GenkiJACS outlesson

Posted on August 21, 2014 | genkijacs

One of the things that sets our Japanese language school apart from others is that we teach students how to apply what they've learned in class, outside school in real-world situations.

Yesterday, we followed some of our students from Fukuoka school on one of their conversational class outlessons. Students had learned how to ask for directions in Japanese in class, and were set loose on the streets of Tenjin to test their knowledge!

The first part of the challenge was asking for directions.

And the next part was listening to the actual directions given, and seeing if they could understand what to do, and where to go!

After asking the route, students then drew it out on a map of Tenjin, before comparing notes to see if they all understood the directions clearly.

Big success! All of our students got where they were supposed to go, without getting lost!
Good job, guys!
