The Yamagata Chapter usually holds meetings one Saturday per month from 1:30pm-3:30pm at Yamagata University's Kojirakawa Campus. We strive to sponsor talks that are practical and relevant for teachers and learners in Japan. In the summer, we hold a workshop for elementary school teachers of English. Our members are friendly and outgoing and we provide a relaxed atmosphere to share ideas. Please check the Events Calendar or our Facebook page for the latest events. We look forward to seeing you!

Abstract- In this special talk, the speakers will discuss effective ideas, materials, and methodology that have lead to success in their own classrooms. The presenters will give specific examples and explanations that have been particularly helpful to learners as well as how these can be adapted to other classes or environments. It is hoped that this meeting will inspire teachers and learners alike. Active audience participation is encouraged.
