Class theme/topics discussed: Telephoning/role play
Goal of the class: directing the conversation, hesitating, expressing uncertainty.
Structure of the class (unless you attach your lesson plan below):
5-10 minutes ice break talks —–we talked about our plans for the coming weekend
15 minutes——let’s sing Japanese song, learned about vocabularies and the meaning of the song.
35 minutes——provided useful expressions and the situations written in a piece of paper. Less complicated situations for intermediate students, more complicated situations for advanced students. Paired into 2 people, then one person and the other person act the telephone conversations in front of everyone.
What technology, media or props did you use? (satellite tv, internet resources, playmobiles, etc.)
None. Just some handouts.
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
YES: Students loved creating the conversations and without assistance, they kept talking.
How could this class be improved/ modified?
For the Let’s sing a Japanese song, I used old song from 50s, they disliked the old song (even though I thought they will like it, because it is so beautiful song!) I will use more up to date song.
