2017.07.28 BLOG 学校法人 宮田学園 西日本国際教育学園 国際貢献
The third lecture of how to teach Japanese was made at Wednesday, July 26th at International Exchange Center. Ms. Matsuo (Matsuo Kaoru) worked as a Japanese teacher in Japan and came to Germany in 2001. She currently works at an institute of East Asian Studies in a Germany university as an assistant and part-time teacher. Also, she teaches in high school.
The lecture was consisted of two parts, which are lecture part and trial lesson/questions and answers session.
The Japanese education standard based on German CEFR skill model focuses on improvement of communication skills and the skills to adapt with other cultures. It more focuses on which level a leaner can achieve not just what to teach. They use “marugoto” as their text book not “Minna no Nihongo.” She told that “Marugoto” could have improved her students’ Japanese skills because it orients “out-put education” We have been considering to use “marugoto” textbook, so her story was interesting for us to think about using that text book.
In the trial lesson, she gave advice to use more daily conversation for “conversation practice” not to use unnatural conversation.
Ms. Matsuo will give advice to us for text book selection later.
We would like to improve teachers’ skills as well through lecture like this time.
