Japanese Learning for Communication -A Marugoto Approach-

Japanese Learning for Communication -A Marugoto Approach- (Intermediate 1)

Lessons Extending Students’ Proficiency

※This seminar will be conducted in Japanese. 本セミナーは日本語で行われます。

This seminar is part of a seminar series introducing the Marugoto: Japanese Language and Culture textbooks developed by The Japan Foundation.

Following on from Starter, Elementary 1, and Elementary 2, this seminar will focus on the Intermediate 1 (B1) level coursebook. Although the layout and structure changes at the Intermediate level, the underlying process of learning to communicate in Japanese based on audio input still applies here.

In this seminar, we will use Topic 7 (“Take on the challenge of martial arts!”) to examine the lesson flow. We will also explain in detail the learning steps including communication strategies involved in two tasks (listening to a long conversation, and oral output at the paragraph level) characteristic of this level.

Let’s explore how we can use the Intermediate 1 coursebook to develop a lesson that raises students’ proficiency in dealing with real Japanese through building up variations and extending the topic.

*For 2021, we are also planning to hold another Marugoto seminar in October.

Target All Japanese language educators
(including teaching assistants, private tutors, teacher trainers, etc.)
*Previous experience using Marugoto is not required.
*Particularly recommended for teachers in adult education.
Reference materials The following coursebook will be referred to in this seminar. We recommend acquiring or borrowing a copy to refer to.
