This book serves to develop a strong internal narrative that connects the diverse dimensions of intercultural experiences, ranging from scholarly work on Japanese immigration history, language pedagogy on intercultural competences, to personal accounts by the people from diverse cultural and linguistic background. In other words, it offers those who are keenly aware of the importance of the development of a global mindset with a platform or common ground to share their endeavours formerly pigeonholed and isolated, by fostering interest in community engagement and partnership building.
Subjects: Japanese language, social aspects, study and teaching, ethnic identity, cultural relations, multiculturalism, bilingualism
