Continuing Learning Japanese XV

Canadian Association for Japanese Language Education (Ontario Chapter)
The Japan Foundation, Toronto

Japanese is taught at several secondary schools in Toronto and its surrounding areas. Yet, it appears that teachers do not know much about the other institutions, courses or programmes. This lack of understanding can sometimes be found even within the same institution. We believe that it is very important and necessary for teachers to know what their current students have previously studied and in what type of environment that education took place. Similarly, it is important to be informed of the available learning opportunities for students who wish to continue studying Japanese. We believe it is essential for teachers to build a strong and active network that enables them to communicate with one another. Since December 2009, the Ontario Chapter (CAJLE) and the Japan Foundation, Toronto have been co-organizing events to build a good foundation for the articulation of Japanese language education.

For the 15th event of this series, we will have an introduction on the Japanese language classes at Toronto’s A.Y. Jackson Secondary School, which offers Japanese as one of the elective subjects in their regular high school program.

We will also have a panel discussion with four students/former students who began studying Japanese in high school and continued studying Japanese on through university, and we hope to share their voices. Not only teachers but also students who are planning to continue learning Japanese are welcome. Please join us!
