This is one in a series of practical seminars based on the JF Standard for Japanese Education-based Marugoto: Japanese Language and Culture series.

This session will cover teaching techniques to improve student’s learning efficiency, focused on the Starter (A1) level books (Activities and Competences).

In the study of Japanese language communication through Marugoto, audio input serves a crucial role as one of the learning processes. In this seminar, while undertaking a sample lesson using Topic 8 “Shopping” Lesson 16 “I’ll take this,” we will introduce effective ways to focus on audio input in your lessons. While referencing Second Language Acquisition Theory (SLA), we will explore how these mechanisms form the context of Marugoto.

How can different strategies for instruction result in classes that grow student’s motivation and spark their awareness? Let’s think together as the presenter shares concrete examples from her own experiences with strategies and setbacks.   

We hope this session will be useful not only to users of Marugoto, but to any course based on pursuing Japanese communication “can-dos.” 

For those already using Marugoto, or who have participated in our seminars in the past, why don’t you take this opportunity to reflect on your everyday challenges? We also recommend this seminar for anyone interested in or considering using the Marugoto series. 

*The Marugoto Starter (A1) level Topic 8 “Shopping” Lesson 16 “I’ll take this” used in the seminar is available for viewing as a sample on the Marugoto Website.
