5th National Symposium on Japanese Language Education (NSJLE)


The Monash Japanese Language Education Centre together with The Japan Foundation, Sydney makes the following announcement.

Despite our hope that the NSJLE 2020 which was postponed until October 2021 would proceed. Unfortunately due to the uncertainty created by the impact of COVID-19 and our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our colleagues, the National Symposium on Japanese Language Education 2021 has been postponed to 2022. The theme, Be Inspired, Be Inspiring and our keynote speakers remain the same.

We apologise for any inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you to the NSJLE in 2022.

All relevant dates have been updated on this website. The Call for papers remains open and we welcome all submissions.

The National Symposium on Japanese Language Education (NSJLE) is a biennial two-day conference for Japanese language educators at all levels and sectors from all Australian states and territories. It is organised by The Japan Foundation, Sydney, and the Melbourne Centre for Japanese Language Education.

NSJLE aims to provide a platform for teachers and stakeholders to discuss issues of national interest and network with their peers from around the country to encourage a stronger national network of Japanese language educators.

This symposium is a direct response to a recommendation in the 2010 report, The Current State of Japanese Language in Australian Schools and to the need for Japanese language educators to engage with important developments in language education policy under way at national and state levels, including the development of the Australian Curriculum – Languages.

NSJLE covers a wide range of topics related to Japanese language education, including sharing best practice, advances in classroom ICT, articulation, the Australian Curriculum and leadership and advocacy.
