研究内容のココが魅力!My specialty is to help students learn to speak English at a much higher level, beyond daily conversation. To do this, we study many interesting social topics such as crime, guns, health, and psychological problems. We learn vocabulary, reading, and discussion at the same time. It's great fun and students can grow fast in their English speaking.

・English 2b (English speaking)
・英語音声学

社会貢献・地域連携の実績I work as a pastor of New Life International Church. We are a bilingual (English and Japanese) church in Kofu, Japan. I am active in leading church activities, teaching, counseling, and helping people who are in trouble. In March 2007, I organized a 4-day volunteer trip for 5 workers (including myself) in the area of the Noto Peninsual Earthquake (能登半島地震). In July 2007, I organized another 4-day volunteer trip to the Chuuetsu Offshore Earthquake (新潟県中越沖地震) area for 5 volunteer workers (self included). I have visited people in jail, helped the homeless, and led church groups to visit nursing homes in the Kofu City area.
