Elementary Japanese

(初級日本語)

Course description:

a weekly 80-mins online session, 24/7 online discussion to explore topics and issues in Japanese grammar and cultures, use English for oral communication, use Japanese for other activities (written communication, written works, reading) using translators and other supports, evidence-based curriculum

週1回80分のオンラインセッション、24/7のオンラインディスカッションで日本語の文法や文化に関するトピックや問題点を探る。口頭でのコミュニケーションは英語、その他の活動(書面でのコミュニケーション、文章作成、読解)は翻訳ツールなどのサポートを利用して日本語で行う。エビデンスに基づいたカリキュラム。

Teaching approach:

As I take a flexible, student-centered approach, there will be no textbook or fixed order of topics students need to follow; they still need to complete assignments (written works and presentation) and class activities (readings, discussion participation, discussion contributions to the class), but they generally explore whatever they want to explore and go beyond boundaries students or I initially expected. Curriculum is based on evidence and educational theories.

Course program:

This class is the first 4-month unit of Elementary Japanese course that runs for a year. The course is designed to build necessary skills and experiences to engage in oral and written discussions as well as complete individual / group design projects in Japanese (we will use English for oral discussions). It is appropriate for learners with no or limited knowledge of Japanese grammar and vocabulary) wishing to achieve intermediate-level of fluency for various purposes. Oral communicative skill development is heavily focused in this class although students will read and write extensively through their research and documenting their ideas.

About the teacher

Hi there! I'm Waka, a language educator with over 7 years of experience and a graduate student-researcher in Canada. I was born and raised in Japan. After graduating from high school in Japan, I received a Honours BA in Psychology from a Canadian university. After working as an English and Japanese teacher at a Japanese educational institution in Toronto for a year and a half, I started a MA program at University of Toronto/OISE and am accepted into a PhD program in the same department starting from this September. I specialize in second language education, inquiry-based learning, online learning, and educational software design.

I have a certificate of a 60-hours Japanese as a Foreign Language course and am currently in the middle of taking the rest of the official 420-hour course to be certified as a Japanese language educator.
