When we talk about “Japanese language learners,” it is important to consider that living environment, linguistic surroundings, reasons for studying Japanese, and other factors all play a role in shaping each individual’s learning experience.

In this seminar held in the Waterloo region by the Japan Foundation, Toronto, we will discuss how to create a Japanese language education plan that is tailored to learners’ specific backgrounds and needs.

This event is open to those engaged in Japanese-language education and those interested in Japanese-language education. All are welcome. We look forward to seeing you there.
