Do you want to spend more time studying Japanese, but find that plugging away at the same old learning materials is getting old or stressing you out? If so, tadoku may be one way to refresh your approach!
Through tadoku (多読 - extensive reading), we will explore a new way of reading, introducing techniques that help you to relax into and enjoy learning Japanese.
Tadoku is an increasingly popular method of learning Japanese, and is a lot of fun! Recently, I've been using Japanese in many of my one-on-one lessons, and the feedback has been great. Our lessons are more lighthearted, and I can really see the difference in my students.
If you're tired of traditional learning methods - or simply hammering away at the same textbook or app every day - I can recommend giving tadoku a go. After all, we learn the most when we're having a good time!
The Tadoku Taster was an enjoyable introduction to a new tool for improving my Japanese. It's hard to find Japanese reading material at beginner's level so this was a pleasant surprise. Elly and Hitomi san are positive and encouraging.
The Tadoku Taster was a great way to learn about Tadoku. It made me realise that I could start using the limited Japanese knowledge I have already by reading short stories. I can't wait to go through more books!
I really enjoyed the Tadoku Taster! The class was really fun and interactive, I felt really comfortable even as a beginner. After the Taster I now have a good idea of what Tadoku is as a tool to learn Japanese and Elly and Hitomi shared a lot of interesting Tadoku materials to read too!
