Kyoto University of Foreign Studies


Hello. My name is Jodie Campbell. I'm from Toronto, Canada, but I live in Kyoto,Japan. I've been teaching ESL/EFL for about 21 years (1 year in Seoul, South Korea, & 20 years in Japan). I'm currently an EFL lecturer at Kyoto University of Foreign Studies in Kyoto, Japan. My areas of interest in ESL/EFL are: Extensive Reading (ER), Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL), Vocabulary Acquisition, Motivational Strategies in the Second Language (L2) Classroom, and most recently, Gamification in the L2 Language Classroom, mainly via Kahoot. In my free time, I like to watch hockey, play golf, and play the drums. Thank you. Jodie Campbell
