My name is Naomi and I am from Germany.
I am half German and half Japanese and I grew up bilingual in Munich, Sapporo's sister city. During my German school-holidays, I spent most of my time in Japan to visit Japanese relatives in Sapporo or go sightseeing. Therefore, I also got in touch with the Japanese culture early on in life. Now, I live in Japan to gain work experience and to get to know more about the everyday life.
Regarding my work experience, I have been working as a freelancer since July 2014. I am working for the Atlas school as a language teacher for German and English, on the other hand, and I also give private German, Japanese and English language lessons on my own.
I also offer translations and lectures on the German and Japanese culture.
