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:

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:
