Video: Extensive Reading Workshop for University Staff (Japanese)

ER for Staff -a training workshop at Tohoku University

This 90-minute workshop on using extensive reading for self-study in English was conducted in Japanese at the Tohoku University Library on December 26th, 2013. I really don’t like listening to myself speak Japanese (it sounds very different to what I hear in my head) but I guess this is something I will get used to eventually (after all, I went through the same process watching my presentations in English and am now fairly comfortable with that).

Your Japanese is so much better than most foreigners who give lectures. It is very natural and comfortable. It wasn’t distracting to your message, either. I haven’t the time to listen to it all, but I am so impressed that you were willing to take on a Japanese lecture. The preparation is so much harder than it would be for an English lecture. But, you really need to get a Japanese lecture down so that you can reach a larger message with such an important topic. I feel like I would like to do that with my lecture on learning disabilities in the EFL classroom. If the venue presents itself, I might be willing to take on the task.
