Kyushu disasters and recovery

The Board of Directors on behalf of JALT members want to express our sadness at the recent earthquakes and other resulting disasters in Kyushu and are concerned for the welfare of all those in the affected areas. We hope that our members find appropriate ways of assisting with recovery efforts. One way might be to provide contributions.

While there are many organizations starting to provide relief, one group with a proven track record is Second Harvest Japan. Donations can be made at this link.

Brett Walter (Hiroshima University)
Sunday, 10 July 2016 - 3:00pm - 5:00pm

In a lot of language classrooms, tasks are often developed that are little more than drills, having students repeat the same phrase multiple times while only replacing one or two key vocabulary words and drilling only for the sake of drilling. But recent Second Language Acquisition research has shown that effective tasks are activities that structure interaction among participants and use language for an outcome that is both concrete and focuses on the exchange of meaning. Participants in this workshop will learn about and develop different types of tasks that have a communicative purpose driving them. For details, see http://hiroshima-jalt.org
