Hamamatsu JALT:

The Dejima-zation of English

Date: Sunday, April 15th, 2012 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Albert McCann

This presentation will be an interactive examination of the obstacles to learn to speak English in Japan. The presenter will go over some historical and philosophical reasons for this. The intention of this session is for all of us to share our stories and to realize what we work against. That is, a slowly changing education system and a deap seated resistance to foreign culture and influence. We will work together to find some solutions to the reality we all face as teachers.

Albert McCann has been an English teacher in Japan for the past seven years. He has worked in both junior and senior high schools, public and private. Currently, he teaches solo in the Inuyama NET Program and has the daily challenge to motivate young students to communicate in English.
