Online Teaching for Class 1837 (Conversation) on Apr.3, 2020

Date: April 3rd on Friday, 2020 from 13:40 to 15:10 (14:40 – 16:10 in JST)

Course: Japanese Conversation 4

Used app: Streaming on DingTalk, Presentation by Powerpoint with 73 slides

Numbers of Students: 28

Fully attendant for 90min : 16,    Completely Absent : 3,

Shorter signing-in: 78, 68, 65, 37, 32, 31, 12 minutes, and 1 minute. The shortest was 18 seconds.

Responses onto the BBS:

– Attendance check by a student his/herself: 25, but one student was recorded as completely absent

– 1st Quiz: Only 12 students responded. The quiz was to make a short sentences using guessing “-souda”. I wanted students to use adjectives for emotion, but some used verbs.

– 2nd Quiz: 17 students responded. The quiz was to ask how to pronounce body temperature. The unit for first decimal uses “bu” which is usually pronounced “fun”.

– Attendance check at the end: 18


– Review of quiz in last class putting emphasis on similarity of the changes of auxiliary verb “-youda” and Na-adjectives. Limitation of guessing “-souda” in time sequence was also explained.

– Feedback for the Homework : The students sent me drafts of conversation between a doctor and a patients. I made comments about speech style between doctor and patients. Additional comments on mother tongue interference through Kanji.

– The main teaching was about guessing “Youda”

– Listening to conversation that contains guessing “-youda” and hearsay “souda”.

Homework Assignment: Completing five sentences conversation using guessing “youda”

Issues and Problems:

This is a conversation class. So my concern is how far I should or may dive into grammatical things about auxiliary verbs “youda”,”souda”, ‘rashii’, and so on..
