What is Simple Gaijin?
Simple Gaijin Japanese Services is an online Japanese learning establishment that is geared towards young professionals, teenagers, college students, or anyone with a free-spirited attitude that want to learn one of the world's most difficult language, Japanese.
It was founded on July 5th, 2015 by Mike Viscusi in Asahi-shi, Chiba Prefecture Japan as he was finishing up his time as an English Teacher. At the moment, Simple Gaijin is based out of Flower Mound, Texas, but open to any one around the world.
As compared to other private Japanese tutors, Simple Gaijin has several distinct features that put us above the usual native Japanese teachers. Some of these features include...
- Learning Japanese from a Gaijin (a fellow American) that has stumbled through the pitfalls and traps of learning Japanese, something that all Native Japanese teachers never do since they live in the language.
- Using curriculum that is developed for college level students, and then making it even more simpler without the repetitive hassle that most college and schools use to teach Japanese.
- Using more media to supplement our lessons. We not only use anime, manga, and video game excerpts, but also movies, music, and cultural movies from the past as well. Getting to watch your Japanese in action as you learn it will help you make it stick more than reading it in a textbook and a workbook.
- We do not coddle our students like most native Japanese teachers do. If you make a mistake, I will tell you point blank. You are paying us good money to learn Japanese, and it is our job to make sure you get your money's worth, if not more.
