Additional Application: Fiscal Year 2021 Online Training Program for Teachers of the Japanese-Language

The Japan Foundation Japanese-Language Institute, Urawa will conduct a new "Online Training Program for Japanese-Language Teachers" in FY 2021. The application deadline for this online training program was December 2020, but the deadline has been extended as the number of participants failed to meet capacity.

Applications will be accepted from those who wish to participate in this training program and want to learn Japanese teaching methods and improve their skills as Japanese language teachers.

Program Outline

This program is an online training program for those currently working as Japanese-language teachers teaching outside of Japan to learn the theory and basic knowledge for teaching themes related to Japanese language teaching methods. For FY 2021, we provide five themes as follows: (1) "JF Standard for Japanese-Language Education", (2) "Japanese-Language Education and Culture", (3) "Teaching Reading Comprehension", (4) "Rethinking of Teaching Japanese Grammar" and (5) "Teaching Business Japanese: Understanding Learner's Needs." All programs will consist of pre-study sessions for all participants, as well as live sessions, individual consultations, and post-session assignments.

In the pre-study, participants study individually using newly prepared materials from the Japan Foundation Japanese-Language Institute, Urawa, as well as working on assignments.

In the live sessions, all participants are connected online with the Japan Foundation Japanese-Language Institute, Urawa enabling them to discuss their prior studies, which allows them to confirm and deepen their understanding of the content.
