The Role Of Malaysia In Globalization Of Japanese Language Education In The Asean Region
Globalization of Japanese language education around the wor1d is growing rapidly from year to year. The number of Japanese language learners in Asean countries exceeded 1 million. Japanese language education in Malaysia has also shown encouraging developments, especially at the secondary school level. 2017 Japan Foundation Report stated that the number of Japanese language learners in Malaysia amounted to 33,224 students, with 430 teachers and 176 institutions offering Japanese language education. Along with that, in September 2015, the international symposium of Japanese language education with the theme "Role of Japanese Language Education in Southeast Asia: Network Connected with Global Human Resource" has made its own history as representatives from 9 Asean countries have met in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. The result of the symposium's discussion focuses on the importance of building academic collaboration not only among Japanese language lecturers and teachers, but also establishing networking between educational institutions and also opening opportunities for students to participate in global activities and mobility programs among Asean countries. In order to foster and enhance cooperation in developing Japanese language education, Malaysia has the potential to play a role with other countries in the Asean region.
