Kyoto JALT:

Effective Methods for Japanese as a Second Language Public Speaking

Date: Saturday, May 12th, 2007 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Speaker: Peter Sakura

When do Japanese learners typically make speeches? What specific phrases can be used in formal situations? How are speeches evaluated? What resources are available? This workshop, intended for people who are either teaching or learning Japanese as a second language, aims to identify effective methods for public speaking. For example, time will be devoted to exploring what can be said at opening and closing ceremonies. Using concrete examples and templates from workshop handouts, actual speeches may be composed for use in future situations. Workshop participants are invited to bring their own teaching materials or speeches to share. Other JSL teaching and learning techniques will be discussed.
