japanese flag Message from JLTI President in relation to new project to implement ELP in Japanese LC classes

きのうPPLIのカレン・ラドックさんと会合を持ち、その結果、「LC日本語コースのためのELP作成プロジェクト」を 立ち上げることになりました。詳しくは添付のドキュメント をご覧ください。また、アイルランドにおけるELPについては、ELPページをご参照ください。

 

プロジェクトリーダーは織田先生が引き受けてくださいますが、プロジェクトに参加していただく方を募集します。ELP及び作業等の詳しいことは織田先生、または茅本先生までお尋ねください。

また、今後来年度に向けて関連するワークショップも行う予定です。アイルランドにおける日本語のELPが公になれば、LC日本語のみならず、TYにも適応することができ、アイルランドで日本語を勉強する理由に対する有効な意義付けになります。また、学習者が大学をはじめ将来日本語続けていくためのアドバンテージにもなります。ぜひ、みなさまのご協力をよろしくお願いいたします。
