Abstract: The guardian of English poetry, the inventor of over 1,000 words still in use today, and one of the greatest players with our language, Shakespeare has given us a treasure trove of English to read – funny how so much of it doesn’t make sense until it’s spoken out-loud. Actor and author Ben Crystal explores the accent, the theatrical conventions, and the world of Shakespeare, to reveal a bright and beautiful English.

We are seeking contributions about the experience of raising bilingual/bicultural children in Japan. We are primarily interested in the experience of raising bilingual/bicultural children outside of Japan’s large urban centres where English education options are generally not present, and where international opportunities are limited. Additionally, in some of the more rural or peripheral parts of Japan, even in small cities, it is often challenging to establish and sustain face-to-face social/community support networks because of limited numbers and geographic distance. If you would like to share a story about the challenges of raising bilingual kids in peripheral areas of Japan, please consider making a submission. Thus far we have received outstanding stories/contributions ranging in scope from maintaining L1 literacy when both parents are foreign nationals to nurturing bilingualism in a hearing-impaired child.
