On the afternoon of Saturday, July 11, 2015, the Language Education Center (LEC) at Okayama University, in conjunction with its Teacher Development Workshop, is inviting JASAL members to visit the L-café, its social space for language learning. This will be followed by a short JASAL event and a presentation by Charles Browne (Meiji Gakuin University), sponsored by the LEC and Okayama JALT.
“Covering Your Bets: The Reading/High-Frequency Vocabulary Connection” by Charles Browne
This presentation will review and discuss some of the literature on the importance of high frequency vocabulary in helping to improve reading comprehension, the way extensive reading and intensive vocabulary study are complementary and symbiotic learning activities and then introduce several free word lists, online tools and websites that the presenter has developed in order to help students and teachers to work towards improvement in these two very important areas of second language acquisition.
The presentation will be followed by the Okayama JALT annual beer garden party. (More details to follow)
