Time flies! Christmas and new year break finished and now we are going to start new term next week! We have the same number of levels, plus new beginners class.

Also, we have good number of students for each class. We are looking forward to starting new term next week!

The 2nd week of our courses finished. We have all the classes on, plus a new beginners course. We are very grateful to new students and of course to our loyal students to join our courses!

It's almost time to start our new courses. They will start on 14th and 15th October. We have a good number for beginners class already. There are still places in other classes. I hope we can run all 6 levels! Come and join everyone! It's gonna be fun!
Japanese courses Summer term 2014!
(created: 1/5/2014 at 22.06)

Our summer term started last week. We have a couple of new students. There are fewer students in each class, but we decided to run all of them, because we would like to complete one year courses. The 'Beginner Intensive' course is in their 2nd half of course. They seems to be very sociable. We were invited to have drink after the lest class last term. They go to have drink after the class every week. It sound very nice! We are very happy to hear they are enjoying learning at the class as well as socialising after the class.
2nd week of Japanese courses Spring term 2014!
(created: 26/1/2014 at 17.43)

There were some changes for students in each classes. Some joined one class and found the level is not quite right, so changed to the other class. It is possible because we have classes of different levels. Not many places would offer this much. It seems now they are settled in where they are now. The A1-1 class became even more fun with learning some verbs. There are more to come.

Happy new year! Akemashite omedeto gozaimasu. Kotoshimo yoroshiku onegaishimasu.
We started new term one week later than the dates we advertised previously, as we found it is too soon after the new year. We have more people would like to join our courses. There is a brand new beginners class this term. Last year January, we had quite a few people would like to start beginners class and most of them were complete beginners. Some joined existing A1-1 class which is the 2nd term of beginners class, and stayed there, but some people found too hard as it wasn't for complete beginners - the fellow students learned 10 weeks in the previous term. I thought there would be many people who want to start learning something as for new years resolution, so we decided to offer a brand new 'Beginners Intensive' course. It is two terms, 20 weeks course. It si very popular. There are 9 people who signed up for this course. We also have some new students for all of the classes. There are 7 classes, 42 students all together. Another successful term started! Thank you everyone to join us!!!

Finally the last week of this term. As usual, we made 'nengajo- new year post card' in the A1-1 Beginners class. 2014 is the year of horse, so I brought some illustrations of horses. One of the students drew a horse by himself, and it was really good. he sent us cards as well. Happy new year!

It was a cold evening again. We were very glad to see our students who came out from warm and cozy home! Thanks a lot! We only have one more lesson after this, then have Christmas/New year break. I hope everyone will come back in January! We had a nice meals out Saturday and Sunday with students. Unfortunately, I couldn't go the 2nd meal as I was ill. What a shame! We will have another meals next term as well! Also, we will have Karaoke night with one of our classes. Looking forward to it!

At Yuko's class, she does something called 'show and tell'. She gives a topic and the students will bring something to do with the topic and 'show and tell'! This week topic was 'souvenir' and one of her students brought biscuits from Bath as souvenir for whole class! He gave me too. It was so nice of him. They were delicious! Thank you!!
3rd week of Japanese courses Autumn term 2013!
(created: 27/10/2013 at 23.39)

There was a little change this week. As Yuko is busy with her family commitment, I am going to teach the beginners class from now on. It was good fun to teach the class. We covered vocab of everyday items and asked each other 'what is this?' so that they can answer the name of the item. Working in pair using cards. It worked quite well. It is always fun to do that activity.
We are thinking of starting a new beginners class from January, as it is popular. We've already heard some people are interested. Hopefully more people will beinterested and we will be able to run the course next term.

We have even more new students! The beginners class and the post-beginners class are nearly full. We have smaller classes for the upper levels, so we hope we have more new students for those classes. We might have new beginners course from January for two terms, as it is very popular. We will update the course dates shortly.

