Dear fellow ELT professionals and educators,
Japanese student voices on "Go Study Abroad!"
Following on from innovative and inspiring work, The Real Voice of Students,
Tim Murphey and his students at Kanda University of International Studies,
deliver their next important message on studying abroad, challenging some of
the assumptions that may underlie, "...Japanese young people's perceived turn
against studying abroad and increasingly inward-looking attitudes." (The
Mainichi Daily News, January 5, 2011)
Watch their video, read the short article, and feel free to ask questions,
share your thoughts & ideas, and pass this on to other learners, teachers, and
Call for submissions
