James Doherty

Personal Profile

I was born in Malaysia and educated in England. Following university I embarked on a career in journalism working for newspapers and radio. My life as a reporter took me all over the world and opened my eyes to some extraordinary countries and cultures. I have been fortunate enough to live and work in some very interesting countries including Norway, China and Malaysia. In 2002 I moved to the Netherlands and since that time I have worked as an English lecturer at the Language Centre on a wide range of student and external courses. I was instrumental in establishing and developing English language programmes with the University of Osaka both in Groningen and Japan. For me teaching is all about enthusiasm, inspiration and motivation blended with a generous helping of creativity.
