Instructor

My name is Fumiko Miura and I am the instructor of Nihongo Labo Rotterdam. I am a certified Japanese language instructor (with Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test qualification). Nihongo Labo Rotterdam is established in 2016, and since then I offer private and group lessons to students with various goals.

In Tokyo, I was teaching Japanese at J’s Language School in Ebisu, Shibuya-ku. There I taught Japanese language to students aged from 5 to 55, from Asia, to Europe, Australia, and America. There I taught Japanese conversation for daily and business purpose, combining various lesson materials to match studens’ individual needs.  I have also given trainings for Japanese Language Proficiency Test, with successful results. In addition, I have taught Japanese to many children, both at private school and at Minato-ku municipal elementary school, with fun and interesting ways.
Besides private and group lessons, I teach at Japanese Saturday School in Rotterdam.

Born in Aichi pref. Japan, I have lived in Texas, Kobe, Rotterdam, Tokyo and now back in Rotterdam again. After having graduated from Kobe City University of Foreign Language, I worked for Japanese and American companies in Kansai area. In 2001 I came to live in Rotterdam, have completed Dutch language courses, and graduated from the Faculty of Social Sciences of Erasmus University Rotterdam.

I enjoy singing songs of Okinawa and Yaeyama along with Sanshin (Okinawan three stings).
