Michael Cooper is a language consultant for Japanese/English who has been studying and translating the language for more than 10 years. He lived and worked in Tokyo for a considerable amount of time and created a website called "The Study Kin" to help other language learners excel in their studies and achieve opportunities in the world. He also creates YouTube videos documenting his journey in learning Japanese and working with Japanese people online also known as "Myva". "The Study Kin" is a play on words that means "the study family" in English and "the study gold" in Japanese, and he hopes to help people become part of his study family and find success in learning English/Japanese. The goal of The Study Kin is a passionate mission to examine the origin of all Japanese and English expressions and to become more familiar with both cultures.
