This exciting event, hosted by the Japanese department within the University of Edinburgh School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures, will give participants the opportunity to experience an introduction to the language and culture of Japan and to explore the rationale for the inclusion of Japanese in secondary and primary curriculum. The event will share practice and approaches to developing Japanese language and culture and will provide information about upcoming courses and resource packages for schools.
This workshop is the first in a series of workshops, courses and development packages in Japanese language and culture.
