Next month, i’ll be starting my Japanese teacher training course.
If i do pass the exam, i think i’ll be the 1st Singaporean to pass the teaching course.
To take this exam, you need to 1st, complete a 420 hours teaching training course, then sit for the exam in Japan. Once one passes the exam, he/she will own a “license” to teach Japanese officially.
One would need to take up the following modules. Looks very hard heh? One would think that i am taking the exam for myself. No, that ain’t true. I hope i can use the knowledge gained to help my students know more about Japan and the language.
