Workbook 58 (write in Japanese.)
If you didn't pass your days of the month quiz last week yet you'll take it Tues right at the beginning of class.
We're on the last section of CHAPTER 7 (in the book under your bed?) We'll learn how to talk about going to places and how to get there.
Can you tell time?
Can you say the date and day?
Can you invite someone to an event (won't you...) and accept an invitation (let's...)
Invitations (started in class Thursday) are due Tuesday. (See prior post for a sample!) Be sure to include thematic art.
Here's the quizlet set you should be practicing
Let's practice! Songs due mokuyobi (shimekiri wa mokuyobi desu)
This is my first year trying to use a blog. The feedback I've gotten from students is that they don't check it very often. I'm doing a little survey- each time you check it could you post a short comment in Japanese? Feel free to ask a question, too. Just let me know that you were here.
Last week: We started learning how to tell time and read a calendar. In April we'll be learning how to say each day of the week and will master the dates by the end of the month. We'll also be inviting people and writing invitations.
What should you study?
Anything in quizlet from chapter 7. Which video do you like? (A lot of people like puni puni because it's short. I prefer the Japan Society video because you can learn more.
Let's make our own dates videos for fun!

HW: Look up your new vocabulary from chapter 7. Due tomorrow.
