〇教員メッセージ

My focus is on intercultural understanding, but I also do some research in English education, particularly related to how short-term study abroad programs can influence students, and how educators can make those types of programs more effective for the students that participate in them. I am currently involved in public relations for our campus, so I often go out to high schools in the prefecture to talk about our campus, or present information to high school students who come to our campus.  My goal is to help give the students here a broader perspective on the world, and help them to use English as a tool to enrich their lives. 


〇主な担当授業

・Culture and Guiding (2nd Year Fall Semester)

Students learn about how to guide visitors from other countries around various locations in Shimane in English. We try to look at the culture, history, and tourism spots through fresh eyes, and then consider how to communicate information about these topics to people unfamiliar with Japan.

・American Studies (1st Year Fall Semester)

Students learn about basic information about the United States of America, focusing on subjects including regional/cultural differences, history, government, and education. Students are encouraged to ask questions about social issues, and follow up with their own research as well.


〇地域貢献活動

I do translation work for local tourism maps and other tourist information.  I am often asked to give lectures on English and my experiences in Japan and with Japanese culture.  I have previously helped with the organization of an international food and drink event, and will again in the future.  I also am involved with the Matsue Japan-Germany Association and the San’in Japan-Ireland Association.
