Enhancing Japanese speaking skills

Years 11 and 12 IGS Japanese students recently attended the Japanese Teachers' Association of NSW (JTAN) Speaking Day at SHORE School, conducted by HSC examiners.

Year 11 student Sabine Taylor is completing Year 12 Japanese as an accelerant and took part in the workshop.

“The workshop helped me practise and improve my Japanese and conversation skills, and helped build my confidence around the approaching HSC speaking exam,” Sabine said.

The workshop included four speaking sessions with various HSC examiners who conversed with students and gave helpful feedback.

“The workshop was not only very beneficial but was an eminently valuable experience and really helped me gain confidence.”
