Primary Japanese Up-skilling Course - Level 2
Our Japanese up-skilling course is a fun and interactive way of increasing your knowledge of Japanese vocabulary and confidence in pronouncing words correctly whilst, at the same time, learning practical games and activities that can be used in the classroom the very next day.
The course focuses on:
- confidence in conversational Japanese;
- speaking and listening skills;
- writing Japanese characters;
- cultural awareness;
- cross-curricular themes;
- teaching resources currently available.
This course follows on from the Level 1 course or is suitable for teachers with a basic Japanese knowledge.
This course is funded by the Japan Foundation and is free of charge to delegates.
