Series of workshops “What can we do in the English classroom?” (to be conducted in 2022)

The title “What can be done in the English classroom?” asks the question, “What is possible for teachers and learners?” and “What can be created?” in the time and space of the English classroom and the activities that take place there. The English classroom should be more than just a place to cram knowledge and skills; it should be a space of encounter where something is born, a time of creation where something is produced. What kind and how much potential does the English classroom have, what is needed to realize it, and what can we do? Let’s listen to the teachers who are leading the way in English education in Japan, share ideas, and have fun, but also think seriously.
