Hi Friends! Book 2 Lesson 4

                                      TURN RIGHT 

The aim of this lesson is directions.  [All the other stuff in the first paragraph is fluff.]


Due to the increase in foreign tourists to Japan and Japanese tourists abroad the language covered in this lesson is quite useful in everyday life.  Keep in mind, in real life there is the possibility a map might be present to make communication easier or a person actually walking you to the desired location. 


Additionally, the students will learn the names of various buildings in their community: park, school, bookstore, etc.  Using things the students see in everyday life can strengthen the class' relevance to them.  Also, studying words students might think are English words (combini, depaato, etc.) can prove quite educational and beneficial to their pronunciation of these words.
