Responses onto the BBS:

– Attendance check by a student his/herself: 24. Two students came late.

– 1st Quiz: 19 students responded. The quiz was to find a sentence using the conditional conjunctive particle “-to” from four sentences.

– 2nd Quiz: 21 students responded. The question was to check the students’ understanding for limitation of use of the conditional conjunctive particle “-to”.

– 3rd Quiz: 23 students responded. The question was to make a student complete a conversation by filling the blanks correctly with understanding the difference between “-temo” and “-to”.

– Attendance check at the end: 19 students responded. Like the quiz No.3, this was also to ask proper uses of conditional conjunctive particles “-temo” and “-to”.


– Conditional conjunctive particle “-to”, especially for  its limitation for the latter clause. Expressions like intention, invitation, and/or command are not used in the latter clause when the preceding clause uses “-to,”.

– Introduction of another conditional conjunctive particle “-tara,” including comparison with other conditional conjunctive particles “-to,”, “-ba,”, and “-nara,”.

Homework Assignment:

– Nothing to submit to the teacher this time. The students were asked to evaluate a short test for the section 12 by him/herself.

– Six students were asked to send a voice mail by speaking the script of conversation of two part time job workers.

Issues and Problems:

A lot of rote exercise (mechanical trainings) for sentences with “-to” and “-tara”. The students must have been tired and fed up with.
