I’m Davey Leslie, your instructor. I was born in Washington D.C., but grew up in California. I have a Bachelor’s degree in teaching English from Humboldt State University in California. I have lived in Kochi since 1992. This is the longest I have lived in any one city in my life. When you ask me, “Where is your hometown?”, I have to answer, “Kochi, of course!”
I am a part-time lecturer at both Koch University, and Kochi University of Technology. I was one of the first web developers in this area of Japan, and still maintain several websites, including Life in Kochi. My wife, Mika, and I also run a small private English school in Asakura.
