We were saddened to hear of the death of Japan Association of Language Teachers (JALT) President Kevin Cleary. We do not have any details. If anyone would like to write something via ELT News, we would be more than happy to post it.
A veteran of over 20 years in Japan, Kevin was an Associate Professor at Tokyo Medical and Dental University. He also taught accounting at the Meiji University Graduate School of Accountancy and "English through Cinema" at the Sophia University Community College. He was the author of more than a dozen works, mainly on the area of adapting scientific articles for language learners.
Kevin first got involved in the running of JALT when he became treasurer of the Tokyo chapter in 2003. He held a variety of other positions within the organization and was selected as president in 2010. He lived with his family in the coastal town of Kamakura, near Tokyo.
