EOC Project Due TOMORROW!

ATTEND 2 LANGUAGE COACHING SESSIONS THIS WEEK!

Last EOC Project Help Session - TONIGHT at 7:30PM

The last live help session with me for the EOC project will be held TONIGHT from 7:30PM - 8:30PM! During this time you will be able to bring questions and get assistance on your end of course project. If you still things to do on your EOC project, plan to be this session for help!


Your score on the entire EOC project will have a huge impact on your final grade. There is still time to work on your project and earn a good score if you take the initiative to work on your project and help yourself by attending this help session.


Turning in a good End of Course project gives your grade a major upward boost. Not submitting an End of Course Project or an incomplete one will hurt your overall grade.


To attend this session, simply go to the Your Coach link and click the link that will allow you to enter Sarah Boutin's Collaborate Classroom instead of clicking the one you normally click for your coach. (It's down at the very bottom so you have to scroll down a bit.)

End of Course Project Due on Thursday - 12/17

*Please submit your End of Course project no later than this Thursday*


There are two parts of the EOC Project:


Part 1 is a power point presentation where you will use course material to talk about yourself in Japanese. This consists of 16 slides.


Part 2 is a Japan Travel Brochure in English.


Remember that you will have to site your sources for this project. Details are listed on the assignment page, but if you need help with this part of the assignment, please contact me TODAY.


The link to the End of Course Projects instructions is in blackboard on the left hand navigational toolbar under the End of Course Projects link.


Before submitting your project, carefully re-read the instructions to be sure your project meets all of the requirements.


You may submit your End of Course Project early if you finish before Thursday.


がんばりましょう!

  2. Novice-Low checklist.
  3. Novice-Intermediate checklist.

Talking about your family and home life.

Do you remember how to talk about your family and things you do at home? Tanaka san is back again today to help us remember how to do this. Listen to her recording below:

えいごでいみはなんですか。- What does it mean in English?

Let's review what Tanaka san said line by line:


ごかぞくはなんにんですか。

How many people are in your family?


わたしのかぞくはよにんです。

My family has 4 people.


ちちはかいしゃいんです。

My dad is a company employee.


おとうとははっさいです。

My younger brother is 8 years old.


ははのしゅみはかいものです。

My mother's hobby is shopping.


うちでなにをしますか。

What do you do at home?


うちでしゅくだいをします。

At home, I do homework.



Do you remember all of this? If you need a refresher, check out the grammar notes from the lessons below.
