すごい!今日は金曜日です。

Ok, there are no new assignments due again today, but don't spend your 90 minutes for Japanese mindlessly surfing the internet despite it being Friday!


Please submit a course survey for Japanese 2 if you have not done this yet.


Double check to make sure that you have submitted all work from lessons 9 - 15.


Spend some time on your final linguafolio today.


Make more slides for your final project. Remember that your hard work will pay off!

Culture Cafe TONIGHT at 8PM!

Please join us in the NCVPS Culture Cafe for a presentation on studying in Japan LIVE FROM JAPAN with our coach Logan Lampkins! Any student who attends and tells me the most interesting thing they learned will earn a bonus point.

Lesson 12 Sample Slide

Check out my above sample slide! I am not the world's greatest artist but I wanted to illustrate (literally) that you can make your own artwork for your slides! Feel free to be creative but make sure the artwork you make is relevant to at least one of the 5 lines on your slide. Let's break down what's on the slide:


あけましておめでとうございます。

Happy New Year!


こちらこそ。

It is I who should say so.


きれいなねんがじょうをかきました。

I wrote a beautiful new year greeting card.


きょう、ろくじ に おきて, あさごはん をたべました。

きのう、きっさてん に いって、 コーヒー を のみました。

Yesterday I went to the coffee shop and drank coffee.
