The Autumn / Spring Workshop is an annual gathering aimed at sharing practical solutions or classroom research on common challenges we face in teaching spoken communication to Japanese students.
Our specific framework for teaching spoken communication includes:
(1) Building speaking skills for an interactive, real-time conversation on everyday life topics
(2) Regular conversation testing from the beginning of a course
(3) Raising awareness of the challenges posed by cultural differences in speaking styles and how to overcome them.
Presentations during the Workshop cover these topics from a very practical, “theory-lite” perspective.
