Summary:
In recent years the number of schools offering Japanese nationwide has increased dramatically. Because of the tremendous popularity of Japanese language and the shortage of teachers, quite a few untrained, non-native and native teachers are in the classrooms and are expected to teach several levels of Japanese. These guidelines are intended to assist individual teachers and professional associations throughout the United States in designing Japanese language curricula. They are meant to serve as a framework from which language teaching can be expanded and are intended to allow teachers to enhance and strengthen the quality of Japanese language instruction. The Washington State Japanese Language Curriculum Guidelines Committee was an ad hoc group of high school and college teachers and private individuals who, between 1991 and 1997, volunteered their services to improve the quality of Japanese language teaching and learning in their state.
