This program is a six weeks program designed to provide an opportunity to improve the teaching methodology. This program will be conducted twice in FY 2023. There will be NO lessons for improving Japanese-language skill.
For FY 2023, we will provide two themes as follows: (1) "Teaching Japanese Characters" and (2) "Assessment of Language Learning". All programs will consist of pre-study sessions for all participants, as well as live sessions, individual consultations, and postsession assignments. In the pre-study, participants study individually using newly prepared materials from the Japan Foundation Japanese-Language Institute, Urawa, as well as working on assignments. In the live session, all participants are connected online with the Japan Foundation Japanese-Language Institute, Urawa enabling them to discuss their prior studies, which allows them to confirm and deepen their understanding of the content. In addition, we are planning to start an online self-study course during FY 2023. Further details will be announced on the website at a later date.
