Creating a "Learning Community"

English teachers need to build good "learning communities" in the classroom and give their students as many opportunities as possible to use English so they can build up their confidence for practical purposes, according to a Daily Yomiuri report on a seminar held in Osaka on Saturday. Jointly sponsored by the newspaper and McGraw-Hill Education, it was attended by nearly 80 English-language teachers, who came to listen to Kathleen Graves, of the graduate faculty at the School for International Training, and Prof. Kensaku Yoshida of Sophia University.
