John Finucane (SCEJALT): Communicative Activities for Elementry School

Abstract: This workshop demonstrates how modelling activities is much more effective and fun, than simply telling students what to do. It helps attendees experience a typical team taught class from a young learners point of view. It introduces several activities that can be used to teach vocabulary to young learners.

The JET Programme (JET) is a large-scale exchange programme administered by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIR), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) and the Council of Local Authorities for International Relations (CLAIR) in Japan.  The JET Programme aims to promote internationalisation in Japan’s local communities by improving foreign language education and developing international exchange at the community level.
