Come and see the Japan Foundation at Language Show London 2018!


The Language Show London is the UK's largest language event for those who offer products and services to language teachers, learners, translators, linguists, language professionals and businesses.


This year, the Japan Foundation is once again giving visitors chances to learn about Japanese language and culture. We will be running Japanese language tasters, talks and an information stand!


Our attractions include


The Japan Foundation Information Stand
When: 9-11 November (Fri-Sun) 2018

Where: Olympia London, Hammersmith Road, London W14 8UX.

Packed full of information about studying and teaching Japanese in the UK, our stand will be staffed with members of the Japan Foundation who would be delighted to give you advice on your Japanese studies.


Talk: "Snow Monkey - Science in the Language Class at the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland" Sandie Robb
When: 10 November (Saturday), 15:30-16:15

Sandie Robb, senior education officer at RZSS, will give a talk about promoting the cross-curricular teaching of languages and science. With the help of a Japan Foundation grant, Sandie produced the "Snow Monkey Pack", a collection of fun learning materials centred on the Japanese macaque. Using the pack, pupils have been able to learn all about Japanese language as well as Japanese wildlife, georgraphy and culture. Cross-curricular teaching is an innovative way to help children encounter languages and simultaneously deepen their understanding of the wider world.
