We will learn basic knowledge, attitude and communication skills needed to support learners of Japanese, not as teachers but as people in community. We will first learn the basics concepts of foreign language teaching and course design. Secondly, we will observe different types of Japanese classes and teaching materials, and understand variations in learners' situations and needs such as international students or children. In so doing, students will be able to reflect their concepts of education, teachers, or learning styles. We will find answers to the question of how to assist Japanese learners with diversified backgrounds.
