Hi! I'm Joy and I'm originally from the beautiful island of Barbados.I first came to Japan in 2010 where I was a Fukuoka JET for two years. I moved to London and graduated with my Masters degree in English Linguistics in 2014 and returned to Japan to teach in Nagoya. I'm currently teaching at Sojo University and enjoying life in Kumamoto! My current research focus is on Japanese learners of English, the various difficulties they encounter when studying the language and possible ways for them to overcome them. I really enjoy baking, traveling and punny jokes. Nice to meet you!
