Learn and Teach Primary Japanese!


From September 2014 it will be compulsory for all maintained primary schools in England to teach at least one foreign language from Key Stage 2. In response to this, the Japan Foundation London is planning a series of workshops and events to help prepare primary teachers who would like to teach Japanese.

In this free, two day course, primary school teachers with little or no prior knowledge of Japanese will have the opportunity not only to learn the basics of Japanese language and culture, but also how to impart their new knowledge on to their pupils. The course will follow the Japan Foundation Japanese Scheme of Work for Primary Schools, which is packed full of lesson plans, resources and exciting and fun ideas for teaching primary-level Japanese. Participants will additionally have access to exclusive draft versions of primary resources that are currently in development at the Japan Foundation. We will also give advice on funding, resources and other assistance available to get Japanese classes up and running at your school.

Date: 27 May 2014 – 28 May 2014 from 10.30am
Venue: The Japan Foundation, London
