ETJ Certificate Course:

The Certificate in Teaching Japanese Students

Date: Sunday, June 2nd, 2002 Time: 10:00 AM - 5:30 PM

Speaker: Rob Waring, Maurice Jamall, David Paul, Curtis Kelly

So many internationally-recognized training courses introduce theories and methodology which come out of European or North American teaching situations. Many of the assumptions behind these courses are less relevant in Japan. The Certificate in Teaching Japanese Students, now in its third year, is designed to address the specific needs of teachers in Japan. All ideas derive from classroom research, and trial-and-error experience in various kinds of Japanese teaching situations. The course is appropriate for teachers of Japanese junior / senior high school students, college students, and adults. There are two training days per year in four areas of Japan.
Two levels of Certification:
Certificates will be issued under the names 'Oxford University Press' and 'David English House,' both internationally-recognized organizations. To obtain the Introductory Certificate, it is necessary to attend one day of training (Spring or Fall) and write a report based on the training sessions attended. To obtain the Certificate, it is necessary to attend two one-day training courses (one in Spring and one in Fall) and write two reports. The order in which you attend is up to you.
Trainers for the Spring 2002 session:
All trainers are leading professionals in the field and have extensive teaching and teacher-training experience. The spring trainers are Dr. Rob Waring of Notre Dame Seishin Daigaku, Maurice Jamall of Seikei Daigaku, David Paul of David English House, and Curtis Kelly of Heian Jogakuin Daigaku.
