Bringing Fun & Community Back
This event was largely planned and run by three very capable student volunteers: Chika Yamane (Kanda University of International Studies), Itsuki Takahashi (Gifu Shotoku Gakuen University), and Minhung Lee (Ryutsu Keizai University).
The event began with a presentation from guest speaker Jackson Lee (Lecturer, Toyo University). The talk, “Ten self-access activities to learn English without studying”, was packed full of fun ways for students to make English part of their lives outside the classroom. Then, the participants discussed topics (such as language learning motivation) in breakout rooms, and the forum concluded with a brainstorming session focused on SAC welcome events for the new school year.
The 14 student participants came from six universities across Japan:
Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University (Oita)
Ryutsu Keizai University (Ibaraki)
Kanda University of International Studies (Chiba)
Otemon Gakuin University (Osaka)
Gifu Shotoku Gakuen University (Gifu)
Gifu University (Gifu)
There were also two JASAL regular members who came to observe, and Hisako, Katherine, and Clair were also present. Here are some photos of the event.
