The Japan Foundation, Toronto will hold three workshops this year which aim to provide a place for teachers to learn together about teaching the Japanese language. As detailed below, the second workshop in this series will be a session hosted by Hiromi Kijima, the chief developer of the textbook Marugoto: Japanese Language and Culture.

After the workshop, there will be a mixer that we hope many people will be able to attend.

Registration Deadline: Sunday November 22, 2015. (Please understand catering cannot be guaranteed for applications received after this deadline)

Theme: By the author! The whole of Marugoto: Japanese Language and Culture!

Marugoto: Japanese Language and Culture, a textbook based on the JF Standard for Japanese Language Education, is a fun resource for anyone wanting to learn about the Japanese language and culture and striving to become able to communicate in Japanese. Marugoto places importance on students accomplishing tasks given with “Can-do” statements, contextualized learning through topics and situations, intercultural understanding, collaborative learning, learner autonomy, and the language acquisition process, among others. These are all connected to the concept of “Japanese for mutual understanding” which was key to the development of the book.

Weaving in the above concepts, in this workshop, the foundations, characteristics, and use of Marugoto will be explained. We believe that you will discover a different world of Japanese language education from that of textbooks that centre on sentence patterns. We look forward to everyone’s questions and opinions.

Workshop: 2:30pm – 5:50pm

Mixer: 6:00pm – 8:00pm (A light meal will be served)

Instructor: Hiromi Kijima (The Japan Foundation Japanese-Language Institute, Urawa)

Instructor’s Introduction: Ms. Kijima is a full-time lecturer at the Japan Foundation Japanese-Language Institute, Urawa. Beyond Japan, she has also supported Japanese language education as the Chief Advisor at the Japan Foundation London’s Japanese Language Centre, and developed “CHIKARA” – a Japanese language resource for secondary education. She returned to Japan, and since 2010 has been working as the team leader in the development of the starter to pre-intermediate JF Standard based textbooks, Marugoto: Japanese Language and Culture.
