At my 7th lesson last week, I suddenly notice that… HEY!! WE ARE USING A PRETTY DARN GOOD TEXTBOOK!!!
Used in Ikoma, for pre-advance classes.
Locally, Japanese learning textbook published in Japan cost about twice the original Yen. And Taiwanese made and printed books are more affordable. They are most of the time created with native Japanese teachers and the content is as good, if not better, as they are very orientated towards foreigner/non-native learners.
Each lesson starts with a theme. Here, it is “For example.”
And then a passage.
New vocabulary and grammar are picked out to be studied.
What I love that there is also a open question section and summary. Summarising is some amazing practice!!
One cool thing with Ikoma is, the teachers reproduced some question on worksheets with more spaces to write. We hand in these for marking.
It was only last week that I remember that in both primary and secondary school, my Chinese textbook has the same kind of format. It worked well for me.
So there are summary tests as and when.
Q1 and 2 are both 3 and 4 marks, I am not sure my answers make the mark. xD
Recently I have been using liquid paper (correction fluid) a lot in class and that take sometime to dry.
Finally decided to try correction tape after allllllllllllllllll thessssssssssssseeeeeeeee yeaaarrssss. It is crazy how we held on to things that are not the best for us.
THIS WAS SUCH A PHILOSOPHICAL MOMENT FOR ME.
