Learning Japanese The Fun Way Bundle

Learning Japanese The Fun Way Bundle

Are you learning Japanese? Are you looking for a fun way to learn Japanese? I have developed a way to learn different languages based on my experience as an ESL teacher. This pack has 57 different settings for students to talk about in Japanese. The worksheets themselves are in English and the students do need to translate the places and objects they see into Japanese. At the end of the session, the students can play a fun game of word bingo to show they have mastered that day's vocabulary. Try it, it is a lot of fun for everyone!

Vocabulary Treasure Hunt

Vocabulary Treasure Hunt

A fun plenary or starter game for the main beginners' topics in any language. On each slide there are 16 squares with five treasures hidden behind them. Students translate the vocabulary on the boxes and if they get it right they choose a square and get a point/sweet/sticker if they find a treasure. This activity is based on the gamification theory that random rewards make games more addictive and fun. There are 34 slides with treasures hidden in different places about these topics (two slides for each topic) Numbers 1-20 Numbers 20-100 Letters Animals Family Months Dates Appearance Verb endings Question words Sports Hobbies Hobbies/Sports and Time phrases Subjects Days Town Food Note: In presentation mode click on squares to make them disappear and reveal the treasures.

Whizzy loop

Whizzy loop

Use this whizzy loop by pressing the 's' key on your keyboard to start and stop it spinning super fast. You can change the text on the slides quite easily to suit your purposes - there is one here with numbers, one with dates and one with sentences on and several other ideas - at its simplest you can just ask pupils to translate the slide it stops on but you can use it in many, many different ways - put pupil names on it as a name selector, or sentences starters and a connective to build sentences - you choose. I have put several examples on here to help with ideas, but the concept of randomising things is the same throughout. Enjoy! The pupils LOVE coming to press the 's' key.....the simplest of things seem to please them.

57 Japanese Setting Cards For Conversation Practice

57 Japanese Setting Cards For Conversation Practice

Welcome to the Let’s Talk in Japanese! pack. This set of cards looks at 57 different settings. The teacher describes something in the top card. The students then use this to model a sentence using the bottom set of pictures. There are lots of things to see and describe in every picture. When the students have completed this task, they can repeat it by working in pairs to discuss each picture. What works very well is for the two pictures to be directly projected on a wall. The teacher talks about the top picture, such as 'In my picture, I can see two seagulls flying.'... then the students model their responses, using the sentence structure provided by the teacher. There are lots of different ways you could use this pack. You could laminate them into two cards and get each student to talk about what they had seen in their picture. ***** Please note - these resources provide visual prompts and support to the students, not direct language instruction **************
