Tandem Language Learning Project (TLLP) 2018 Presentations
TLLP is a bilingual research exchange conducted by the Asia Institute at The University of Melbourne and the Graduate School of International Media, Communication and Tourism Studies at Hokkaido University.
The program pairs Melbourne and Hokkaido students, who then engage in research information exchange, supporting each other's acquisition of relevant target academic language skills. During the exchange, students prepare a research abstract, presentation slides and script in their target language. Melbourne students receive feedback from Hokkaido students on their Japanese work, and return give feedback to Hokkaido students on their English.
At the end of the program, all students prepare a paper in their target language with the help of their program partner.
Registration: TLLP runs in tandem with the International Conference on New Frontiers in Japanese Studies, but requires a separate registration. If you would like to attend, please
e-mail Ben Morgan at email@example.com with your full name, phone number, and affiliation. Due to space limitations, numbers are strictly capped at 15. One booking covers the entire day’s presentations.
