Meisei University will host their inaugural forum on Extensive Reading (ER) and Extensive Listening (EL). Meisei University is located just 40 minutes by train from Shinjuku Station, Tokyo. The morning will consist of a general overview of ER in the plenary presentation, followed by an outline of the successful ER programmes currently being carried out at the universities of the key speakers. Key speakers will also introduce innovative resources and relevant technological tools that can be used to support ER programmes.
