Students asked many questions to Thomas because he would go to the interview of JET program on this weekend.
3. Watching a movie trailer (Okuribito)
From next week, students will start to plan it in detail. This movie trailer would be helpful for them to come up with something good.
How did you pick this theme or topic?
It is time to plan the project and a special event on April.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
How did students react?
Students seemed to like planning an event. They had wonderful ideas for all events and project! That was awesome!!
Did they engage with each other and you?

Please attach a copy.
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Why or why not?
The project is requirement for the conversation class. As for question and answer, I hope it was helpful for Thomas to take an interview in Japanese. I think it was good for other students to practice asking and answering non-prompt questions.
