TAKAKO AIKAWA: So the development of speaking and listening requires interactions with somebody else. So that has to be done in classroom because there are not so many Japanese people on campus at MIT. So classroom activities really focus on the development of listening and speaking.

Whereas reading and writing, students can do them outside of class. And then, in particular, our textbook has a so-called workbook. And then they can do writing practice by themselves. In fact, we provide assignments so that they can just practice writing at home.

For reading, our textbook has a reading section for each lesson. And we provide a reading session one day for each lesson in class.
