The online discussion will be between students at CU Boulder (CU) and students at Shinsu University taking English during the Spring 2017 semester.
In order to fully learn a language, you need interaction with the language and culture. With this project, we are trying to overcome the problem of learning another language (Japanese) in a foreign country (English speaking) in an academic setting. This project offers the students new resources to native speakers through online discussions on culture topics.
Students will be granted access to Moodle starting April 17th:
Students will receive 1 article and 1 short videos in Japanese and 1 article in English by end of April for the discussion.
ALTEC staff member Naomi Wahls has started an initial research on intercultural competency through telecollaboration. This project will be a continuation of that prior research.
