I am interested in learners’ opinions and beliefs about learning. Recently, I have been studying how learners choose and evaluate learning activities, and the role of choice in learning.

I am interested in how we can learn a language while also learning other things. One teaching method is called CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning), which means teaching a subject (like history) in a foreign language (like English). I have taught CLIL courses on tourism, cultural studies and Japanese history. I also focus on students’ thinking skills and cultural understanding.

My first degree was in history, and I am especially interested in Japanese history and cultural exchange.
