Submit Final Linguafolio Today

***DON'T FORGET TO ATTEND 2 LANGUAGE COACHING SESSIONS THIS WEEK!***

Final Linguafolio Project Due TODAY!

Please be sure to submit your final Linguafolio project no later than 11:59PM tonight.


You will need to submit a total of 5 documents:


  1. Biography with as many pages filled out that apply to you as possible. (With the exception of perhaps Pages 5 (Hosting an Exchange Student), 8 (Pen Pals), 10 (Exchanges and Study Visits), and 15, Language and Intercultural Experiences, you should have something written for all the pages.)
  2. Novice-Low checklist.
  3. Novice-Intermediate checklist.
  4. Passport
  5. Dossier cover page and Table of Contents


Your Linguafolio is worth 100 points! Be sure that you make a submission. Contact me today if you need help with this assignment.

Last EOC Project Help Session - Wednesday at 7:30PM

The last live help session with me for the EOC project will be held on Wednesday from 7:30PM - 8:30PM! During this time you will be able to bring questions and get assistance on your end of course project. If you still have a lot left to do on your EOC project, I strongly recommend coming to this session for help!


Your score on the entire EOC project will have a huge impact on your final grade. There is still time to work on your project and earn a good score if you take the initiative to work on your project and help yourself by attending this help session. Turning in a good End of Course project gives your grade a major upward boost. Not submitting an End of Course Project or an incomplete one will hurt your overall grade.


To attend this session, simply go to the Your Coach link and click the link that will allow you to enter Sarah Boutin's Collaborate Classroom instead of clicking the one you normally click for your coach. (It's down at the very bottom so you have to scroll down a bit.)

Don't Forget About Culture Cafe Tonight! Hope to see you there!

There are two parts of the EOC Project:


Part 1 is a power point presentation where you will use course material to talk about yourself in Japanese. This consists of 16 slides.


Part 2 is a Japan Travel Brochure in English.


Remember that you will have to site your sources for this project. Details are listed on the assignment page, but if you need help with this part of the assignment, please contact me TODAY.


The link to the End of Course Projects instructions is in blackboard on the left hand navigational toolbar under the End of Course Projects link.


Before submitting your project, carefully re-read the instructions to be sure your project meets all of the requirements.

Telling Others About Yourself

Do you remember how to talk about where you are from? How about the languages you speak, and things you're good at/not so good at doing? Tanaka san is back again today to help us remember how to do this. Listen to her recording below:

えいごでいみはなんですか。- What does it mean in English?

Let's review what Tanaka san said line by line:


どちらからですか。

Where are you from?


わたしはにほんからです。

I am from Japan


なにごをはなしますか。

What language do you speak?


わたしはにほんごをはなします。

I speak Japanese.


えいごをすこしはなします。

I speak a little English.


にほんごがとくいです。

I am strong at Japanese.


えいごがにがてです。

I am weak at English.



Do you remember all of this? If you need a refresher, check out the grammar notes from the lessons below.

Submit ALL Overdue Assignments ASAP!

Any assignment from lessons 8 - 13 that has not been submitted yet is overdue and needs to be submitted ASAP for a grade. 0s really hurt your grade!!


To view your missing assignments:
Open the Japanese 1 course in Blackboard and click on the My Grades tab (on the left hand navigational toolbar) and see if you have any assignments marked with a 0 or no submission. If you see any, make a note of what you're missing and make a plan to submit it.
