An Introduction to Japanese Culture and Language Teaching in Primary Education

On Friday 22 May, 2015, the University of Edinburgh and the J-Clan Initiative will host  a workshop exploring ways of taking advantage of the new Scottish 1 + 2 languages policy, which hopes to introduce two additional languages at primary level, one from Primary 1, and the second by Primary 5, by 2020. This is a very exciting initiative, and I am very pleased to be delivering one of the keynote talks at the workshop.
