Message from the presenter

In this seminar, I would like to examine together with participants, who are parents and guardians, educators and teachers, the languages in our daily lives, and what it means to bring up children as a Japanese speaker in Australia. First, I would like to share the results of our preliminary study in NSW conducted earlier this year and to highlight some points found in the study, developing discussions from here. Then, discussion rooms will be set up so that participants can freely share their experiences and thoughts on the topic.
