皆さま、こんばんは。

Today, one of my N1 students who was from NTU said that she visited the ASEAN Japan Career Fair (ASEAN CAREER FAIR with JAPAN) .

A lot of interviewers know that she can speak Japanese and started to speak to her in Keigo. Unfortunately, she said except for はじめまして。私は~です,she cannot say any 敬語。Another foreigner who was beside her and was able to speak 敬語、got an offer straight away. She then felt that how “small” she was and people from the neighboring countries were able to speak in 敬語 very well.

Having said that, she told me she wanted to join my 敬語 class for my Intermediate class next week where i will talk about 上下関係, 敬語, etc.

So, how should you introduce yourself in 敬語 when you go for an interview? Here’s how

初めておめにかかります。 (はじめまして)
わたくしは_____(名前)と申します。
本日、お忙しいところ、お時間をいただき、誠にありがとうございます。

If you are interested to join my free 敬語クラス next week, feel free to pm me.

では、失礼いたします。
ケン
anyone else? :p

Thought i can grow with the school but too bad , it was established in 2004
and the contract is expired. Sensei mentioned something like contract over , aoba will be closed and she's returning to Japan after 10 to 12 years in Singapore. I think because of rent and poor business that discourage them to renew the contract and continue operation

Really appreciative to those who took time to attend the free prep class and Keigo class.
For the free prep class, i shared info on how to score points, etc
For the Keigo class, i shared info on the 5 different types of Keigo, as well as 電話応対。

Enjoy, the full version of Masayume Chasing

Yea, im looking for Japanese classes too. I'm considering between JCS, Ikoma and Yano as I've heard some people recommend it. I'm not sure tho. Cant seem to find out the price for JCS tho, not sure where to find it on the web page.

Do you guys have any recommendations on which school would be better?
Personally i study at JCS and ikoma. I prefer ikoma as it gives load of notes and i find the teacher really teach the basic from scratch. But if fee is a consideration then JCS is cheaper. I still studying with Ikoma till now

Konnichiwa (Hello) ! Just like to ask, how many on this thread here actually learn Japanese language online instead of going to some school to learn it? I mean, is it even possible to learn Japanese online?

I used this site and I admit it's fun but a very, very tough and challenging language. =D

Japanese language conversation practice/basic intermediate advanced Japanese

皆さん

こんにちは!

It is possible to learn Japanese language online, especially if it's just memorising alphabets, basic vocabulary and grammar. I heard Bunka language school and NUS language school in dohby ghaut are good.

I also teach Japanese language and provide conversational practice.
I am fluent in daily Japanese language conversation, have JLPT N1 and am familiar with MOELC Japanese syllabus.

Please feel free to email me at michelleangsy @gmail.com (without the space)
and we can discuss what kind of lessons you like. (日常会話にはロールプレーがお勧めです!)

I prefer meeting up in the west or central areas.
depending on level and distance, 1 hour $25-$70.

よろしくお願いします。
Michelle
