Intensive Seminar for Teachers
     
What is the Intensive Seminar for Teachers?
The seminar, held at The Japan Foundation, Sydney enables teachers to develop language skills, gain confidence using Japanese, and to develop language teaching strategies and skills which they can apply in their own classrooms. Specific focuses include intercultural language learning (ILL) and ICT-based learning. Participants will be immersed in a Japanese language environment suited to their level, and will have ample opportunity for networking. 

Language consultants from JPF Sydney will conduct the 3.5 day seminar, together with other invited lecturers.
