All ok.

I certify the above is true.

Mark Krischak




Why did you come to Japan?

I lived and worked in Japan for four years, and have been married to my present Japanese wife

Sayoko for twenty nine years. We have lived in both Japan and the USA, but are now back in

Japan to live and work.

What do you like best about Japan?

Food, people, and culture.

What do you plan to do during your stay here?

Work and learn about the Japanese culture and language.

What interests you most in Japanese culture?

The fact that the Japanese people keep their history and culture *alive*.

How long are you planning to stay in Japan?

A very long time.

Do you speak Japanese?

A little, and want to learn more.


Please give a brief account of your teaching experience.

I have worked with all ages in many different types of schools and

settings. I am very easy going, and would be happy to teach the English language to any age group. I

enjoy teaching, and also like to see the students progress in all areas of their English language

learning experience.

Please briefly describe the factors which you feel are of importance in learning a language. Also, make mention of the language teaching methodology which you feel most comfortable using.
You may also wish to briefly touch on your philosophy of teaching. You may use the back of this sheet if necessary.

I believe that learning can be fun and interesting at the same time. It is very easy for me to see

what areas different students need work in, (for example: listening, comprehension, pronunciation, understanding, etc.) and if
given some freedom, I can teach any student to speak, listen, and communicate effectively, and within a short time. I also believe
that learning should not be forced, and that it should be natural.

Thank you

and I look forward to meeting you soon.

Mark Krischak
