For the one-day workshop, we are pleased to welcome Ms. Stacia Johnson as our keynote presenter, who will discuss British Columbia's new curriculum. Following this, another session will be led by the Japan Foundation's newly dispatched Japanese Language Specialist, Mr. Yoshifumi Murakami.
The remaining three days are an "overnight camp" workshop, focusing on brushing up participants' Japanese skills using the Japan Foundation's textbook, Marugoto. Participants will get to try each level from A1 to B1, and through experiencing the different levels of Marugoto as "students" they will also learn about teaching using Marugoto. There will also be opportunities outside of the brush-up sessions to discuss language education in the 21st century.
