I have studied Japanese almost all my life. In fact, I have even lived in Japan, off and on, for a total of five years. There are many fascinating and fun things I would like to teach and share with you, my students, about Japan and its language. At the same time, I am looking forward to learning more about all other subjects and ideas from you. As you can see, I have a passion for learning new things, which I hope you share. If we work together, we can make this year truly enjoyable and rewarding.
