Call for Papers: Japan in the World, the World in Japan: A Methodological Approach

We are pleased to announce the third “Japan in the World and the World in Japan: A Methodological Approach” international symposium. This year’s event will be held at the Center for Japanese Language and Culture, Osaka University (Minoh Campus), on March 3rd and 4th, 2018.

2) presentations introducing novel syllabi, teaching methods and materials;

3) demo lessons centred on content-based class activities.
