The Due Date Calendar lists all assignments for the course and when they are due. If you have not already printed a copy - please do so and post it somewhere you see it every day to make sure you are keeping up with your assignments.

Falling Behind?

Sunshine and warm weather often makes it harder for students to focus and keep up with their assignments. Make Japanese a priority so you can earn a good grade and keep progressing in the language. Think back to why you decided to take the class and use that as motivation to keep submitting your assignments. Many students are still missing assignments from lessons 9 -11. All overdue work needs to be submitted ASAP.

If you need to make up any coaching sessions, please plan to make it up this week. Check the schedule below and find a time that works best for you. You may attend make up sessions at any time with any coach, and may attend multiple sessions in a single day.

Submit L12 Vocabulary Flashcards Today

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. :(

Study your vocabulary flashcards all week to help you prepare for your quiz on friday! :)

Start Module 5, Lesson 12 Today

From the left hand toolbar, navigate to Course Modules > Module > M5. L11. Lesson 12 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.

Final Project

Japanese 2 has no final exam, but there is a final project. Students should start working on their final projects this week if they have not already started them.

The final project is a lot like the Mid Term project where you will create a multimedia presentation using the grammar and vocabulary you learned in lessons 9 - 15. You will need to create 1 slide per lesson with 5 sentences and use a corresponding picture for each slide.

For full details please go to the Course Projects link on the left hand navigational toolbar in Blackboard and click on the link that says Final Project.

I recommend taking some time this week to work on your slides from lessons 11 and 12 while this knowledge will be fresh in your head. :)
