ETJ Certificate Course:

The Certificate in Teaching Japanese Students

Date: Monday, October 14th, 2002 Time: 10:00 AM - 5:30 PM

Speaker: Maurice Jamall, Rob Waring, Mark O'Neil, and Paul Riley

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.
This course has been designed to address the 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.
Two levels of Certification:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  • The next session will be held in Spring 2003.
Certificates will be issued under the names 'Oxford University Press' and 'David English House,' both internationally-recognized organizations.
