“Participant’s thought on 20th Japanese Language Research Team Meeting.”

        On February 23rd of 2010, 20th Japanese Language Research Team Meeting was held by Mongolian Japanese language Teachers Association at Mongolia-Japan Center for Human Resource Development. The center took part in organizing the meeting as well. In the meeting, sum of 16 teachers participated and shared their views.
The meeting’s main purpose was to expand the Japanese language research in Mongolia, strengthen the informative network among Japanese language teachers, and facilitate in development of educational Japanese language.

    In the first part of the meeting, Hill Yukari Japanese language professor at National University of Mongolia did a presentation called “The Play”. The play is being used as both teaching and learning techniques in this class of sophomores. It is based on student’s ability and conversational skills. In class, students get into groups and reenact their choice of play. They choose from Mongolian, Japanese or world famous stories such as “Ugly Duckling”, “Emu pays back”, “Who’s oldest?” and “Cinderella”.
Even though I was unsure of how students will react if play is proposed, will they be involved, and what will be the outcome, professor stated. He continued to share that he decided to proceed with the play against his doubts. Surprisingly, students reacted positively and they were very much involved from day one.

    Honestly, our students who are learning Japanese language lack the opportunity to use what they have learned in class. This is no secret to any of us. Certainly, the play project had a great influence on students.
In the second part of the meeting, teachers split into groups and picked topics of their choice to participate in thread of discussion. My team discussed about current challenges that are facing Mongolian universities and institutes’ Japanese language educational program.
Following our discussion, many teachers from various schools shared their class curriculum and the various complexities they face. Not only I, and other teachers were not aware of other schools but their own.
Out of 16 teachers, only three were Mongolian teachers. I thought that was unfortunate, because Mongolian teachers should be more involved to meet and network with other Japanese teachers. This meetings is a great opportunity to share views, teaching styles and most importantly explore new techniques and resources that each can adapt to improve their skills.
