Toyohashi JALT:

An Overview of Japanese English education from the Meiji period to the present

Date: Sunday, June 12th, 2005 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Gregg McNabb

English education in Japan is sometimes incorrectly stereotyped as a static state of grammar-translation, coupled with the memorization of grammatical minutiae in order to pass The Entrance Exam. However, from the Meiji Era, to Harold Palmer, to the JET Program, to the ministry's recent plan to cultivate "Japanese With English Abilities," Japan's English education has been "dynamic." This presentation seeks to provide an overview of important developments in Japanese English education and may be controversial with respect to future prospects.
