Sachiko Takahashi

Sachiko Takahashi belongs to the Nursing Department of the Faculty of Health and Welfare Science of Okayama Prefectural University. She is also a member of the Language Education Division and teaches English to students of all departments.

She believes nursing students are motivated to learn English if they are provided with content knowledge in both their first and second language.
