Theory and Practice of Taigu Communication Education:
From “Introduction to Keigo” 
to “Business Japanese Language Education”

待遇コミュニケーション教育の理論と実践 
-敬語導入からビジネス日本語教育のアプローチとして-


What is "Taigu communication"? How can we apply its concept when we teach honorific expressions and business Japanese language? Is Taigu communication education applicable even from the elementary level? All these questions will be answered in this seminar. 

We look forward to your participation!

   Associate Professor, 
   Deputy Director of the Centre for Language Studies

Seminar Outline:

In the morning session, you will gain better understanding of “Taigu Communication” by looking at some visual materials and misuse examples, as well as having a discussion and Q&A session directly with the speaker. In the afternoon, the educational theory will be introduced and practical examples of classroom activities will be given in order for the participants to experience how to enhance Taigu communication competence in a workshop style. Through the variety of classroom activities including "Introduction to honorific expressions using a TV drama" and role plays for elementary level learners, this seminar will help Japanese language teachers to understand the concept of Taigu communication and how it can be applied to your own educational context.


午前中の講義では、待遇コミュニケーションについて、誤用例や映像を用いて、ディスカッションや質疑応答なども交えながら理解を深めます。午後のワークショップでは、基礎的な教育理論を学んでから実際の教室活動を体験します。テレビドラマを用いた敬語の導入、初級レベル学習者へのロールプレイによる会話練習など、様々な教室活動から、待遇コミュニケーション能力を高めていく方法を学びます。待遇コミュニケーション教育への理解が深まり、授業に活かせるアイデアが学べるセミナーです。
