A two-day Japanese language education workshop was held at TUEC on the weekend of May 2-3. The workshop was the eleventh, so far, in TUEC’s series of Japanese language education workshops aimed at Japanese language teachers in the Nordic countries, and held twice annually (in the spring and fall) since 2010. The workshop series targets institutions offering Japanese language education with primary focus being on universities with Japan studies programs. The eleventh workshop, entitled “Considering the Form and Content of Grammar Education Aimed at Achieving Behavioral Objectives,” was a call to re-examine the claims of a “new Japanese grammar education” that breaks with the traditional approach of giving primary attention to sentence structure, and instead places emphasis on communicational objectives. The workshop endeavored to uncover which aspects of this ‘new approach’ can actually be considered original contributions to the field of Japanese grammar education.
