Workshop for Japanese Language Teachers

The Japan Foundation, Toronto (JFT) will hold three workshops this year which aim to provide a place for teachers to learn together about teaching Japanese language. The first workshop, suitable for anyone who is interested in teaching Japanese, will deal with teaching kanji. Please join us!
Please scroll to the bottom for registration.

Theme:Kanji Instruction

When you hear “kanji instruction” does it excite you? Make you depressed? Unlike grammar or conversation, do you find yourself tending to put off thinking about kanji instruction? Teach the meaning, reading, stroke order, “and the rest you can do yourself” Is that really how it’s supposed to go? Have you ever wondered if there’s not another way? In this workshop we will share useful information about kanji instruction, and think about what support we can give students.
In order to allow ample time for teachers to discuss their experiences and issues with kanji instruction, we have made this a four-hour workshop. We hope to see all of you who wish to think more about what can be done with kanji instruction at the workshop.
