My former students in Japan

Nationality Motivation
English  He was a manager of English and French language schools in Osaka. He passed JLPT (Japannese Language Proficiency Test) Level 2 and was trying to pass JLPT Level 1 but found it difficult to study on his own. He had tried studying at a Japanese school but without success. We used a textbook, which he chose, and I produced some other materials which he found useful. Occasionally, I made mini-tests to motivate him.
French  He was a magician and wanted to show his tricks in Japanese. Also he had a Japanese girlfriend who had a son. He was communicating with her in English and could not communicate with her son, so he decided to learn Japanese. I taught him formal Japanese for his tricks and casual expressions that would help him make friends with her son.
English  He was an English teacher who was studying to become a doctor. He did not want to use a textbook, so he wrote some dialogues in English and I translated them into Japanese. We practiced having conversations using the dialogues. I also produced some other materials for him.
American  He was an English teacher. He had been in Japan for five years but could not speak Japanese at all. He was starting to feel embarrassed. Although he decided to learn Japanese, he did not know where to start. He did not feel comfortable in a group, so we had one-to-one lessons. He started to show interest in proverbs and idioms, so we focused on that. He said that proverbs often helped to break the ice.
Australian  He was an English teacher who was also a maths teacher in Australia. Although he was enjoying staying in Japan, he was using English all the time and starting to wonder what he had achieved there. He suddenly felt that he had to learn Japanese before going back to Australia and started to talk to Japanese people in his local pub but realized that he did not even know how to introduce himself in Japanese. He also wanted to talk to Japanese people when traveling around, so I produced some other materials to cover those situations.
Filipino  I had some 3-week-intensive classes for Fillipinos who wanted to work in Japan. I taught them how to speak to their superiors and how to use casual forms to their colleagues.
