This seminar will enable teachers to develop language skills, gain confidence using Japanese, and to develop language teaching strategies and skills which they can apply in their own classrooms. Specific focuses include intercultural language learning (ILL) and ICT-based learning. Participants will be immersed in a Japanese language environment suited to their level, and will have ample opportunity for networking.
Language consultants from JF Sydney will conduct the 4 day seminar, together with other invited lecturers. We invite all teachers who teach any year levels from F-6 (New Zealand: 1-8) to submit an application. Applicants must be able to understand basic Japanese and are able to read and write hiragana and katakana (equivalent to at least level N5 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test).
