Responses onto the BBS:
– Attendance check by a student his/herself: 26. Of the 26, one student was actually recorded as completely absent from the class. One came late and stayed for 32 minutes.
– 1st Quiz: 23 students responded. The quiz was to find the best conditional conjunctive particle for a sentence stating an incident that had happened already. Some of the best students answered one that was not the best, and then many students followed it. At the point that two thirds students had input the same answer, one student typed the best one. And then remaining one third students input the (new) best answer.
– 2nd Quiz: 18 students responded. The question was to choose the better conditional conjunctive particle for a sentence of invitation. This is to make the students know realize that conjunctive particle “-to” cannot be used for will, suggestion, command, and so on.
– 3rd Quiz: 23 students responded. The question was to choose one nature which is applicable only to “-nara”. “Nara” cannot be used if the condition phrase is quite certain.
– Attendance check at the end: 20 students responded. This was to choose the best explanations for four conditional conjunctive particles “-to”, “-ba”, “-tara”, and “-nara”.

Issues and Problems:
A lot of grammatical thing to teach. It is too much for conversation class.
