“Ideas worth spreading” shouldn’t be limited by the belief that we must
all speak complicated, high-level English. Simple English can sometimes
be the most powerful. Ms. Yukiko Nakayama will show you how confident,
simple English opens up many more opportunities of communication than
uncertain, advanced English.

including an honorable mention award from the Ministry of Education,

and translation of technical manuscripts as well as patents. She also
teaches technical English at various companies, universities, and
technical colleges, and has written textbooks on the subject.​
