PROFILE: Sato Sensei

Teacher’s Profile

Sato Sensei


My name is Yumi Sato, teaching Japanese for the first time this year. I studied Palaeontology at the University of Alberta out of love for dinosaurs, but I now study Sanskrit and Pali which are important languages in the study of Buddhism, my current passion. Through learning these languages and teaching Japanese, I am experiencing firsthand how fascinating languages are.  I also love spending time outdoors, camping and hiking, and my future dream is to be a self-sustaining farmer. Let’s have fun learning Japanese.
