Japanese Chinese / Mandarin



Private Japanese Tutor in Kuala Lumpur and Online

Let's start learning simple Japanese

(Available online and face-to-face classes)
Hi everyone, I am a Malaysian.
I speak Mandarin, Japanese, Cantonese, English and basic Bahasa Melayu.
I do provide classes to teach Japanese and Chinese.

Japanese classes:
can be conducted in Mandarin, Cantonese or basic English.
Chinese classes:
can be conducted in Cantonese, Japanese or basic English.
Textbooks that will be used: Minna no nihongo, Marugoto.

Teaching style can be adjusted to meet the needs of the students.
For example, use regular textbooks + watching movies/cartoons, or dialogue + playing games to teach.

Available online and face-to-face classes.
Content of face-to-face classes
1) Offers the option of going to a public place near the student to teach
2) Offer the option to teach at the student's home (students under 12 will be given priority, prior zoom or skype meeting required).

It is recommended to meet in public places such as cafes, malls and fast food restaurants. My own preferred location is Midvalley, or alternatively we can discuss where to meet.

** Face-to-face classes will charge extra for transportation per session ( petrol + toll + parking + time required for commuting).
**No extra transportation fee if it is within 7km distance from my location.
**Extra transportation fee range is estimated around RM15~RM60

Currently available class times
Saturday and Sunday

1) It takes an estimated 1 month to master Hiragana/Katakana (1-2 weeks for fast learners who are diligent in memorizing and practicing writing 25-50 times a day).
2) The official estimate for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test is that it takes 6-8 months to fully master the N5 level, and about 6 months to 1 year for the N4 level. (In fact, if learners are willing to spend more time on the course and self-study, it will shorten the overall time required).

I am appreciate it if you could have a talk with me before making payment. If you feel after your consultation that the course is not for you, you can simply reply to me that it is not suitable, please do not have read messages without replying :)

About myself
Mandarin is the native language I have been using since I was a kid. They may seem complicated, but once you understand how Mandarin works, you understand that it's actually quite interesting.

I studied Japanese at a language school in Japan for about two years (the reason for studying was because I wanted to understand what the game entailed), and passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test N2 and N1 in two years, taking classes at a specialized school for the remaining two years.
After graduating and returning to Malaysia, I started using Japanese in my career as a Japanese translator and coordinator for a CG production company, and then have been working in the medical industry as an administrative and HR assistant. Currently, I am a full-time freelance Japanese speaker, primarily working on document translation, short-term projects and teaching languages.

I believe that the success rate of any language process is higher if people who want to learn Japanese persist in their passion and perseverance for learning the language.
I would think so because I studied abroad in Japan even though I did not know the basic fifty sounds of Japanese, and I was only motivated by the desire to learn Japanese.
I hope that my past study abroad experience will help those interested in learning Japanese to master simple Japanese and Mandarin in their areas of interest, and to enjoy and feel the cultural appeal of Japanese and Mandarin in the process, so I welcome anyone interested in learning Japanese and Mandarin to contact me.
