Since 1983 Hiromi Kinjo has been teaching a variety of classes, from beginning to advanced, and conversational to business Japanese. Aside from teaching at LMU, she has been teaching at Santa Monica College, UCLA Extension, and LMU Extension. In 2011 Hiromi Kinjo was the recipient of the UCLA Extension Distinguished Instructors Award.
Prof. Kinjo believes that learning a target language is ultimately a tool to develop more effective and smooth relationships with people from different countries. Her teaching style originates from her firm belief that it is not that without instructors, students can't learn, but without students, instructors can't teach.
