Spring Break Make Ups

Many students have assignments that are overdue from lessons 9 and 10 and many students need to make up coaching sessions from the prior weeks. All overdue work needs to be submitted ASAP.

Language coaching well be held as scheduled Monday - Thursday through March and April. If you need to miss a regularly scheduled coaching session, please plan to make it up ahead of time if possible. You may attend make up sessions at any time with any coach, and may attend multiple sessions in a single day.

New Module, New Set of Vocabulary Flashcards

We start a new module today so you'll want to start a new set of vocabulary flashcards. Some of you have been using the same powerpoint presentation for your flashcards since the start of the course and are uploading large files to Blackboard. I recommend starting a new set of vocabulary flashcards for Lesson 11's vocabulary.

Please create a multimedia presentation using a source like PowerPoint, Google Slides or Prezi for your flashcards.

Be sure that your audio can be heard/is properly embedded if you choose to use PowerPoint. I recommend using prezi.com to create a presentation online using a FREE account to avoid audio problems. If I can't hear your recordings, I can't give you credit for them. :(

Start Module 5, Lesson 11 Today

From the left hand toolbar, navigate to Course Modules > Module > M5. L11. Lesson 11 to see this week's materials

You will want to visit the following links here today:

  • Overview
  • Video, Audio, Japanese Text, English Translation

You'll also want to carefully review the lesson 11 vocabulary and grammar notes. Links below for easy reference.

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