Meeting Description:

The 1st International Symposium on Applied Phonetics will be held in Nagoya, Japan, on March 25-28. Late March is the most beautiful season in Japan, with cherry trees blooming everywhere. Nagoya is famous for many historical sites, including Nagoya Castle and the Tokugawa Museum.

Interest in the importance of speech communication has been growing in recent years, and phonetic knowledge is essential in the teaching of any language. In our increasingly globalized society, educators involved in teaching pronunciation have an important role to play, but many feel isolated and are uncertain about what and how to teach.

This symposium offers an unprecedented opportunity to raise questions, discuss issues, and share information, in particular:

- To present research results and themes in phonetic education
- To bring up issues and problems in relation to phonetic education
- To report on phonetic education from your country or organization
