Miyazaki JALT:

Promoting a Holistic Approach to Speaking in the Classroom

Date: Saturday, July 14th, 2007 Time: 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Speaker: Simon Capper, Japanese Red Cross Hiroshima College of Nursing

Many Language learners (and teachers) have a tendency to overly focus on linguistic features at the expense of the paralinguistic and nonverbal aspects of communication. Similarly, language teaching materials often fail to acknowledge the importance of these crucial channels. This workshop will demonstrate materials and activities that raise awareness of these important features. Participants will be invited to share their own teaching and learning experiences, activities and ideas.

Organization: Miyazaki Chapter of the Japan Association for Language Teaching (Miyazaki JALT)

Cost: free

Venue: Miyazaki Municipal University Rm. #310

Location: Miyazaki City, Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan
