An avid language learner himself, Chris studied Japanese at university. He became fascinated with the language learning process and ways of learning more effectively, and has since applied such methods to become fluent enough that he has worked as a translator and interpreter.
Chris has also taught English for more than 10 years. This has given him first-hand experience helping English learners to overcome the particular struggles and challenges that they encounter on the road to fluency. He brings this insight to his work at Eigo Love.
Nao (TOEIC expert)
Nao is a member of our Eigo Love team. She is responsible for quality control of the English content in the TOEIC Part 5 study material, as well as for creating the English content of the TOEIC Part 6 study material. At the age of 14, Nao decided to enter an American school and was immersed to real-life, practical English, as opposed to introductory English lessons taught at schools in Japan, when her parents hired an English teacher who spoke no Japanese.
Nao mastered the American English pronunciation as well as reading & writing in English, and through her college years and career in U.S., she became so fluent in English that she was often mistaken as a US-born native English speaker. In U.S. and Eastern Europe, with English as her first language, Nao has built a career as a mid-senior director in various industries such as PC help desk, publishing, mobile application development, speech recognition and crowdsourcing. Nao has proven track records in creating business results with her practical application of the English language in a wide variety of business fields ranging from project management, staff training, customer service to sales, marketing, partnership negotiations, mergers & acquisitions, business development and management. She brings this insight and practical knowledge of English to Eigo Love. She’s also fluent in Russian.

Nichole hopes everyone who uses the resources available at Eigo Love will grow in their English ability as well as their overall confidence in using the English language.
I’m in charge of editing content for Eigo Love. I’ve been fascinated with learning English since I was in junior high school. I majored in English at university in Tokyo, with a focus on American literature, and later also completed a master’s degree in the same field. Researching and writing in English throughout my time at undergraduate and graduate school inspired me to look for and develop better ways to learn English for myself.
Since finishing my master’s degree, I have worked in several multicultural workplaces where English is the main way of communicating with my colleagues. Throughout my career, I have worked on projects to develop content and tools both for foreigners living in Japan and for Japanese people needing help in learning and using English. Most recently, I’ve been working as a proofreader of texts about English written for a Japanese audience, a test-user of tools to help non-English native speaking users write in English, and a project manager for the development of such tools. I occasionally do English to Japanese and Japanese to English translation as well. As an active learner and user of English myself, I’m excited to join this project.
Upon graduating from university, where I studied medieval philosophy and Latin, I started to learn English casually. It was not long before I found that English was not only incredibly handy but also very deep and layered. This inspired me to study the language more seriously and ever since then not a day has passed without my studying it. English still never ceases to amaze me.
Currently, I am working as an English teacher at several schools, with a particular focus on helping students to prepare for the TOEIC and other English proficiency tests. I myself have EIKEN Grade 1 and a TOEIC score of 960. I am also a member of the Fukuoka Interpreters’ Association. It seems my love for English has led me to be what I am today and I continue to find it as unique and challenging as it is enjoyable and rewarding.
