LFP Ep11 Interview with Michael MacKinven
6 days ago
In this episode, we interview Michael MacKinven, author of Kanji Pro: The easy way to remember kanji. During the interview we hear how Michael’s first interest in language learning was ignited by another language learner – a friend who was learning Italian. He also mentions some of the things which keep language teachers going, and he tells us of his classic exemplification of the “spiky profile” learner – high level skills in one area, and lower level skills in another area. This eventually led him to create KanjiPro. Michael uses his language and cross-cultural skills in his everyday business life, even when not directly interacting with Japanese speakers.
