Biography

Shinsuke Tsuchiya received his Ph.D. in Japanese Language Pedagogy from The Ohio State University and an MA in Second Language Acquisition from Brigham Young University. His interests are in language teacher training and second language socialization. His dissertation explores how language teachers and students perceive “native” and “nonnative” speakers of the target language (i.e. Japanese and Chinese), and how their perceptions are related to their background characteristics, such as their gender, first language, language level in the target language, language program, ethnicity, and age. He also documented the unique language socialization process of “divergent” language teachers, or those who do not fit in the stereotypical types of “native” and “nonnative” speakers of the target language, such as dialect speakers, heritage speakers, and non-L1 English nonnative speakers of Japanese. His research interests also include L2 Japanese narratives and measuring L2 Japanese proficiencies. He is a certified ACTFL OPI tester.
