International Workshop " Awakening to Languages: Activities that go well with CEFR Companion Volume?" will be held.
Awakening to Languages is one of pluralistic approaches to languages and cultures, in which some of the learning activities are concerned with several linguistic varieties including those from the environment, from families and from all over the world, without exclusion of any kind. It was designed principally as a way of introducing schoolchildren to linguistic diversity (and the diversity of their own languages) at the beginning of school education but it can also be promoted as a support to language learning throughout the learners' school career.*
We will introduce you to some of the activities and teaching materials of Awakening to Languages in this workshop, so that you can understand what it is and how you can implement it in your own classes. We also mention CEFR CV and discuss with you the relationships between Awakening to Languages and CEFR CV.
The language we use in this session would be mainly English but you can use Japanese, French, German, Italian and so forth, activating your plurilingual competence. Mediation and translanguaging would be expected, so that you can experience "real" communication in a multilingual community.
