Hello, my name is Dara.
I’m a new teacher here at NOVA Shizuoka.
I also teach in Shimizu on Mondays and Tuesdays.I came from Ireland but I’ve all over the world! Japan is country number 5!
I was born in London, England but grew up Limerick, Ireland because my parents are Irish.
Limerick is famous for it’s history, city castle, rugby and music. It’s also the home of the two youngest billionaires in the world.
If you like music the most famous band from Limerick are the Cranberries! Give them a listen!
In Ireland I learned to speak English and Irish(Gaeilge) and in France I learned to speak French(Francaise)!
I moved to Paris, France when I was 24 and lived there for 3years!
I moved to France because I love food and rugby! That’s exactly why I have moved to Japan. I moved to Japan just one week before the start of the rugby World Cup and have very much enjoyed the atmosphere!
I have been trying to find a rugby team to play with you in Shizuoka so if you know any please let me know!
I also love hiking and that’s why I chose to live in Shizuoka as it’s really close to Mount Fuji.
If you want to stop and talk about rugby, hiking, traveling or have any Japanese food recommendations please let me know!So glad to have met so many of you so far and I’m always looking forward to meeting new students so don’t be shy!
I also love movies, music and books. My favorite types of movies and books are thrillers but I’m open to all types.
I also love singing, if you know any musician who would like an English speaking vocalist, let me know!
I wish you all the best with your studies of English! My tips are always bring a notebook with you, listen to English speaking.I know as a language student myself, as I’m currently studying Japanese! Please easy go on me!!
