Nena Hosonaka-Nikolic

Self Introduction

I am from Serbia but now I consider the world my home after visiting and living in a number of countries. I presently teach university undergraduate and graduate courses, high school and I also run my own school. Formerly, on the subject of young learners, I had a radio program, a column in the Yomiuri Newspaper, and was once even a TV personality. I also speak Japanese and Serbian, have two MAs (on teaching English and Japanese), and a PhD (on teaching culture to young learners). I love Disney, volleyball and karate.

Message to Students

The beauty of teaching and learning is that every day is exciting because you never know what is going to happen that day. In my classes I welcome people, grasshoppers, (nice) witches, fairytale creatures, animals, and aliens from space, among others, simply because I believe they all help us expand our concepts about the world. I can’t wait to meet you all!!!