Our 3rd year of Japanese courses started! We have 6 levels and over 40 students all together! There are lots of new students in all classes, also the students who came last year and the year before. It's nice to see them again. We might have a few more students this week and I guess it will settle down.. Thank you everyone who signed up for our courses! I hope you will enjoy learning Japanese with us all year!

We read about an article about 'miracle pine tree' in Tohoku where the huge tsunami hit after the earthquake. It was an amazing story. Unfortunately the pine died after a while because of the sea water, but preserved and stay there as a symbol.

At the B2 class, we revised 'keigo/Formal speach' and had speaking practice. Everyone find keigo is difficult. But don't worry! It's difficult for us-naticve Japanese speaker as well! We have our own keigo in Osaka-ben. We put 'haru' at the end of every verbs; such as 'tabeharu', 'ikiharu', 'iiharu' etc.. It sounds soft and nice. I like it very much. It might sound more familier that real formal keigo.

It was nice to come back to the classes after one week off for the half term. It's always nice to see our studnets. We nearly finish the textbook 'Japanese for Busy People 2' at A2-2 class. We are looking forward to starting the book 3, but not until next term. Still a few things to do from book2..

At the Advanced class, we were talking about any news they heard. I talked about the tornato in the US, and wrote it in Kanji '竜巻' then I thought it looked like a kind of sushi. It can't be right.. but I checked afterwards, and it was right. Silly me...
4th week of Japanese courses!
(created: 20/5/2013 at 22.42)

We are doing conditional forms in A2-2 class. There are a few conditionals in Japanese. When I think about it, why there are so many of them? I don't know. Some are the same usage, but some are not. You need to know which one to use.. It's tricky. I always revise the explanations of thoses conditionals before teach otherwise I will confuse my students!

We had a potential new student came to our class this week. More and more people find us by seaching these days! It's great! Unfortunately he cannot joing us this term but hopefully next term from October. New timetable will be up on the website shortly.

This week at Advanced class, we did 'Janken' and it was fun! We say ' Saisho wa goo, jankenpon - First the stone - jankenpon' to get the timing. It wasn't like that when I was a kid.

We were so excited to see one of our students has got 'randoresu' leather backpack for primary school students. We used to have one - everyone did, and everyone does even now. It was so cute. When we were kids, the colours of 'randoseru' are black and red, but these days there are so many colours to choose from. I wanted blue if there was one.

Finally summer term started last week. We have 4 classes this term as well. There are some new students. It is always great to meet new people! In my B2 class, there are two new students, one is new, but old.. I taught him in the past at the University of Bristol. It's nice to see him again. Another one is husband of my friend, so I met him a couple times before. My friend said he can speak Nagoya-ben..

There was a surprise at the end of B2 class last week. A month ago, we brought some chocolate to share with students for the St Valantine's day and explained what it is like in Japan. Girls give chocolates to boys and one month later on 14th March, it is boys' turn to give back something to girls. It is called White day. Last Wednesday was 13th March, one day before White day, and B2 students gave us a couple boxes of chocolate! It was touching. Oh, they are so nice people! Thank you guys!

At B2 class, we have some Kanji(Chinese characters) almost every week. This week, I introduced 'shitsu' for room. The other reading is 'muro'. There was an period called 'Muromachi Jidai', one of the student mentioned. Then the other student asked me what is the origin of the word of 'Muromachi Jidai and if it is related to a name of a place like 'Kamakura Jidai' and 'Edo Jidai'. I checked it when I got home, and found it. It is related to a name of a place in Kyoto, a street called 'Muromachi doori'. It is a small street.

Last Sunday, A2-2 class plus one B2 student went to Karaoke! It was a karaoke room just for us just like in Japan. When we got there we were told that we could stay up to 4 hours, and I though ' I don't think we will stay that long..' but we did!! All of us enjoyed so much, we couldn't leave! It took us for a while to figure out how to find songs we want to sing because the karaoke machine is Chinese one. There were Japanese songs as well. We all sang 'Ue o muite aruko/Sukiyaki song' as we know it so well! It was a great night out. We should do it again!

