Report on Creative Karuta Workshop in Melbourne,Australia

On 17th April 2015, we had a chance to offer Creative Karuta Workshop at the 2015 Annual Conference of Japanese Language Teacher’s Association of Victoria (JLTAV) . The workshop was designed to familiarize the Japanese language teachers with the educational value of Creative Karuta Project.

The workshop was attended by 9 Japanese language teachers in VIC. Everybody enjoyed the session and playing Karuta with their own cards in English and Japanese. So they gave us the following comments.

“Fun, quick, interactive. I didn’t know that Karuta was a way of importing general knowledge. I will definitely try and make the some cards with my students.”

“A new teaching idea. Good to have a hands-on lesson. I enjoyed it.”
