This presentation will outline how a mini-immersion program has been conducted for the past 9 years with a special emphasis on the first 6 years, comparing these students’ achievements with those of other students in once-a-week and twice-a-week programs.
The JALT international conference, held this year in October, marks the end of the elected term for current Nara Chapter Officers and an opportunity for chapter members to become more involved in the running of your chapter.
Have you ever wondered about opening your own school? 4 owners describe their experiences over the last decade establishing 7 very different English schools.
With the ever increasing dominance of English as the primary global language world-wide, many diverse perspectives about the status of English have become established.
Are you new to kids teaching, needing some inspiration for an existing program or looking to start? Four veterans of teaching English to kids under 10 demonstrate a variety of invaluable activities and techniques that are easy to implement & pedagogically sound. Watch, learn, use it on Monday!
In the act of teaching, we have little time to reflect on the successes or puzzles that occur within our classes and can lose valuable opportunities for gaining insights into our pedagogic practice. There is a need, therefore, for practical ways to help us think back upon our experiences more deeply and to discover what is actually happening in our classrooms.

In ten years of work at three different universities in two countries, I have rarely escaped being tagged "The Technology Teacher" or "The Tech Guy". It's the kind of nickname that immediately establishes in people's minds that I hold a particular love of technology, and that I only wish to promote its use at every opportunity.
