How Do You Do, Cockatoo?

This was the title of a Daily Yomiuri article this week on an Australian teacher who works in Tochigi Prefecture. Allan Moore is one of three teachers from the town of Armidale employed by the Board of Education in its sister city of Kanuma and who teach at all 22 of the city's elementary schools. Moore's experience, training and enthusiasm ensure that he is a popular visitor to the schools, despite the fact that he uses almost no Japanese in his lessons. He also makes a point of introducing aspects of his country's culture into the lessons, aided by several hand puppets of native Australian animals and birds.
