Submit Speaking Assignment + NCVPS Survey

NCVPS Student Survey

Hear ye, hear ye oh students of Japanese 1 at NCVPS! Stand up and make your voices HEARD today! Please take a few minutes to complete the course survey by clicking the link here: http://goo.gl/LdrvI9


A huge ありがとうございます to those of you who already did the survey! If you did not do this yet, please submit your survey today.

5 things you need to know about the L13 Speaking Assignment:

  1. You need a partner to complete the assignment. Use the wiki to sign up if you do not have a partner you usually work with or still need one.
  2. Download and use the powerpoint template to create your submission. Remember you have to do *both* parts A and B.
  3. Please submit your audio files to me SEPARATELY as well as in the powerpoint. Often the powerpoint does not save the audio files correctly.
  4. Follow all directions carefully. These are posted under the Speaking Assignment link in BlackBoard.
  5. Do not forget to post response postings to at least 2 of your fellow classmates.

Michael B's Awesome Ride!

Recently, Michael B. participated in a BMX racing event in Georgia!! Michael spends many hours each day training and practicing - it is his goal to represent the USA in the Olympics! Based on this awesome video I'd say he's already got it in the bag. Check out Michael B.'s video, and a huge ありがとうございます for sharing this with us Michael!


Do you have a special skill, talent or accomplishment you'd like me to feature in Announcements? Let me know and I'll be happy to post it!

End of Course Project Progress?

How is your end of course project coming along?


Most of us have chatted over the course of the past few days about your EOC projects. Sounds like a lot of you are making good progress, but some of you admittedly have not started yet. If you're in this boat - that is ok! The final project is a large project but it is do-able in bite sized pieces. You still have time to make it happen!


I am available to help you with any questions you may have. Send me an email any time or contact me through phone or text.


I have office hours tonight from 6:30 - 8:30pm and am on BBIM at that time. Please contact me to day if you have questions or need help!
