We have a packed schedule with speakers from all over Japan and indeed, all over the world, who will be talking on a wide range of topics which link neuroscience, psychology, and EFL. And of course, there will be plenty of opportunities to connect with other participants, to charge up your brain at special sessions, and to have fun! After all, neuroELT believes that learning is more effective when it is fun!
See you at FAB4!
The FAB4 Committee
The brain is organic and plastic. It learns dynamically. It forgets easily.
No emotion, no learning. You forget information that does not excite your body.
Don't be fooled by neuromyths. Your brain continues to learn, even at old age.
Pursue creative projects. Keep studying. It will make you happy.
Exercise makes you smarter. Try 40 minutes, twice a week.
Only 10% of brain usage? It's a lie.
You use 100% of your brain every day.
Differentiate your instruction. Every brain is built different.
Sleep enhances insight. Sleep enhances creativity.
Stress is brain poison. Avoid prolonged stress.
Game playing is great for the brain.
Take breaks from work. Naps are good for the brain.
Humans are social creatures. Talk to inspiring people everyday.
Eat blueberries. They do your neurons good.
Small challenges everyday make you happy.

Neuroscience has much to offer the field of ELT, and the FAB4 conference is on the forefront of this exciting new wave. We are witnessing the emergence of an exciting new field called neuroELT.
What can Neuroscience teach EFL teachers? This question is explored annually at FAB events in different cities across Japan. There will be three plenary speaker sessions this year, along with vetted presentations, Pecha Kuchas, and poster sessions. Content will link neuroscientific research with theory and practical pedagogy for the teaching of EFL at the international level. Exciting times are upon us. We hope you will join us on this voyage!
