Ms. Okada is from Tokyo, Japan. She worked for a Japanese company which provides web-based courses for high school students to help prepare them for university entrance examinations. Having coached those high school students, she has become interested in foreign language acquisition and effective pedagogical methods. Now, as she is working at WKU teaching Japanese, she is also pursuing her M.A. in Education at WKU. Currently, she is earning her Master’s thesis about foreign language anxiety experienced by students and how to alleviate it. When she is not working, she likes to plan where to explore for next vacation.
