What are you doing this weekend?

しゅうまつになにをしますか。(しゅうまつ = weekend)


Let's review how to extend invitations:


Use ~ませんか to ask "won't you...?" (This is a more formal way to extend an invite.)

えいがをみませんか。(Won't you watch a movie?)

レストランですしをたべませんか。(Won't you eat sushi at a restaurant?)


Use ~ましょうか to ask "shall we...?" (This is not as formal, but not very casual either.)

コーヒーをのみましょうか。(Shall we drink coffee?)

かいものにいきましょうか。(Shall we go shopping?)


Use ~ましょう to say "Let's..." (This is casual, and not asking but suggesting.)

テレビゲームをしましょう。(Let's play video games.)

おんかぐをききましょう。(Let's listen to music.)

Rainbow Bridge

Miranda G. and I chatted on IM for a bit last night. Miranda told me about the Rainbow Bridge (pictured below) located in Japan. A quick google search yields lots of neat info about it. This might be a good topic for your Japan travel brochure? ;) Check it out!

NCVPS Peer Tutors

Remember that NCVPS is looking for peer tutors in all classes - including Japanese 1.


Activities like this look very impressive on a resume and look *great* on a college application!


Sending kudos to Stephen N. and Lily S. stepped up to the task. I will be sending their info along shortly. You could join too!! Get in touch with me if you're interested. Snooze not, lose not. ;)
