Responses onto the BBS:
– Attendance check by a student his/herself: 24. One of 24 was recorded as completely absent by the system. Another student came late.
– 1st Quiz: 22 students responded. The quiz was to find a right combination for particles “-nara” and “-tara” in the sentence to stop drunken drive.
– 2nd Quiz: 22 students responded. The question was to select one of “-to”, “-ba”, “-tara”, and “-nara” for a sentence about one-time event in the past.
– 3rd Quiz: 21 students responded. The question was to find an erroneous sentence that was a suggestion but using the conditional conjunctive particle “-to”.
– Attendance check at the end: 18 students responded. Students had to choose one of four conditional conjunctive particles for a poem written by Shuntaro Tanikawa.
– Some important expressions not only conditional conjunctive particles but also auxiliary verb “-youda” that appeared in the conversation between Park-san and Chin-san.
– Practical applications of conditional conjunctive particle “-tara” in conversations such as “V-tara doudesuka” using the textbook.
– Short test was assigned as a homework that was about conditional conjunctive particles “-to” and “-tara”.
– Six students were asked to send a voice mail by speaking the script of conversation of two part time job workers; Park-san and Chin-san.
Issues and Problems:
I have to explain a lot about how to differentiate usages of four conditional conjunctive particles because the textbook is dealing with those four almost at the same time. I don’t think it is good because the students must be confused.
