Speaker: Toshiko Sugino (Dept. of Foreign Language. National Defense Academy)
According to a 2004 Immigration Control Office survey, Nikkei -Brazilians account for nearly 300,000 of the 2 million registered foreign nationals. In a city where the largest number of Nikkei-Brazilians reside, some parents choose Portuguese-mediated Brazilian schools over Japanese public schools for their children’s education. The presenter investigated the factors that affect these children’s language learning from historical, socio-political, and socio-economic perspectives.
