Presentation abstract 発表内容
The University of Nottingham Ningbo China is a campus of a British University in China, which is involved in international exchange using Moodle. In order to offer a British Education system to the students, the learning environment and administration are in English. Most of the students have Chinese as a first language and many are willing to learn other languages (as a third language). However there is limited access to different resources and there is difficulty for tutors to provide real experiences. From 2011, our students have participated in Tandem Learning project exchanges with students at Japanese universities using Moodle Forum and Feedback, not only to exchange language but to explore the “real Japanese”. We provided different steps using different methods to practice different language skills. This presentation will introduce the unusual environment at Ningbo, where a second language (English) is used to teach a third language (Japanese), and focus on; 2) the search for different language and cultural exchange approaches for the learners, 3) difficulties sourcing opportunities to come into contact with Japanese people on a regular basis, 4) difficulties encountered accessing online platforms, 5) solutions found through cross-cultural exchange activities via Moodle, and 6) the next steps for the Tandem Learning project.
