Oxford University Press English Seminars

Oxford University Press and the Daily Yomiuri are co-sponsoring a series of seminars featuring two leading figures in English language usage. "Grammar and Dictionaries with Henry Widdowson and Michael Swan" kicked off last Thursday in Tokyo and visited Aichi, Osaka and Fukuoka over the weekend. Today's seminar is at Hokkaido University in Sapporo from 6pm to 9pm, and the series finishes tomorrow at Dokkyo University in Soka, Saitama Prefecture, from 6pm to 9pm. Widdowson (photo) is a professor emeritus at the University of London, and Swan is the author of the definitive "Practical English Usage."
