Integrated Bachelor’s Degree in International Studies and Modern Languages (Japanese)
I started studying Japanese by chance at Université Laval in 2006. At the time I barely knew anything about Japan. So it’s really through studying the language that I became fascinated by Japan and Japanese culture. As part of my bachelor’s degree in international studies and modern languages, I had the chance to attend Kansai Gaidai University in Osaka on an exchange. More recently, through the JET Program, I spent three years working as a teaching assistant in an English as a Second Language (ESL) Program in Ehime Prefecture. I’ve also done some Japanese‑to‑French translation and published a few pieces on the Japanese language. I’m currently completing a PhD on Japanese translations of Québec movies and will be moving back to Japan for my research, to Tokyo this time. I can honestly say that studying Japanese at Université Laval changed my life.
