Using Japanese Lyrics in the Language Classroom

Fuyuhiko Sekido
In this presentation, the presenter will explain an effective way to use J-pop (Japanese Pop Music) and its lyrics. One of the features is CGP, cross-gendered performance, and it makes students think about the difference between Japanese and English. The presenter will tell the exact procedure, and show what materials and activities will be successful for the class.
