Talk: “Japan’s English Language Education in the Age of Globalization"

November 20, 2:30pm - 4:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Andrew In College Collaboration Center, Wist Hall Add to Calendar

Japan has been implementing the JET Program (Japan Exchange and Teaching Program) for the past 29 years as a response to the ever-increasing importance of English as a global language. The core of the JET Program is that team-teaching between a native-speaking English teacher and a local English teacher is promoted in their English language education. Through the JET Program, the communication between Japan’s grassroots and its counterparts in western countries has been strengthened, which eventually quickens the course of internalizing Japan and popularizing communicative teaching method in Japan’s English language education. Join Yiwu Mou in his talk on a case study from his research. Mr. Mou is an associate professor of English language education in School of Foreign Languages, Lanzhou Jiaotong University, China. He is currently a visiting scholar at the College of Education. To see the full schedule of events for MĀNOA International Education Week, visit
