BEO Lecturer

Roger D. Smith / ロジャー・スミス
History

Before joining BEO, I had been teaching at the universities here in Japan for more than 10 years, and have a research specialization in international relations and Asian Studies. I have also taught English for Academic Purposes for many years and am quite familiar with the difficulties encountered by Japanese students when researching and writing in English.
While a student, I studied at the University of British Columbia (Canada), the University of Oxford, Tokyo University and Tokyo University of Foreign Studies and am aware of the rewards and challenges that such study-abroad programs involve. From my own experience, I can say that the foreign studies that I did in the United Kingdom were very much a worthwile endeavor.
I have also studied foreign languages abroad, including French at Universite Laval and Japanese at Sophia University and the Japan Foundation. I first became interested in studying Japanese through judo and still retain an interest in traditional Japanese culture.
