Discover how to teach Japanese language to primary level pupils...through learning Japanese yourself!
As of September 2014 it is compulsory for all maintained primary schools in England to teach at least one foreign language at Key Stage 2. In response to this, the Japan Foundation London is holding a series of workshops and events to help prepare primary teachers who are teaching, or would like to teach, Japanese language.
In this two day course, primary school teachers with little or no prior knowledge of Japanese will have the opportunity not only to learn the basics of Japanese language and culture, but also how to impart their new knowledge on to their pupils.
The course will include content from the Japan Foundation Japanese Scheme of Work for Primary Schools, which is packed full of lesson plans, resources and exciting and fun ideas for teaching primary-level Japanese. We will also give advice on funding, resources and other assistance available to get Japanese classes up and running at your school. On the second day, you will even be able to have the chance to practise your Japanese while making authentic sushi!
This is an incredible opportunity for primary school teachers to learn new language skills that will benefit your entire school – don’t miss out!
“The teacher was brilliant and the course was well prepared and delivered.” (Rishi Gohil, 2014 participant)
“I loved the writing aspect- this really helped to clarify the different alphabets and their uses.” (Kimberley Devonshire, 2014 participant)
Fee: £20.00 (includes all course materials and ingredients for sushi-making)
Please note that spaces are limited. This course is for teachers with absolute beginner level, or those who have only studied a little Japanese. Priority will be given to teachers, or those training to teach, at a primary school.
