Oxford University Press is celebrating 20 years of Let's Go, the world's bestselling coursebook for children, written by Ritsuko Nakata, Karen Frazier and ELTNEWS.com columnist Barbara Hoskins Sakamato. As part of the fun, OUP has put up a special interview conducted by Barb with her co-authors, along with a special video.
The fourth edition of Let's Go will be released later this year.
OUP Japan will also be holding a mammoth, all-Japan kids tour starting Saturday, June 25th in Hakodate. According to OUP: "This unprecedented series of workshops will give teachers fresh ideas to help their classes run more smoothly. We will answer the questions that many teachers have through real examples from materials that are proven to work in the classroom, such as the number one bestselling Let's Go; the Oxford Reading Tree used in 80% of British elementary schools; or the new coursebook Everybody Up. By the end of the day, you will leave the venue full of confidence and activity ideas - and ready to go straight to your next English class!"
The tour will visit all 47 prefectures in Japan and admission is free.
