Ibaraki JALT:

Teaching Japanese Students Listening Strategies

Date: Sunday, April 25th, 2004 Time: 1:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Hiroko Hagino, Ph.D., Waseda Unviersity

How can we accelerate the process of improving listening skills of Japanese students through classroom instruction? One answer would be to teach the students "how to fish"(listening strategy) rather than giving them "a fish" (specific knowledge). The speaker will present some findings that she obtained through her doctoral research studies which focused on the understanding of lexical words that are key elements in the retrieval of information conveyed through speech, in non-interactive, transactional settings.
