Tiffany Song

Languages-Japanese

Kia ora and Konnichiwa ! My name is Tiffany Song and I am thrilled to join ANI as a Japanese teacher this year. I am originally from South Korea but I grew up here in Auckland, New Zealand. I have lived a couple of years in Japan I fell in love with Japanese culture and everything about the language. Since then, I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Japanese and TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) at the University of Auckland and recently completed a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Teaching at AUT.
I am passionate about promoting the joy of learning Japanese and multicultural education. In my classes, I like to mix things up with traditional stories, modern books, and even some fun videos and music. I believe that learning a language is more than just words and grammar—it’s about understanding and appreciating the culture behind it. I’m here to make your journey of learning a new language enjoyable and rewarding. Let’s explore this fascinating language together and have a great time along the way!
