Takako Matsui



Hi! I am originally from Japan. But, it does not mean that my nickname 'Tako' came from octopus (that's how we call in Japanese) or any other kind. Although it could still mean some famous Mexican food for many of you, I really like my nickname.

Anyway... Talking more about myself, I have been in the U.S for nine years. It has been a long time...but I felt like it went so fast. First, I finished my B.S in Antholopology and Fine Art, and (somehow!) I worked for an automotive company as a translator for a couple years. That was why I became interested in 'languages' and wanted to study this particular field at an academic level. I am enjoying being a Linguistic student.
