Ibaraki JALT:

International Students' Day

Date: Sunday, February 27th, 2005 Time: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Students from Other Countries Studying in Japan

In the first part of today's event, we have invited several students from various countries around the world to speak briefly about life in their homeland or about their experiences living in Japan. These short presentations will be in English and Japanese. A translator will be provided for each speaker so that we may welcome interested people from the local community. In the second part of the day, we ask the question: Ever wonder why Japanese students act the way they do in English class? Many teachers from other countries who come to Japan make the following statements about Japanese learners. "Japanese students are shy. Japanese students don't (or are afraid to) speak out. Japanese students don't think, etc." Why not explore the legitimacy of these statements that stereotype our students? Come listen to some Japanese learners talk about their attitudes and why they act the way they do in class.
