Hi, I’m a gaijin and my tale has just begun.

My name is ANNA. I speak, read and write English, Russian and Japanese. For almost eight years I have been telling other people’s stories through INTERPRETATION and TRANSLATION. Now I would like to tell my own tale with my BLOG.

Made in England, perfected in Russia, I relocated to Japan to write my second Doctorate thesis. My scientific interests include but are not limited to such fields as Comparative Linguistics, Cognitive Linguistics and International Culture and Communication.

This blog is about:

  • Translation and interpretation
  • Articles and thesis writing
  • Japan, cultural shocks and pleasures it has given me
  • Different paperwork and foreigner daily life in Japan
  • Job hunting in Japan
