September 8, 2022

Hello! My name is Jessica and I am the new ALT (Assistant Language Teacher) here at Seiritsu Gakuen. I am from Liverpool which is located in the North-West of England. My city is especially famous for the seaside, football and The Beatles.

I majored in Management Studies at the University of Leicester. In the city of Leicester, there are many delicious restaurants and so you will never run out of options on what to eat. I also studied abroad in South Korea for a year at Sungkyunkwan University. I lived in Seoul which has an abundance of things to do. I highly recommend visiting a meerkat cafe or to try on their traditional clothing (Hanbok). Moreover, I had an amazing opportunity to study at Nara Women's University for a month. I can speak English, Cantonese and basic Mandarin and Korean. I am really excited to be learning the Japanese language and culture.

I look forward to being part of this wonderful family here at Seiritsu.
