Name: Danielle Fischer
Background: I grew up near New York City but I moved to Florida when I was 18. I prefer the warmer weather and beaches in Florida! I was an exchange student in Japan for one year in Hirakata-city when I was younger. I have also lived in Gifu, Kobe and Chiba before I came to OIT. I've lived in Japan for a total of about 7 years. I've also taught English in California, the Czech Republic and Poland.
Hobbies: Traveling around Japan on a train, exploring new places on my bicycle, watching movies and documentaries, trying new food and restaurants, reading manga in Japanese, and traveling around Asia.
Secret to learning English: Set goals that you enjoy. What do you need English for? And more importantly, what do you WANT to study English for?
Message for OIT students: Don't be shy! Try your best and let's enjoy learning together. Please teach me about OIT and Osaka because I'm new here, and if you know of any delicious restaurants, please let me know. I look forward to meeting you soon!
