Japanese Tutoring at Bard
Tutorial is usually a small group session. Students review a lesson by writing worksheets, listening to dialogues and the latest news, speaking with classmates and playing gestures games and card games. In particular, I focus on conversation to learn the Japanese language in real life situations. Also, I introduce a variety of topics every week and it is about not only traditional culture but also pop culture, social issues, trends, and so on by using a book, newspaper, web resource, or YouTube. After each tutorial, students get a Japanese sticker and they can get an unofficial certificate of complete tutorial at the end of the semester!
