Jane came to us from teaching in Christchurch after immigrating to New Zealand from Taiwan as a teenager. Jane is passionate about learning languages and studied Japanese throughout high school and university. In her final year of university, she had the privilege of going on an exchange for one year in Kyoto. This was both a wonderful and challenging experience forcing her outside of her comfort zone and immersing herself in another culture and country. She found it hugely rewarding and the best way to learn about Japanese culture and their way of life while also giving her the opportunity to refine her Japanese language skills.
