Ready Steady Nihongo Final Report


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.

  1. My name is Kae Sato-Goodsell.
    I am wondering if this webpage owner is Anne Rajakumar.

    If you are, please email me.

    Kind Regards,

    • Hi Kae,
      I have only just noticed your message! How are you!! Are you still living in MElbourne. It’s hard to believe that I have lived in the UK for nearly 15 years now! Let’s keep in touch.
      Best wishes,

  2. Hi Anne,
    My schools are interested in beginning your Yonde Kaite program and purchasing the workbooks for each student. The link to Insight doesn’t seem to be working. Please advise.

    • Hi Peta,
      Not sure what is going there, but I will contact them and try and find out!
      Best wishes,
