My name is Russell Field and I am 57 years old. I have just returned to live in the UK after working for over 20 years in Japan where I taught English in companies and universities. This work also involved regular proof reading and editing of student work and technical papers, especially in the areas of steel and pharmaceuticals.
I passed level 1 of the Japanese Proficiency exam in 2007.
I have MA's in Applied Linguistics and Japanese Studies, and a BA in English Literature and Philosophy.
I have also worked in Germany and Italy, where I gained a working knowledge of both languages.
