Hi there! My name is Laoise. I have been studying Japanese for 8 years, and received my JLPT N3 qualification in December 2018. I also recently won the 18th JLTI National Japanese Speech Contest (March 2020). I have studied in Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto in 2016, and in Meiji Academy in Fukuoka in 2019. I have travelled extensively throughout Japan, visiting 9 cities, and would love the chance to share my love of the Japanese Language with you. I took the Leaving Cert Japanese exam myself (as an extra subject), in 2014, and achieved an A2 grade.
I studied Drama and Theatre Studies in Trinity College Dublin (2014-2018) where I trained in workshop facilitation, and have worked as in actor for 11 years, and so naturally I have a love of Japanese films an anime. As well as Japanese language teaching, I work as a theatre-maker, making bilingual (English and Japanese) plays that celebrate both languages and cultures.
I trained in workshop facilitation in Trinity College Dublin, and have spent a number of years as a Drama Teacher - so I'm well-versed in lively, fun classes that'll keep you interested!
Approach to Grinds:
I'm here to support you, and so can help you with whatever you're feeling unsure about. I can most efficiently work with you if you give me as much information as possible about yourself: what level your Japanese is, what you like/dislike about learning Japanese, what you feel confident/unsure about, and why you want to learn Japanese (this is particularly important, so we can figure out fun ways for you to improve, rather than just learning off lists of vocab and grammar!). I am not a native Japanese speaker, but I think this actually gives me an advantage in that I have extensive experience as learner: being in exactly the position you are in. I understand how to figure out Japanese from an English-speaker's perspective, which will be useful in assisting you on your language journey.
