Japanese pronunciation learning support for your students:
Let’s think about what you should do, what you want to do and what you can do.

Japanese culture is considered to be a high-context culture, in which feelings are expressed through vocal inflections rather than words. If a Japanese language learner has not been taught about these inflections they will simply use the knowledge which underlies the use of their own language and, as a result, may face difficulties in conveying their intended meaning when communicating, such as showing courtesy or gratitude. So, what advice would you give to your Japanese language learners who are experiencing these kinds of limitations with their pronunciation?
In this workshop, we will explore the content of the web-based teaching material “Tsutaeru Hatsuon” ( and reconsider what we can do to help our students in terms of supporting their Japanese pronunciation learning.
