Hello everyone. Konnichiwa. I am a Japanese bilingual teacher at school 1, 2, and 4.

Most of my students come from Japan or speak Japanese at home. Therefore they need to learn English as a second language. It is a challenge for them to learn English at the beginning because they have to learn English and the culture (American culture) at same time. I understand the differences between Japanese culture and American culture. For example, Japanese people usually don’t look at one’s eyes directly when they talk to a person because it is rude, especially to elder people or higher ranking people (including teachers).  On the other hand, American people look at one’s eyes directly when they talk to a person because it shows respect. As you see, there is a big culture difference. It could cause a misunderstanding between a Japanese person and an American person.  As a Japanese bilingual teacher, I will teach my students English and American culture as they need. That way, my students will learn English effectively and enjoy their American life.
