ILA 2018 and JASAL encourage ILA 2018 participants to join the JASAL SAC tour on the afternoon of Wednesday, September 5th before the pre-conference workshops. JASAL (Japan Association for Self-Access Learning) is non-profit professional organization devoted to promoting self-access language learning in Japan and organizes several SAC tours visiting different SACs in Japan every year. You do not need to attend the ILA conference to take part in the SAC tour.
We will visit three self-access centers in the Kobe area. The three centers have different student populations and have different features as self-access centers.
The tour will include a guided tour by the host institutions and then a Q&A/Discussion time. Please register HERE if you are interested in participating. Free of charge (but train transportation fee, 190 yen (¥190), needs to be paid by participants).
