Japanese language teachers’ seminar: Teaching contextualisation and personalisation of elementary grammar within GCSE Japanese

4431

Preparation for the Japanese GCSE tends to focus on studying grammar, meaning that students run the risk of only ever using the grammar they have learned to make example sentences. But teachers want to see their students continue their Japanese studies even after they have completed their GCSE, and develop their language skills to be able to express themselves in everyday life. In this seminar, Prof. Yoshikazu Kawaguchi of Waseda University will first introduce the concepts of “contextualisation” and “personalisation.” This will be followed by a workshop in which participants can explore ways in which teachers can link together grammar study with self-expression.

This seminar is part of the Association of Japanese Language Teachers in Europe e.V.’s project, co-organised by the Japan Foundation London, to investigate articulation problems and possible measures within Japanese language education, using the UK as a model.
