Hello everyone! My name is Manuela and I am a highly qualified, experienced, and enthusiastic native Romanian teacher living in Japan and teaching English, French and Romanian at university level and some of the most prestigious Japanese companies. I also teach online private and group lessons. In Romania, I taught mainly high school students, but also junior high school students and adults. Therefore, I have more than 15 years’ experience teaching languages and also, I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Philology, English and French studies, a Master of Arts degree in Philology, Business English, and official teaching qualifications from Romania and the UK Government.
My hobbies are listening to music, travelling and learning foreign languages.
I know how hard it is to learn and speak a foreign language as I myself have studied four foreign languages, but I will do my best to help you achieve your dream of speaking Romanian. For example, I can help you with explanations in English and French, languages in which I am fluent and also, in Japanese and German, to the best of my ability.
My classes are interesting, varied, flexible and designed to reach your goals. I believe that one of the most important aspects in teaching is that students should have fun and feel comfortable while learning. Consequently, I encourage student-centered learning, which puts the students’ needs first and places them at the center of the learning process. In other words, this allows you to choose what you will learn and how you will learn.
I am also in favor of developing the four basic language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing, with a focus on speaking or any other skill, depending, of course, on what the student wishes to improve. We can also learn pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary together, as well as Business Romanian or anything else that you are interested in.
If you would like to learn Romanian in a fun and natural way, book a lesson with me. I look forward to meeting you and studying Romanian together!
