I began learning Japanese informally as a 17-year-old during a high school exchange year in Mie and then later studied the language and how to teach it at university in Australia and Japan. I have been a teacher in primary and secondary schools in Australia for nine years and taught Japanese at the University of Queensland, Australia, for 25 years. I am interested in long term motivation for learning Japanese, informal and independent learning and language edutainment. I am currently researching the development of listening behaviour in oral narratives in classroom learners and am an Honorary Lecturer in the School of Languages and Cultures at the University of Queensland.
