In 2014, The Japan Foundation, Toronto (JFT) will hold four workshops which aim to provide a place for teachers to learn together about teaching Japanese language. The second workshop in this series will be a workshop on the Marugoto textbook based on the Japan Foundation Standard for Japanese Language Education (JF Standard). Please join us!


Theme:Grasping Marugoto

What kind of teaching material is Marugoto: Japanese Language and Culture, the Japanese textbook based on the JF Standard? In this workshop using teaching materials analysis methods we will aim to grasp the special features of Marugoto. As well as introducing the use of Marugoto in the JFT’s Japanese language classes, we will experience a class from the learner’s perspective to think on how we can effectively use the features of Marugoto when planning a class.
