Delegates listening to Hilly Day speak about Asset Languages

On 8th May, 27 delegates attended a one-day course, "Asset Languages Day for Teachers of Japanese". The course was organised by the Japan Foundation London Language Centre and Asset Languages.

In the morning session, Asset Languages trainer Hilly Day gave an extensive overview of the Asset Languages scheme, assisted by Qualifications Manager Jemma East. In the afternoon session, Mary-Grace Browning, another Asset trainer and an experienced teacher of Japanese, spoke about issues specific to Japanese. Delegates also had the chance to look at teacher assessment packs in Japanese, try some sample tasks, and ask questions about the qualifications.

Frederique Midroit, a teacher at King Edward VI Grammar School in Chelmsford, said "Thank you again for the brilliant session on Asset. It was very informative, and it was good to meet again with some of the teachers I had met a few years ago in your training sessions."

Asset Languages is an assessment scheme which is currently available in 25 languages, including Japanese. It is designed to reward language skills for learners of all ages and abilities, from primary to adult, by measuring them against the DCSF Languages Ladder of proficiency.
