Poster session in 2015 at TU
The first joint poster session was held in February 2015 when Chuo’s Faculty of Letters Professor Shigenori Wakabayashi and his team of students visited Thammasat as a part of Chuo’s Global Studies overseas research program.
During the session this year, TU’s Assistant Professor Dr. Mr. Supaorn Phoocharoensil gave a lecture on “Moving Towards ELF: Daunting Challenges for English Teachers and Learners in Thailand”, and Chuo’s Professor Wakabayashi gave a lecture on “Why is Syntax Easier than Morphology in Second Language Acquisition?” Following the lectures, there was a joint poster presentation and undergraduate and graduate students from both universities actively participated in discussions on learning English as a second language. After the poster session, the guests enjoyed a Japanese drum performance by Chuo’s taiko club “Ko-ou” and then joined the banquet at G Square.
