      3 Factors of Communication and Related Classroom Activities

      by Mr. Carlos Luis Santos (Lecturer, Ateneo de Manila University; Trainee, Japan Foundation Long-term Training Program for Foreign Teachers of the Japanese Language in Urawa, Saitama, Japan, September 2015 – March 2016; Former in-house Japanese Language Instructor, MHI Technical Services, Inc., 2012-2013)

       

      When teaching how to converse in Japanese, perhaps many teachers rely on their textbooks and have their students memorize the sample conversations, or do the conversation exercises contained therein. However, this method of plain memorization may not be practical for students when faced with real-life situations where they have to interact with Japanese people. With this in mind, the 3 factors of communication (information gap, response, and choice), and how they should be contained within communication activities in the Japanese language classroom will be presented. In addition, the value of authenticity, i.e. how close the exercises and dialogue in textbooks come to real-life situations, will also be explained.
