  • Beschreibung

    My name is Masahiko Kawaraguchi. I live with my wife and our dog in Fukuoka City, Japan. I had been a high school English teacher for 42 years until I finally retired this August.

    Considering my age, I don't have much future, but now I have a lot of time and energy to use for other people and I hope I can learn something more about life and enjoy the process.

    I would like to refresh my mind and body before I get too old. In order to do so, I wish to do different things than what I had been doing these 42 years as a teacher in Japan:
    1. I live in a big city; therefore, I would like to stay in nature or a smaller town.
    2. I taught in classroom; therefore, I would like to work outdoors or in the real world.
    3. I have lived in Japan, where most of the people around me are Japanese; therefore, I would like to experience a life in foreign countries.
    4. I had been teaching only reading and writing English. As a result, I am not confident in conversational English; thereforeI would like to brush up my English and become more fluent in a real life situation.

    I can communicate in English. Japanese is my native language. I can teach both of the languages; I am a certified high school English teacher and, as for Japanese, I taught the language at a Vietnamese university for a semester.

    Though I am just an ordinary Japanese male and am not particularly well built, I am quite healthy. Compared to other men of my age, I am quite fit. I also have a cheerful and adaptable personality, without which you cannot get along well with Japanese high school students. Though I will not be able to lecture on Japanese traditional culture professionally nor demonstrate a special dance, I am sure you can see what an average modern Japanese person is like through me. Last but not least, I can show you JAPANESE DILIGENCE. I think I have proved this through trying volunteer programs in the UK, France, Bulgaria, Vietnam, and Laos so far.

    I am thinking of traveling through the UK next spring.
