The Due Date Calendar lists all assignments for the course and when they are due. If you have not already printed a copy - please do so and post it somewhere you see it every day to make sure you are keeping up with your assignments.

Start Module 1, Lesson 2 + Writing Assignment

From the left hand toolbar, navigate to Course Modules > Module 1 (School) > M1. L2. Lesson 2 (How old are you?)


You will want to visit the following links under Lesson 2:


  • Overview
  • Grammar Notes
  • Vocabulary
  • Video, Audio, Japanese Text, English Translation


Take your time to carefully review the material. I recommend watching the video several times today and pausing after each line to repeat what was previously said aloud so you can practice your pronunciation.


You'll also need to submit your Lesson 2 writing assignment today. If you choose to submit through a photo, please be sure I can see all of the characters on the worksheet clearly so I can grade your assignment.


Also be sure you have completed all of the course orientation material and Lesson 1 material. Please submit any outstanding items ASAP to avoid late penalties.
