Christopher Cladis

Background: I am originally from Texas in the USA, but I moved to New York City when I was 17, went to university in the area, and lived there for several years. After that, I lived in Japan for 5 years, teaching in Miyagi Prefecture and Yokohama. I then moved to Istanbul, Turkey and taught at a university there for 2 years. Turkey has been a wonderful experience but I am very excited to make my return to Japan and to experience another part of the country.
Hobbies: Travelling and taking photographs, playing guitar, reading novels, studying languages (mostly Japanese), watching movies
The secret to improving your English: Have fun with the language and then use it to not only learn about other cultures but teach others about your own.
Message for OIT students: Hello students of OIT! I look forward to meeting you all and getting to know you. Please feel free to visit me for help or just to have a friendly chat. I'm so excited to make the return to Japan and get to know Osaka. I hope you can give me advice and teach me all about it!






Jeremy Eades

Background: I'm from Indianapolis in the United States, but I have been living in Japan since 2004. I've spent most of my time living in Kanagawa and Chiba, so living in Osaka is a new change for me.
Hobbies: I enjoy being outside, riding my bicycle, camping and snowboarding. I also like being inside, where I play video games and cook.
Secret to learning English: Learn about your hobby in English! It's already something you enjoy, and you can learn useful vocabulary and make new friends.
Message:Hello, everyone! I really look forward to talking with you. Please tell me your favorite restaurants in Osaka because I love trying new places.

The secret to improving your English: Chatting
Message for OIT students: Hi, I am usually at the front desk in the SALC. I love to meet and chat with OIT students. I could not speak any English at all before. If you keep practicing, you will be good at English!
