On November 5, 2017 at the George Washington University Cloyd Heck Marvin Center, J-LEARN will co-host a seminar that will discuss the current state of affairs with respect to Japanese language education in the Greater Washington DC region (to include VA Beach) in cooperation with J.LIVE Talk.
Through this seminar, we hope to reflect on why studying Japanese is important, examine who is currently studying Japanese, address opportunities and challenges to Japanese programs, and discuss ways in which advocacy for preserving such language programs can be improved.
By bringing together students, parents, educators and key stakeholders with an interest in Japan and Japanese to discuss the importance of continuing, preserving and promoting Japanese language education in the US, we hope to fine tune advocacy techniques and strategies in order to build a more robust advocacy toolbox.
