Boost your ability in Japanese

Pay it

25 value - Virtual OK - Posted Apr 04, 2020

We can set up a 30-minute session via audio/video call.

I will give you some basic advice as to how to approach the Japanese Language--from a "Western" point of view.
Many people consider the Japanese language to be difficult to learn. I've lived in Japan, and I've learned enough Japanese to appreciate it's beauty and order. It is a rich language, full of nuance. It also has fewer "irregularities" than many "Western" languages. Hence, with a short amount of guidance, anyone who feels daunted with the task of learning Japanese can adopt a mindset that allows the language to fall into place more easily. I'll provide an overview of the ordered nature of the language, and how to use that to gain ground on conversational basics very quickly. I will recommend certain books that will help provide this point of view. I will also answer any specific questions you have about grammar and structure. I'll be happy to practice conversation with you, and to dissect anything new or confusing. You can do this!

That was easily the most impactful conversation I have had since joining Simbi. I actually thought I was already inspired enough about Simbi. Well, I am even more IN. I am thrilled and honored to help however I can. I believe this is going to be FUN! :-) Tikor Foep (William H. Carlson, Sr.) Founder, Tikor Foep & Carzwell ❤️🌏☮️ show more

Excellent. Highly recommend. This brought the writing of an article to a whole new level. Paul essentially "animated" the article and provided a new w...ay (for me at least) to explain an idea. I need more time with this concept before I fully understand it, as I have never experienced this done to anything I have written before. The sense, though, was "movie quality". I like more

About Paul Melville

I am dedicated to building a world where healing and mutual support within the community are more central and we all live in balance with the world around us. My lifelong journey has led me here. ... Even 2 years ago, I never would have predicted it. Over 10 years ago I discovered that I have a gift for Energy Healing. This was the beginning of a shift and many ripples in my life. Some days are difficult and other days I feel beyond-fortunate to have seen what I've seen and to have been where I've been. Mostly, I have learned about my core--my core desires, my core values, my core priorities. Mistakes along the way--yes, plenty. I continue forward, my feet on my path. This is mine to tread. I find beauty in everything around me, and I enjoy lifting spirits of fellow humans. I like to encourage people--to help them find their courage. I believe in you. Tell me your story, and you will find an ally. I believe that we can uplift each other and that by doing so, we all become stronger. This is the true evolution for humanity. show more
