05Learning at SILSAPM ProgramArea Studies and Plurilingual / Multicultural Education ProgramSILS started the APM program (Area Studies and Plurilingual/ Multicultural Education Program) in 2017. This program is held in French, Spanish, Chinese and Korean. It focuses on not only acquiring the language, but also CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning). With this, student can learn about the target country’s culture, history, economy and politics from different angles with the target language as well.Beyond Global English: understanding the world in its own wordsWhile learning specialized knowledge, it is possible to acquire practical language skills.In SILS, plurilingual-multicultural education is part of what students seek, receive, and draw from for nding success in their personal and professional lives, both in Japan and abroad. Understanding the world, helping others to understand Japan, getting a proper grasp of social and cultural differences across communities and how these differences can impact all the other elds covered in our curriculum, from economy to politics, education, and art, is what plurilingual-multicultural education is about. To fully acknowledge the diversity of the world, Japanese and global English are no longer enough: all languages are pathways to a sharper vision of what different communities are, think, and aspire to. As part of the MEXT Top Global University project, the APM program strengthens our students’ skills through the CLIL approach in Chinese, French, Korean, and Spanish, and prepares them for academic and professional expertise in these languages. From the time I entered university, I continued to take Spanish language classes. As I wanted to improve my language skills while studying economics, a subject that I was interested in, I chose to study abroad at the Autonomous University of Madrid. After returning to Japan, to maintain my language ability and to further enhance my understanding of economics, I started to take the APM courses. As the class size was small, we learned through lectures and discussions, focusing on the economy and politics of Latin America and Spain. As there were many opportunities to share my opinions and thoughts in the classes, there was an increased awareness “to participate actively” in the lesson. I believe that I was able to reenact the learning environment, close to what I had gone through in the classrooms at the study abroad destination. On top of that, there were students who had experienced studying abroad in various regions and students who were about to leave for study abroad in the class. It was the most ideal environment to exchange information. I did not allow my study abroad experience, one of SILS’s most attractive factors, go to waste. As I was able to further strengthen my practical language ability, I had found the APM course to be exceptionally benecial.From StudentNAKAMURA, MoekaAdmitted in 2017Graduate of Hakuyo Senior High School (Japan)ProfessorDETEY, Sylvain Matthieu JulienFrom Faculty MemberCourse List related to APMFrenchSpanishChineseKoreanIntroductory Lecture Course(in English)APM- Introduction to French StudiesAPM- Introduction to Spain and Latin America: History, Society and CultureAPM- Introduction to Area Study MethodsAPM- Korean Working-class literatureIntermediate Lecture Course(in English)APM- Korean Society and SexualityIntermediate Lecture Course(in English and L3)※APM- Understanding French CultureAPM- Spanish Language through Area Studies: Spanish myths and stereotypes (Spanish CLIL-preparation for study abroad in a Spanish-speaking country)APM- The History of Chinese Sociology in the 20th CenturyAPM- Understanding Korean Society: 1945 - 2020APM- Understanding French PoliticsStudy AbroadIntermediate Lecture Course(in English and L3)※APM- Rural Society and Governance in Contemporary ChinaIntermediate Lecture Course(in L3)※APM- Populism in France and JapanAPM- Hispanic Travelers in Japan: cultural and literary intersections between the Hispanic World and JapanAdvanced Lecture Course(in English)APM- Populism and the Crisis of Democracy: a Comparative PerspectiveAPM- Hispanism in JapanAdvanced Lecture Course(in English and L3)※APM- Korea and Post-colonialism in the Cold War systemAdvanced Lecture Course(in L3)※APM- Political Science: a French PerspectiveAPM- Japonism in Spain and Latin America: The Inspiration of JapanAPM- The Analects of Confucius: a Seminar of Close ReadingAPM- Recent Research in Korean Culture※L3: French, Spanish, Chinese, Korean13
