Japanese Learning for Communication -A Marugoto Approach-

Japanese Learning for Communication -A Marugoto Approach- 

How to use 「Let’s discover!」to spark student’s awareness


※This lab will be conducted in Japanese. 本ラボは日本語で行われます。

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

Using the Activity book from Marugoto Elementary 2 as an example, we will focus on the 「Let’s discover!」section. Focusing on group discussions amongst participating teachers, we will share practical ideas for how to effectively implement this section and where to place it within the chapter as a whole.
While relaxing and having fun conversation, let’s find innovations you’ll want to try the very next day!

*We plan on continuing our Marugoto event series in 2022. Stay tuned!


Teachers (including private tutors) who are currently using Marugoto, or have used Marugoto before.

*Previous experience with our Marugoto Seminar Series is preferred, but not required.

Note: We will be referencing Marugoto Elementary 2 Activity Book, Lesson 15 for the seminar. If you do not own the relevant textbook, you may access a sample on the Marugoto Website.
