Dinner at Korean Restaurant “Chidimi”-5

Hi, this is the website for “0 yen! Japanese Lesson”. Come to my class that is taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. Please check the latest information on this site. Note that even though my class is “Mian Fei! Ri Yu Jiao Shi” in Chinese characters, my Japanese lesson is not only for Chinese, but for everyone who wants to learn Japanese language.

Just before I went to Chidimi and had a dinner there. It is near Honcho Market and next to “International Barcode”. Please use the following latitude and longitude to search on  Google Maps.

37.919569,139.046535

Chidimi has already appeared so many times on this site, so I don’t think I have to explain that it is Korean restaurant. Chidimi is written in Hiragana for hanging cloth at the entrance, but in Katakana on the door glass.

i139

Since I decided to go to a sport club after the dinner, I ordered a glass of Non alcohol beer. So it is not beer, but beer taste drink without alcohol. One thing very good in Chidimi is the wide screen TV that plays Korean TV show. Tonight I watched a drama with Japanese captions.

i140

The lady in the restaurant recommended me to order “Miso Chigae”. So I asked her set menu of Miso Chigae. She gave me several Hanchan dishes and fish!. Egg-plants at the bottom left was so good to eat with rice.

i141

Close up photo of Miso Chigae. I asked her, “Please do not make it salty”. So she used less salt. Probably she worried that the taste was too weak for her sense. She asked me “Isn’t it too weak?” several times. But for me it was very good.

i142

Again, the important mission in Chidimi was to replace the monthly flier. If you want to see the following yellow flier, go to Chidimi and eat a lot of Korean Food.

ちぢみ様、細かいお金を用意していなくて、大変失礼しました。ここにお詫び申し上げます。あとから来られた方と、面白い展開になればと思うのですが、、、はてさて。

Dinner at Chinese Restaurant “Mampukuen (Wanfuyuan)”

Hi, this is the website for “0 yen! Japanese Lesson”. Come to my class that is taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. Please check the latest information on this site. Note that even though my class is “Mian Fei ! Ri Yu Jiao Shi” in Chinese characters, my Japanese lesson is not only for Chinese, but for everyone who wants to learn Japanese language.

Wednesday night I went to Manpukuen in Honcho for my dinner. The restaurant is in front of Takeyama Hospital. It is near the back door of Itoyokado supermarket. Please google the latitude and longitude below for exact location.

37.920680,139.047734

It was a just before 9 p.m., already a little late for dinner. There were two Japanese customers other than me.

i133

What should we think about drinking this kind of liquids? One of my answers is that, if I ordered only food menu, this Chinese restaurant could get a very few profit because prices of dishes are surprisingly cheap. I don’t ask to make this hot or cold, but I only ask them to serve this as “room temperature”. So it is not labor-consuming for them to serve this to me.

i134

Here is my dinner. Egg plants something—I forgot the name.

As always, this thing should be left. The lady in the restaurant received this and gave me a lot of cookies. Thanks a lot, I do appreciate them.

帰り際、お母さんからたくさんクッキーをいただきました。ありがとうございます。

Dinner at Thai Food Restaurant “Thai Fight Gold” in Furumachi

Hi, this is the website for “0 yen! Japanese Lesson”. Come to my class that is taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. Please check the latest information on this site. Note that even though my class is “Mian Fei ! Ri Yu Jiao Shi” in Chinese characters, my Japanese lesson is not only for Chinese, but for everyone who wants to learn Japanese language.

Tonight I went to a Thai food restaurant “Thai Fight Gold” in Furumachi 8-banchi. It is one block north from the Bus route, the opposite side of road of Niigata City Hotel. Please use the following latitude and longitude for google maps.

37.923948,139.045228

Website of “Thai Fight Gold”

It is on the second floor (in British sense, the first floor), but you will easily find the place because these boards are put around the entrance.

i128

Because it’s the center of night entertainment area of Furumachi, and the inside of the restaurant looked like a night club, I actually worried about the charge they would ask my to pay.

i129

For the first time in a Thai food restaurant, I always order Green Curry.

i130

The lady in the restaurant told me that these pieces of red pepper were so hot. Thanks to her advice, I got rid of them to avoid a fire incident in my mouth. If a fire had happened, my beer would have been a fire extinguisher. Luckily enough that did not happen.

You see green leaves as well as red pepper. I asked the lady and chef what herb this was. He said like “Holaper” (Sorry for misspelling, I don’t know the correct one). The herb had so good flavor that I wanted to plant it on my garden. Checking on the internet, it seems to be “sweet basil”. Let me plant seeds of it in back of my house some day.

i131

Here came the Advertisement paper towel of my Japanese lesson. When I paid, I handed this to the lady. Although one of my concerns was that the charge would be expensive in such a night club like place, it was quite reasonable! Don’t worry about that, you guys. This is very good Thai restaurant. Actually people in Chad recommended me coming here. I also strongly recommend you. Go eat a lot of Thai food in “Thai Fight Gold”!

i132

またまた1,730円ぽっちで、宣伝ティッシュを 配ってください などとお願いする ずうずうしいおっさんです。グリーンカレーにのっているハーブは何ですかときいたら「ボラパー」というふうにおっしゃっていました。ネットで調べたらスウィートバジルだそうで、きっと種も売っていることでしょう。春が来たら、畑に植えてみたいです。

業務記録:Feb10-16, 2019

<個人的なログです>

■ 個人授業1:2時間:教材「できる日本語 初中級(黄色)」

教案作成は6時間ほど。学習者が興味をもっている分野の教材を前回宿題として渡し、今回読ませてみた。文法を教えてほしいと言うので、修飾語の基本的な所をおさえるようにしている。今回は、ナ形容詞の副詞的用法を練習してみた。

