Abstract

The theme of the 12th International Symposium on Japanese Language Education and Japanese Studies:

“Changing nature of Japanese language teaching and learning in a multilingual world”

Japanese Language Education and Japanese Studies have undergone radical change in recent decades, thanks to the internationalization of educational institutions, the incorporation of “ICT” in teaching materials and classroom activities, and the popular use of smartphones by learners. All this opens up new space for research in Japanese language studies as well as opportunities to rethink innovative pedagogies for Japanese language teaching and learning. Hong Kong being a multilingual society, we hope this symposium will provide a platform for researchers, scholars and learners to present their innovative ideas on dynamic ongoing changes in language, culture and society in an increasingly multilingual world.
