Q. Why did you come to Japan?
A. I was always interested in education, Japanese language and design so after graduating from university I moved to Japan. In the final year of my industrial design course I made a small computer and some modular language learning software to study Japanese or English.
Q. What food do you like?
A. I like sweet foods but almost any type of food is okay. I just don’t really like shiokara (salted squid), nato (fermented soy beans) or grapefruit.
Depending on the class and students, lessons can be taught in Japanese if needed.
