Language Teaching Workshop 1 Title:

Teaching English in English: Strategies for Success

演題:「英語で行う英語教育 ~成功の秘訣とは?~」

Presenter: Christopher Hollis of the Hokuei Board of Education



Language Teaching Workshop 2 Title:

Using Language Teaching History to Advocate Task-Based Teaching

演題:「タスクに基づく言語指導法の提案 ~言語教育史を利用して~」

Presenter: Shirley Leane of Tottori University



Abstract 1:

“Teaching English in English: Strategies for Success”

「英語で行う英語教育 ~成功の秘訣とは?~」

Drawing on recent research in language teaching, I will demonstrate a variety of activities that can be used to effectively teach English using only English in the classroom. Inspiring learners to convey meaning using English, to use their imagination, and to interact in English with their peers (and teacher), these activities will also encourage students to take an active part in lessons and to enjoy the process of language learning. We will also discuss how teachers can overcome the need to use Japanese. I will then introduce some guiding principles for successfully teaching English in English and participants will work in groups on activities that suit their specific teaching needs.


Abstract 2:

“Using language teaching history to advocate task-based teaching”

「タスクに基づく言語指導法の提案 ~言語教育史を利用して~」

My aim is to promote the value of task-based teaching. I will begin with a brief explanation of how the three main philosophies of education have influenced language teaching over the years. This will be followed by small group discussions about the advantages of each teaching style. I will then argue that the advantages of each philosophy are covered by task-based teaching. Finally, we will talk about how we can use task-based activities to develop students’ communication abilities in all four skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing).


Please join us for an early dinner social at 大戸屋 (Ootoya) in Tottori city after the presentation. We hope to begin at 5pm.
