Responses onto the BBS:

– Attendance check by a student his/herself : 25 students input “Shusseki” onto BBS. However one student was recorded by the system as completely absent and did not leave any activities for quiz. Therefore the student was judged as absent.

– 1st Quiz: 20 students responded. The quiz was to choose right combinations of particles and causative forms of verbs.

– 2nd Quiz: 20 students responded. Before the quiz, procedures of cooking curry was explained in Japanese. The quiz was to choose the order of three major steps in cooking curry. This quiz was not just for fun, but to measure how the students understand the abstract idea and to make this a kind of introduction of a construction “V1-ta To’orini, V2-te kudasai”

– Attendance check at the end: 20 students responded. Students were asked to choose the right sentence from the five that were to be the construction “V1-ta To’orini, V2-te kudasai”.


– Pronunciation of the small “-tsu”: Small “-tsu” should be silent of length of 1 mora when it is before a explosive sound. 1 mora length of silence was shown using Figure1 below. When a small “-tsu” is before friction sound, it becomes 1 mora length of friction sound. 

– Review of causative sentences with comparisons between causative sentences of intransitive verbs and of transitive verbs.

– Exercises of conversations using causative sentences whose actions were expressed by intransitive verbs.

 – Introduction and exercise of a construction  “V1-ta To’orini, V2-te kudasai”.
