Final Project Slide Sample

Check out Tanaka san's final project slide for Lesson 14 below, and click the link below that to listen to her recording of the slide.

Let's see what she said line by line:

さくらまつりにいきませんか。

Won't you go to the cherry blossom festival?


はい、いそぎましょう。

Yes, let's hurry.


たべもの や おもちゃ を うっています。

They are selling things like food and toys.


おなががすいていますか。

Are you hungry?


はい、なにもたべませんでしたから。

Yes, because I did not eat anything.


This slide is excellent because it has 5 sentences using grammar and vocabulary from lesson 14 and a picture that corresponds to at least one of the sentences (in this case the sakura blossoms) on the slide.