今回の本題は受身。個人的に興味があるのは、受身の学習において、能動文への書き換えにどれほどの意味があるか、ということ。受身文は、主語が何かを被ったことがわかれば良いし、法隆寺が○○年に建てられました、などという文に至っては動作主などは問題にならない。受身といえば能動文はどうか、などというのは中学時代に英語の受動態を習ったときのトラウマか、あるいは文法趣味の悪弊かもしれない。とは思ったものの、学習者に聞いてみると学校では実にさらりと扱ったようで、これは少し私から補足しなければならない、と思って今回集中的に取り組んだ。

ただし学習者は日本語の勉強で徹夜明けとのことで、かなりしんどい様子だった。直接受身、持ち主の受身、動作主はほぼどうでも良い「建物が建てられました」形式の受身について、例文2、3程度で説明した。文型導入も不完全、流ちょうさに至らない状態ではあるが、時間と体力的にそこまでだと感じた。最後にオマケで「れる・られる」の可能・尊敬・受身の区別をテストしてみたが、すこし難しいようだった。

学習者は疲れていたが、レッスン後は達成感のある表情だったので、こちらも救われた気分になった。

 

■ 個人授業2:2時間:教材「Genki I」13章

教案作成に3時間かけたが、想定した人が来なかったので、別の学習者を教えた。個人で教えている学習者ではないので、詳細は省略。

 

■ 個人授業3:1時間半:教材自作だが、みんなの日本語の練習Aに準拠

1回:教案作成は短いが、教材作成に5時間。これまでの内容の復習をさせるための問題を作り、させてみた。なるべく自分のことで発話できるように、文型導入では「わたしは」ばかりにしていたので、他の主語・述語も使う入れ替えをさせてみた。今まで「私は」だけだったのが急に「ミラーさんは」とか「サントスさんは」とか出てきたので、入れ替え練習も困難な様子であった。11文型の復習をしたかったが、3文型までで時間終了。文字指導は場所を表す漢字を数語を筆順も含めて指導、語彙導入は場所の名詞、時間帯の表現、3桁の数字の読み方など。語中の無声軟口蓋破裂音の破裂がすっぽ抜けて呼気だけになる現象は、毎回口腔断面図を書いて「ここで破裂を起こしなさい」と注意しているが、直らない。色々テストしたところ、舌が下がる母音の前後では、破裂のために舌を上げるのを省略しているようだ。毎回毎回注意しているので、「これをやったらまた注意される」と自分で予期できるようになってほしい。

2回:教案作成はほとんど時間をかけていない一方、「こそあ」導入のパワーポイント教材作成に7時間かけた。とはいえ、以前作ったものを改変しただけだったので、このくらいの時間で済んだ。パワポは挨拶の復習、お金と数字、語彙導入、文型確認、本題のこそあ導入、そして前回終わらなかった、できる日本語1-1の会話。正味79枚のスライドで57枚まで使った。本題の「こそあ」は、代名詞の「これそれあれ」、場所の「ここそこあそこ」、連体詞「このそのあの」の3種類を準備したが、前の2つまで、「このそのあの」はできなかった。その練習には「できる日本語」の別冊を利用した。「こそあ」の使い分けと、絵から対象物を判断する、いわば2つパラメーターのある演習だったため、学習者の負担が大きいと判断して、対象物の名前をPPT中にひらがなで示した。全部を見ていないのでわからないが、できる日本語の練習問題は答えを作文する際のパラメーターが多くて、学習者の負担が大きいのではないかと感じることがある。言語の習得の順序が音声から文字であるのと同様、授業でも音声を先に聞かせ、文字を後に示しているが、パワポで示す文字を見ていない。文字から音声を復元する練習も必要だと感じた。

i123

Shish kebab. Actually it was so good as a snack with Beer.

i124

Yes, this is my whole dinner tonight.

i125

Dipping the nan into curry…..do you want to eat? By the way, their curry has five ranks from hottest (5) to mild for kids(1). Last time I chose (2), so this time I tried (3). I tasted that rank three(3) is kinda best fit for me.

i126

I didn’t leave my Advertisement paper towel like this. I handed it to the person in the restaurant. Anyway it was so good. If you want to eat Indian&Nepali food, go and eat a lot in STAR!

i127

 

ビールを注文したら、塩っぱいクラッカーのようなものをつまみに出してくれました。某種料理店のように、アルコールにお通し代が加算されたりはしません。辛さ段階は前回の2からアップして3に挑戦。私にはちょうどいいくらいでした。次に4に進むかというと、あまり無理はせず、3で良いような気がします。

 

 

Dinner at “Korean Dining Lu(:)”

Hi, this is the website for “0yen! Japanese Lesson”. The classes are taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. Please check the latest information on this site. Hurry up, ‘cause the instructor’s schedule is becoming busy right now.

This is the first time that Korean Dining “Lu” appears on my blog. It is located at two blocks south of Mitsukoshi department store, and on the opposite side of Shimizu Food Center. Mitsukoshi Department store will soon be closed and I am afraid of giving you an inaccurate information. So please use the following numbers on Google maps.

Korean Dining 루Lu(:) on Twitter

I forgot to take a picture of the outside of the restaurant. So my photo starts from a cup of Makgeolli. When I ordered, I thought “Ah, it will be just a little of Makkolli in small glass”. But they gave me more Makkori in bigger cup than I expected.

i119

Anyway, it is always Sundubu jjigae in the new Korean restaurant.

i120

Clam without shells.

i121

The dining is very clean. Actually I thought the clean restaurant serves expensive meal. But I should say, it had been just my prejudice. The charges I paid was quite reasonable in this Korean restaurant “Korean Dining Lu(:)”.
