  If you'd like that, send me your email address.  If you don't have access to a color printer, please share with us.  Someone should be able to print it out for you.


It is at my apartment. No gate code.  PLEASE KEEP OFF THE GRASS when you walk from the parking lot to my place!  My place is on the second floor in the building #9.  If you get there after 2PM, please come in without knocking.  We'll sit on the hardwood floor so bring cushions if you like.


Park anywhere.

    It was really good and much better than the first class now that we got the introductions out of the way. I had a lot of fun. My place as a venue was good. If you haven't already, please send me your email and a number I can call/text you so we can get a hold of each other on the day of the class. (My phone is back on now.) Also, if you want me to print out study materials, I'll be happy to. It's $5 each. Also, if you get the study materials printed out, I suggest you get a binder. There are at least 5 materials I can give you. きょうは ありがとうございました。
