عني

Hello Verbling community, my name is Olúwaṣeun Tùmínínú Joseph. I am a 27-year old Nigerian and Yorùbá man. I have been teaching Yorùbá for the past 5 years.

I have taught students from the US, UK and Canada. I have also taught other Nigerians outside my ethnic group. I specialise in making complex topics really easy to understand and my teaching method focuses on each learner.

According to a 2018 revised paper titled "HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE?" published by the Cambridge University Press, there are mainly three(3) factors that influence the period of learning foreign languages; the Learning goal, the Learning environment and the Learner. I usually start off understanding my students using this method to help them achieve their goals in Yorùbá Language.

I use Microsoft PowerPoint to create easy-to-follow presentations for my classes. I also use audios through voice notes (on platforms like WhatsApp and Telegram) to aid pronounciation, and this includes folk songs that aid learning amongst other learning tools.

The four (4) proficiency areas of any modern language are; Speaking, Listening, Writing and Reading. With the use of; Microsoft PowerPoint slides for reading and pronounciation/music for listening, we will lead to the final two areas; Writing and Speaking respectively, through the use of feedbacks. The Verbling video system will make this very possible.

I believe that, learning the culture and history surrounding a certain language (especially a foreign one!) goes a long was in aiding the proficiency in it, hence the inclusion of Yorùbá culture and history in my teaching curriculum.

I look forward to helping you gain proficiency in the Yorùbá language!

Our trial lesson will focus on understanding three(3) areas;
-Learning goal (Why are you learning Yorùbá?)
-Learning environment (Who do you speak Yorùbá with?)
-Learner (Can I know you more?)

It is this knowledge that will help me create a proper personalised learning experience that will help you gain proficiency in the Yorùbá language. See you in our next session!
