I am grateful for the GLN who has given me the teaching opportunity of my native language for such a rewarding purpose, “using language as a tool to help fix our world”.   My passion in teaching language has been growing again since I started appreciating the Japanese culture a couple of years ago. I once taught English to Japanese people when I was in Japan and had a great time with my students.  Now I teach Japanese here at GLN and very excited about for this opportunity. 

I feel privileged that I am a native speaker of Japanese language, which is often ranked one of the most challenging languages to learn and at that same time one of the most popular languages that people want to learn.  It is my pleasure to teach Japanese and share my knowledge and experience of Japanese culture with people who are interested in my home country.
