Kanda University of International Studies


I have been teaching Thai language in the Department of Asian Languages at Kanda University of International Studies, Chiba, for the past 20 years. My interests are in the field of Applied Linguistics and culture. I spend most of my time at the university encouraging students to deepen their interest in the language and country. At Kanda University we have a high level of cultural diversity. Even during the pandemic, we tried to connect students to the world outside of the university. Though students were unable to travel to Thailand on a real study tour, by creating the online study tour for students, we could help motivate them to learn. I hope that you will find that my presentation on the topic “Study tour online” will be of use.
