How do Japanese-university English learners look to you?
Date: Sunday, October 4th, 2015 Time: 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Speaker: Etsuko Shimo, Kinki University, Faculty of Applied Sociology
Have you ever felt that English L1 teachers (ETs) and Japanese L1 teachers (JTs) have different opinions of their Japanese students? In many university-level English learning programs in Japan, ETs and JTs work together for shared curriculum goals. However, they are often assigned different teaching roles and may have different expectations towards their students. The presenter will discuss the results of a teacher belief survey which explored Japanese university English teachers' perceptions about their students' characteristics (e.g, personalities and attitudes towards learning English). The presenter will also share implications and suggestions for classroom pedagogy and curricular designs based on the study findings. *Lunch at a nearby restaurant to follow the event*
