Course Updates on February 16, 2016

Welcome 12 week students to Japanese IIAB and for 18, 16, and 14 week students, your grades have been updated.

We sure have had some "samui tenki (cold weather)" but I think it is getting "atatakai tenki (warm weather)." Then soon it will be "atsui tenki (hot weather)" in the South. I would like to enjoy just a mild weather of spring like in Japan. Of course people in Japan are still in "iyana tenki (bad weather)" with snow storms and freezing temperature, so I should be happy where I am.

Just as I have used some Japanese in English sentences above, try inserting words and phrases you learned in Japanese as you think and talk during the day. Teach your family members a few words of Japanese. They will be impressed with what you are learning. Remember, the more you use, the better you learn when learning a foreign language.

Happy learning^.^

GaVS Spring Break

GaVS Spring Break is scheduled as April 4 ~ 8

If your school has a different time for spring break, you are still responsible for submitting your assignments on Assignments Due Dates. Please adjust your schedule accordingly.

For example, if your spring break is the week of March 28 and want to have a week off, you need to plan to not to take a break from GaVS work when GaVS is taking a break. You just need to do the work for the week of March 28 during the week of April 4 and submit the assignments by April 14.

If your spring break is the week of April 11, you also need to work during GaVS spring break and submit the required assignments before your spring break starts. As long as you submit by the midnight of April 14, you are fine.

If you need assistance in managing your schedule, please contact me.
