Okayama JALT:

Preparing students for academic study abroad

Date: Sunday, June 15th, 2008 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Eri Okuda, Oxford University Press

Students will cope much better in study-abroad programs if they are adequately prepared with the strategies they need to listen, take notes, and discuss ideas independently and confidently. Through her own anecdotes, Eri Okuda will talk about the problems/issues that students will face and skills that they need in order to survive academic study overseas. OUP has a video-based series, 'Lecture Ready' that trains students in the listening and language skills they need during lectures in their future study.
