Akita JALT:

Bilingual Education in Asia and Content Materials

Date: Saturday, June 25th, 2005 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Jason Good

It seems common these days to say that Japan is lagging behind the rest of Asia with its English education, but what exactly is the rest of Asia doing with regards to English education, especially for their kids? What is being taught at the bilingual schools? We'll look at both the bilingual movement across Asia, as well as take a closer look at the North American-based reading curriculum and content materials being used by many of these schools. Many of the ideas that will be discussed can apply directly to any age group, whether children, university or adults!
