Please cite your sources! I hate deducting points for this!!!

Education in Japan

This week you'll learn more about education in Japanese primary and secondary schools, after school education and social education in Japan.


In previous culture discussions we learned about Japanese schools. This week we'll focus a bit more on after school education and social education.


Use the link below to access this week's reading. It takes a while for all of this to load. :( You'll want to look at the info on Primary and Secondary Schools (starting on page 141), After School Education (starting on page 151( and Social Education (starting on page 161)

Mid Term Project

Our class mascot Tanaka san created a slide for the mid term project for Lesson 4. Take a look below and listen to her recording to see how she set up her slide.

This is great because Tanaka san used a relevant picture for her slide, wrote everything in Japanese, did not use English or romaji and had 4 great lines with vocabulary and grammar from Lesson 4. She also included a recording of her saying all 4 lines.


Let's take a closer look at the lines:


みんなさん、あそびましょうか。Everyone, shall we hang out?

こうえんであいましょうか。 Shall we meet at the park?

ほうかごはどうですか。How about after school?

じゃ、さんじごろにあいましょう。Well, around 3:00 let's meet.


Be sure to carefully read the directions to include everything you need to include to maximize your points for your mid term project.

Your Mid Term Project is due on March 17, 2016.
