The Autumn Workshop is an annual gathering aimed at sharing practical solutions or classroom research on common challenges we face in teaching oral communication to Japanese students.
Our specific framework for teaching oral communication includes:
(1) Building speaking skills for interactive, real-time conversation on everyday life topics
(2) Regular oral testing
(3) Raising awareness of cross-cultural differences in speaking styles and how to overcome them.
Presentations during the Autumn Workshop will cover these topics from a very practical, “theory-lite” perspective.
