Jinrikisha- how we learnt Japanese
A series of six parts of audio recordings and podcasts where students at the SOAS Language Centre are invited to talk, in an optimistic and positive way, about the joys and frustrations of learning Japanese. Students, from beginners to intermediate, have come together to discuss what they found easy or difficult about learning the language. The recordings provide support and motivation for other students as well as some wonderful and original learning tips. Students are encouraged to reflect on their learning experience, and to become more autonomous. Teachers become more aware of the learners' needs and learning methods. The project has effectively created a community of learners who rarely meet.
