【Message from the presenter】

The Australian Network for Japanese as Community Language, of which I am an active member, conducts the National Study of Learners of Japanese as Community Language in Australia, a study on the Japanese language learning environments and learning resources available to children in Australia with connections to Japan. In this seminar, we will first give a brief report on the results of the national study. Participants will then be invited to discuss issues related to the learning of Japanese characters, or kanji, a key theme that emerged from the results of this study.



【Session Language】

This seminar was conducted in Japanese.
