The Nihongo Tanken Centre offers a range of activities to visiting students, closely aligned with the outcomes of the NSW syllabuses.
Participation in a Nihongo Tanken Centre program offers students full immersion in a total Japanese experience. From the initial welcome to the last goodbye, all communication is in Japanese, with centre staff experienced in communicating effectively with both Japanese and non-Japanese speakers from Kindergarten to Year 12, including students with special learning needs.
A Nihongo Tanken Centre visit is a stimulating and motivating learning experience for both students and teachers. Programs developed by the Nihongo Tanken Centre offer a wide range of activities designed to suit every level of language proficiency, immersing students in the Japanese language and culture.
At the centre:
- students engage in a 4-hour program
- the program is customised to suit each school’s needs
- activities enable students to practise and extend their language skills, working in teams
- students may also engage in interactive tasks using an interactive whiteboard.
Stage 5 – alignment of activities to syllabus outcomes (coming in 2021)
Additional support for Stage 6
The Nihongo Tanken Centre also offers holidays workshops for HSC students from all sectors, and online speaking sessions for Stage 6 students in NSW public schools. These events are advertised via our social media channels, including the Languages NSW blog and our Facebook group.
