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!

Numbers: Japanese Vocabulary Card Sort

Numbers: Japanese Vocabulary Card Sort

This is a card sort to help students learn words for numbers (30 words in total). This resource covers 1-20 and 30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100,1000,1000000. This would be a useful task with younger groups or low ability groups. There are three separate files, depending on how you want to present the task.- The 'teacher copy' shows a grid with all items already matched. - The 'student version' is a random layout, print this out and give to students. They can then cut out the items and match them, or stick them into their workbooks.- The 'quick cut' is designed so that you can produce 10 packs of cards quickly and easily using a guillotine. Each page has the same card 10 times over. This allows you to remove words that may not be suitable or needed. Alternatively you can print the same page twice double-sided to produce flash cards.

'Sport' Blockbuster Game for use in French / German / Spanish / EAL / Other Languages

'Sport' Blockbuster Game for use in French / German / Spanish / EAL / Other Languages

Blockbusters Game - works in same way as old TV show of the same name.Pupils work in teams giving sentences in French (or other language) about chosen sport. Can be differentiated so that some classes may just be giving the name of the sport in the foreign langauge, while other might have to use the words in a sentence / given tense / give an opinion.Split class in blue and white team with one team having to get a column of their colour hexagons fron top to bottom, the other team has to get a row from one side to the other. The team going across gets to go first.If the team get their sentence correct they put a hexagon of their colour on that sport symbol. Then it is the turn of the next team. Tactics come into play (e.g. blocking the other team so they have to go around the opposing team's hexagons)
