Speaker: David Barker and Mutsumi Kawasaki

In this bilingual presentation, David Barker will explain in Japanese how he went about the task of learning the language, and what he discovered about language learning on the journey. Mutsumi Kawasaki will explain in English how she overcame her initial negative feelings about the language and how she managed to reach a high level of proficiency without the experience of studying abroad. The presenters hope that the session will be of interest to learners and teachers of both languages.
