About me

I joined LSE in October 2014 and I am currently teaching on non-degree beginner and intermediate courses. I was awarded an Education Excellence Award in June 2016 at LSE. I am also a Japanese lecturer in a Japanese School for over twenty years and an examiner for Edexcel GCE A Level Japanese. I have been teaching Japanese as a foreign language for about twenty years to students from diverse backgrounds. I have also had extensive experience in dealing with business people, in particular, employees of banks, diplomats and other financial institutions as I worked in financial contexts in the City; as well as contributing to financial articles for Asahi Shimbun (Japanese national newspaper) regularly.

I hold a BA in Japanese literature in Japan and a MA in Tourism Management in the UK. I have studied Japanese and Chinese classical literature as well. I am always interested in developing innovative teaching and learning.

About the Language Centre

LSE is a centre for the study of the social sciences and this is reflected in its Language Centre.

Our courses focus on language and society, encouraging you to learn how to use language in the contexts you would like to live, study and work in. We teach people to speak languages, but also teach about language (socio-linguistics and intercultural communication) and offer a range of courses on literature and society. 

We offer English for Academic Purposes programmes, BSc programmes a range of undergraduate degree courses that can be taken as part of a degree and a range of language options that can be taken outside of a degree programme. All programmes and courses relate language study and support to the fields of interest of social science students.

The Language Centre is part of LSE’s Academic and Professional Development Division.
