The Gifu Chapter holds interactive presentations approximately 8 times per year at Heartful Square on the 2nd floor of Gifu JR station. Our speakers focus on practical teaching techniques that participants can apply to many different age groups. We also hold an annual summer BBQ along the Nagara river and a winter Christmas turkey dinner.

Upcoming Events

Marco Brazil (Smart Kids Circle)
Saturday, 27 September 2014 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Research shows the brain is more activated by movement than by sitting which increases fatigue and reduces concentration. Learning by doing creates more neural networks in the brain. Moreover children find active learning to be more fun and engaging, which means they’re more incline to learn. In this workshop the presenter will share some classroom-tested games you can use right away. So come and be ready to have fun.

Mark Rebuck (Meijo University)
Saturday, 18 October 2014 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

This workshop will introduce several variations on ‘standard dictation,' focusing in particular on combining dictation with talk-radio audio clips and YouTube videos. The presenter will introduce examples of such dictation-authentic media activities from both general English and EMP (English for Medical Purposes) classes. Participants should gain a deeper appreciation of the versatility of dictation, pointers on different dictation procedures, and concrete ideas to adapt to their own teaching contexts.
