Mary Sisk Noguchi of Meijo University, writer of the column Kanji Clinic (http://www.kanjiclinic.com/) for the Japan Times, will present "Which Kanji Dictionary Can Best Meet Your Kanji-Learning Needs?" Sunday, May 26th, 13:30-17:00; (Registration from 13:00) at Tokyo Kasei Gakuin ? Tsukuba Women's University. Sponsored by JALT (Japan Association for Language Teaching), members are free, and one-day members are 500 yen.
Are you learning kanji? Are you teaching Japanese to foreigners from non-kanji using countries? If so, we hope to see you at this active workshop. Japanese-English character dictionaries are highly comprehensive tools for mastering kanji and vocabulary, indispensable to the attainment of literacy in Japanese as a Second Language (JSL). There are currently four such dictionaries in print. At least one of them may be on your bookshelf already! Using a variety of hands-on activities, this workshop will demonstrate how the four dictionaries differ in their indexing systems, overall aims, and numerous features. Kanji learners will be enabled to knowledgeably select the dictionary best suited to their own kanji learning needs. Japanese teachers will learn how to advise their students about character dictionaries. Tokyo Kasei Gakuin Tsukuba Women's University is about a 15-minute walk straight north (towards Mt. Tsukuba) from Tsukuba Center Bus Terminal on the pedestrian path which runs the length of Tsukuba City. It is about a 2-minute bus ride from Bus Stop #1 of the Tsukuba Center Bus Terminal. Any bus which goes to the University of Tsukuba stops at the bus stop beside the University.
