Get Those Overdue Assignments In This Weekend

Everyone got a "Get Out of Jail Free" card on overdue assignments during the past 2 weeks of class.

Any assignment from lessons 1 and 2 that is not submitted prior to Monday morning (February 1st) is subject to point deductions for being overdue.

Going forward from February 1st, all assignments submitted past their due date are subject to point deductions for being overdue.

Go to the My Grades link on the left hand navigational toolbar today to check your grades and make sure you don't have any dreaded 0s for any of your assignments.

Also be sure you check your feedback regularly to help you level up in Japanese! Watch the video below if you need help doing this.

Print out your DUE DATE CALENDAR (link below) and keep it somewhere you see it each day.

If you don't understand something or need help, this does not excuse overdue work. It is your responsibility to seek help if you need it. Contact me if you need help or don't understand something so we can figure it out together and get you on your merry way to Good Grade Land in Japanese 2. :D

Are you watching your videos?

Every lesson has a video that goes along with the new grammar and vocabulary we're working on each week. Watching these videos is a great way to expose yourself to native speakers using what we learn in class in everyday conversations. The links to the videos from lessons 1 and 2 are below. Please watch them a few times over the weekend to help you practice.
