Kaori HATA

end2end TV Patron

“I am happy to become a patron for e2e TV. I am conducting some research into how communication styles have changed due to Covid-19 and the effect of this on pedagogical issues. end2end TV fits this well; their programme is just what I'd like to know more about and I am excited to be associated with them.”
