About me プロフィール

Dale K. Andrews

I teach in the Department of Language & Culture, Faculty of Liberal Arts at Tohoku Gakuin University, which is located in the city of Sendai, Japan. I arrived at Tohoku Gakuin University in April 2011.

From an early age, I had an interest in foreign languages and cultures. In my childhood, I spent a great deal of time reading National Geographic, always fascinated with how people lived around the world. In junior high school I began studying Spanish and then added two years of German in high school. I was in a hurry to see the world, so upon graduation in 1986 I joined the U.S. Air Force. This gave me the opportunity to be stationed in Okinawa (my first chance to travel abroad), where I lived four years. With that experience in hand,  I  went to study anthropology at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. After graduation, I made my way back to Japan in 1996, but this time as a student. Since that time, I have been studying, working, and experiencing Japan.
