个人简介 / Introduction
My name is James Padua Bowditch. I was born in Melbourne, Australia, in August 1971. I have a Bachelor of Computing (Information Systems) from Monash University, as well as a Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA). My mother came from the Netherlands when she was 20, and I've lived and worked outside Australia, so I'm very familiar with the challenges of studying an additional language. My interests are music, drama and literature.
项目课题 / Projects
My area of work and study is English as a Second Language. I've been teaching this discipline for around 15 years. I taught English in Japan from 2003 until the tsunami in 2011. Since then I've been teaching in Australia, working with students from a variety of countries both face to face and online, preparing them for Australian higher education.
