If you took part in CCLT3 on December 18 2016, you are very welcome to share a short reflection (300-500 words/600-1000 ji) or a short article (1000-2500 words/2000-5000 ji) in English, Japanese, or both languages. Please send us your writing as a Word .docx file by January 31st, and we will respond as soon as we can. If you have any questions about this, feel free to contact us at<email@example.com>. Many thanks!
Thirty-four students and 30 teachers attended, and by all accounts everybody had a very enjoyable afternoon – inspiring presentations and convivial discussions, with many different LD members leading the reflection circles after each of the three rounds of presentations. A warm thank you to everyone who attended, who helped students take part, and who invited friends and colleagues to come along and join in, and who created together a really supportive, warm atmosphere! Thank you too to Mao Kaiseto, Momoko Nagae, and Aoi Takahashi for doing a superb job as conference volunteers and to Huw and Sami for running the registration desk in such a welcoming and genki fashion. A special thank you to Ken for making all the arrangements for LD to use Otsuma Womens’ University for CCLT3 – and for organising the bonenkai afterwards in the Indian restaurant. Thank you one and all!
Our first get-together of 2017 will be taking place on Sunday January 22nd at Otsuma Women’s University, and we will be sending further details to SIG members in the greater Tokyo area at the start of January.
