"Tadoku," or extensive reading (from"Ta" (多) "a lot" and "doku" （読）"to read"), simply means reading a lot of easy and interesting books without the use of a dictionary or vocabulary list. This study method is a great way to build fluency and a rich vocabulary of words and phrases one might not encounter in the classroom, all while gaining a love for the Japanese language. Come learn about the four "golden rules" used in Tadoku, and how Professor Takahashi incorporates Tadoku in her teachings at Smith College.
Atsuko Takahashi has more than 15 years of teaching experience between the United States and Japan. She has been integrating the Tadoku method into the beginning Japanese course curriculum at Smith College. Her current research focuses on pedagogical development in support of holistic learning through foreign language education, as well as evaluating metacognitive learning experiences in extensive reading for all-level Japanese learners. Her recent course project: Yomu Yomu Beginners - Tadoku Books by Japanese Learners, is available at:
