Japanese Learning for Communication -A Marugoto Approach-

Japanese Learning for Communication -A Marugoto Approach- (Introductory ~ Elementary)

Overview of A1 and A2 levels via Marugoto’s Can-do Map

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

One in a series of seminars introducing the Marugoto: Japanese Language and Culture textbooks developed by The Japan Foundation.

Marugoto runs from starter (A1) through intermediate (B1), with 6 levels in total. Come and get a taste of how this series develops the practical Japanese communication skills of students while following the “Can-do Map.”

In this seminar, we will begin by focusing on one topic shared throughout the Marugoto series and look at how the “Can-do” Communication Goals level up accordingly, and then move to looking across the series as a whole to understand the learning features and philosophy. After that, we will shift the focus to the Starter and Elementary levels, explaining their learning processes and class tips in detail.

Come and see how Marugoto helps encourage Japanese language communication in students by sparking students’ awareness and focusing on audio input.
