My name is Jackson de Laat. I came to Japan last November on a working holiday visa from Australia. I have been studying Japanese since middle school and recently deferred my University studies in order to come to Japan so I could further improve my Japanese language ability. It is actually my seventh time in Japan. The first time I came to Japan was in high school when I did a home-stay with a family that lived near Nishinomiya-Najio in the Hyogo Prefecture. After I finished high school, I began studying at The University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. I’m currently in the process of completing my Bachelor of Arts/Law with an extended major in Japanese. Also, in 2011 I studied abroad in Japan for a year at Shimonoseki City University in Yamaguchi Prefecture.

I started working at The Entente Fitness Club in April of this year. I hope to do my best while I’m here to improve my knowledge of Japanese and its culture while I am here in Kobe. While I am only able to work short-term as part-time staff, it is a privilege to be employed at Planners International Ltd. and an honour to be a part of the team. I will do my best to make the most of this opportunity. Thank you.
