Teachers’ Beliefs on Culture

Date and Time: 
Sunday, 17 July 2016 - 1:30pm - 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Nicholas Bradley

A great deal of literature has been produced highlighting the importance of culture as a part of language teaching. As a result of this growing awareness, many textbooks, teacher resources and guides have been produced to assist teachers, like me, who want to raise students’ awareness of culture but are a little unsure about how to do it.

Discussions about language education in Japan can be very inward looking, through focusing on challenges which may seem unique to the country. However, much can be gained by finding out more about issues in other language learning environments. Today, we have the opportunity to discover the situation in three locations, which are themselves contrasting: Costa Rica, Indonesia and Pakistan.

Date and Time: 
Saturday, 16 January 2016 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Speaker: 
Régis Olivero
Speaker: 
Staci-Anne Ali

Each language is uniquely structured. However, romance languages share a deeper connection. They share a historical background as well as some linguistic similarities. By learning one language, learners unconsciously are already equipped with the basics of another language. We will attempt to show the connections between French, Spanish and English.

Assessment for learning: two case studies in Vietnam

Date and Time:

For years, the focus of assessment in Vietnam has been on the results of learning. It often comes in the form of tests designed to measure how much the students know from what they have been taught, not what they can do with the language they have learned.
