Intensive Seminar for Teachers

What is the Intensive Seminar for Teachers?

The seminar, held at The Japan Foundation, Sydney enables teachers to develop language skills, gain confidence using Japanese, and to develop language teaching strategies and skills which they can apply in their own classrooms. Specific focuses include intercultural language learning (ILL) and ICT-based learning. Participants will be immersed in a Japanese language environment suited to their level and will have ample opportunity for networking.

This 3.5 day seminar will be conducted by Language Consultants from JPF Sydney.
