Hello my name is Ross. I am an ELI teacher at Kanda University of International Studies. I first started teaching in Japan in private institutions after which I taught aboard a cruise ship for 3 months. After Japan I taught in South Korea for a year before taking on a role of TESOL certification course instructor. I then returned to Scotland my home country and completed my masters degree in TESOL in 2016. After my masters degree I briefly taught in public schools in rural Thailand before returning to Japan to begin teaching at Kanda University where I currently work.
My research interests include; vocabulary/lexis, action research, language testing, learner autonomy, global englishes, intercultural communication, and materials development.
I think teaching is a very noble pursuit and teachers should collaborate and share ideas as much as possible.
thank you
