The JALT Extensive Reading SIG

The JALT ER SIG exists to help promote Extensive Reading (ER) in Japan and via our website, our newsletter, the ERJ Journal, and presentations throughout Japan we aim to help teachers set up and make the most of their ER programmes.

全国語学教育学会多読分野別研究部会「JALT ER SIG」は、講師達がERプログラムをスムーズに始められるよう、またそれを有効的に利用できることを目的に活動しています。またこの概念を元に、私達のウエブサイト、会報、ERJ雑誌、プレゼンテーションなどを通じERの促進を促しています。
