Japanese Introduction SOW

An introduction to the Japanese language and culture that I made for my secondary school Japanese club. It covers introductory phrases, an outline of the three alphabets of Japanese (hiragana, katakana and kanji), simple questions and answers, numbers and a bit of calligraphy using hiragana. Contains a 58 slide PowerPoint and Hiragana/Katakana handouts.

Learn Japanese With Jokes - sample

Learn Japanese With Jokes - sample is a sample of the full book, Learn Japanese With Jokes. In the sample there are ten jokes in Japanese together with vocabulary support and English translations. There are lots of different ways you can use them in class: As revision to illustrate a grammar point. Matching exercise - can they match the Japanese jokes with the English translations? Reading practice - short reading in Japanese and they are rewarded with a laugh if they understand it. Shouting dictations. Jigsaw text (cut up a joke line by line, can your pupils put it back together?) As a reward for good work/behaviour. The book has proved very popular with lots of teachers (and pupils). Why not give it a try?
