My motivation to teach Japanese is simple, yet inspiring. Japanese is a beautiful language created on an isolated island with a unique history. I enjoy sharing the joy of communication in my mother tongue with my students, while being able to respect and understand each other’s culture.
Sushi, being one of the most famous Japanese foods abroad, is also one of my favourites. “Omusubi” are yummy rice balls and a handy food in Japan. Simple “ume” (plum) “omusubi” are my absolute favourite. I also love “sansei” (edible wild plants), which are only available in a particular season.
