STAFF INTERVIEW: Oyama Megumi (Teacher, SILAC faculty)Oyama: This is the first time you've done an interview for the newsletter, isn't it?
Kato: Yes. Euan's busy at the moment, so I've taken over. Demo komatta naa. So, where abouts are you living at the moment?
K: Why did you decide to become a Japanese language teacher?
K: How long have you been teaching at Yamasa?
K: Really?! It's been a long time! That's about the longest isn't it?
K: I see. I didn't realise that at all. Until now, about how many people do you think you've taught?
K: Can you speak any foreign languages?
K: Has your experience studying foreign languages been useful to you while teaching Japanese?
K: Other than Korea, have you been abroad to any other places?
K: Uzbekistan! Ah yes, that's why I thought it would be a good idea to interview you for the newsletter.
K: I'm envious. So what kind of image do you have of Uzbekistan?
K: What plans do you have for 2 years from now?
K: So you'll come back to Yamasa then?
K: Off the subject, but I heard that you have a slightly strange hobby...
K: Just as well they have ants in Uzbekistan too, isn't it...
Note: Oyama-sensei is now in Tokyo undergoing the training before leaving for Uzbekistan. Recently she sent this report about life in Tokyo.
Every morning I get up at six am, exercise, go jogging, then from 9am to 5pm study language and have lectures. After that, from 7.30 until 9.30pm I study in my room, every day much the same. From tomorrow, we start language study in earnest. I hear that at this point everyone gets worn out. Every day we have five hours of language lessons, just the same as at Yamasa! 3 months of this life, then we're almost there...
