I teach Japanese language classes to international students. I do my best to keep up to date on trendy topics in Japan to look for topics for my classes. However, most international students know more about Japanese animation and video games than I do. I also enjoy being taught by my students in this way.
My research has focused on the learning of Japanese grammar, and lately I am also interested in teaching methods for writing. I set up a working group to study methods of teaching report writing, and together we created the “Tohoku University Report Writing Handbook” (the Academic Affairs Council and the Institute for Excellence in Higher Education, Tohoku University, 2017).
