New Blog: Resident Alien

I’m an EFL teacher/parent/occasional translator (Japanese to English) whose children were raised and partly educated in Japan.  Having lived, studied, and worked in Japan for 17 years, I still enjoy reading and speaking Japanese, and my children strongly identify with Japan. I blog a lot about life in Japan, Japanese customs, the Nihongo Noryoku Shiken (I passed level 1 over 20 years ago), Japanese people I have known, stereotypes about the Japanese (and other Asians) and teaching in Japan.
