Introduction (from LinkedIn):
There is nothing better than seeing how international experiences change the lives of my students. I launched and managed an international exchange programme between colleges in the UK and Japan. Moreover, I prepare students for studying abroad through increasing their confidence to communicate and discussing intercultural issues with them. At Kansai University, I have the pleasure of being a member of the Study Abroad Committee in the Faculty of Foreign Language Studies, so I can help students to achieve their dreams overseas.
My Ph.D. research explored inter-cultural issues that arose following the introduction of a communicative curriculum, which required new approaches in teaching and learning English. For my present research, I have been awarded a "Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research" (Kakenhi) to study factors that influence Japanese students' capacity to speak English.
