Reflecting on Effective Input in the Japanese Classroom
All of us, teachers, conduct input activities such as listening and reading in our Nihongo classes, but are we doing these activities effectively? Let us learn what Comprehensible Input「理解可能なインプット」 is from the angle of Second Language Acquisition by focusing on a Reading Comprehension activity. To illustrate, there will be a model lesson from the new JF teaching material IRODORI. A checklist will be given to help make your input activities more effective.
