JAPN 100 Teaching Assistant
Languages, Literatures and Cultures
Arts and Science
- Hello everyone! My name is Yiran and you can also call me Sherry. I was born and grew up in Tianjin, China and came to Canada in 2018. I’m fluent in Mandarin and English, and I am also working on Japanese, Korean and Spanish.
- I am going into my fourth year as a Psychology and ConEd student. Because I want to become a teacher after I graduate, I really like our program that provides me with the opportunities to work with students of different ages. I hope those experiences can help me become a good TA this year!
- As for personal interests, I like listening to J-pops, watching Japanese TV shows and dramas, as well as animates. Besides these, I also enjoy reading novels and cooking with my friends! I can’t wait to discuss Japanese cultures with you all in the fall!
- JAPN100 is one of my favorite courses taken at Queen’s. It’s different from courses from other departments in that you will have lots of chances to communicate with Aoki Sensei (our professor:), and many in-class activities to use the language. It may be challenging to learn Japanese at first, but I believe you will love it in the end. As everything is trying to go back to normal, this year may be a little different. I hope I can help you in your learnings, and I am looking forward to meeting all of you in the fall!
