Educational Materials for Children with Non-Japanese Ethnicity
Enhancing education for the increasing number of non-Japanese children living in Japan has become an urgent social issue. We develop educational materials in multiple languages for non-Japanese school children who study Japanese together with core subjects*. So far, we have made these materials in Portuguese, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Thai, all available on the Internet.
*For the development, we received support from Mitsui & Co., Ltd.
The educational materials are written in plain Japanese and have many drawing pictures that promote understanding so that children can learn Chinese characters and arithmetic while having fun.