We had full class for B2 this week. Last 3 weeks, one or two students were not there because of their work. It was nice to see everyone! We practised the sentences with 'sae' and made some sentences. Some are like 'I'm happy if there is music', 'I'm happy if there are beautiful mountains', etc.. In A2-2 class, we did lots of grammar work, but not much of speaking. We will do more speaking next session!
3rd week of Japanese courses Spring term 2013!

We sang another song at A2-2 class. The song is well known in many countries. In Japanese it's called 'Shiawase nara te o tatako' and there are lots of volitional forms in the lyrics. I English 'If you're happy and you know it'. I searched the song before coming to the class, and found that this song is from Spain. There days you can find it lots of things online. It is amazing! We enjoyed singing, so this term we will have karaoke night!

It was snowing!! Thank you very much for all our students who came to the classes in this weather! We are very grateful.
In A2-2 class, we just did volitional form. In this lesson we sang 'Sukiyaki Song - Ue o muite aruko'.
This song was big hit in the USA in 60s. I don't know why they named it 'Sukiyaki Song'. Was sukiyaki popular Japanese food then? It is a good song which sung by Sakamoto Kyu. The lyrics is surprisingly sad for this tune, but beautiful.

We had the 1st week of the 2nd term(I don't know why they call it Spring term although it is still winter!). We have 4 classes this term. There are 9 new students in A1-1 class! Unfortunately we had to cancel A1-2 class because we didn't have enough number to run the course. However, all other classes most of students signed up and we enjoyed teaching the classes again!
New Year Party on 8th January 'Shinnenkai'

We had a new year party on 8th January at the bar in Polish Club. It was an American style supper or potluck party(Does it make sense to you? I learned it when I was attending English class in Japan and we learned mainly American English). There were about 20 of our students came and we had a lot of food!! Thank you very much! We also prepared 'temaki-zushi' hand rolled sushi and 'okonomiyaki' vegetable pancake. We were glad that they enjoyed our food. It was a nice evening. We should do every year!

One of my ex-students lives in Tokyo now. He has been there for 5 years. He came back to UK for Christmas and we met up for lunch. He enjoys life in Japan very much. When I went back to Osaka in summer 4 years ago, he came to Osaka and I showed him around. We went to karaoke with my friends. They have the same taste in music so they became friends as well. It was really nice to catch up with people who I used to teach.

(created: 13/12/2012 at 0.11)

It was the last class before Christmas and new year break. We usually have 'nengajo' new year post cards. We have our students exchange their addresses and write one card to the other student. They don't know who you will receive from. It is a surprise in the new year. Next year is the year of snake. I brought nice pictures of snake. It was really fun thing to do, and it is a custom. You can write message to your fellow student. I have their works now, waiting to send just before the new year, because it shouldn't arrive until January. So I can see all their work and they are fantastic!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

I'm a bit behind.. last week was 9th week, and this week is the final week for this term! It's gone really quick. We had a meal on Sunday at a Japanese restaurant. 13 people from my 3 classes came, and we had a really nice time - good conversation with some students. I arrived about 10mins late, because I came back from walking in Wales. When I arrived, everyone were there already! Thank you for coming everyone!
'me kara uroko'
(created: 6/12/2012 at 23.56)

I checked about the idiom 'me kara uroko ga ochiru' and I found that it came from Bible!! No wonder there is the same phrase in English and also in German! In English 'the scale fall from one's eye' Well, it was really 'me kara uroko'!
8th week of Japanese courses!

We talked about idioms in the advanced class again. Surprised to know there are the same idiom in English and in German! It is 'me kara uroko ga ochiru' meaning 'scale falls from my eye'. It might have been translated long ago, or just coinsidence. I have to research it!
Japanese taster session for year 8 students.
(created: 24/11/2012 at 23.03)

We were invited to give Japanese taster session at an event 'Year 8 Modertn foreign Language Subject Enrichment day' at UWE, which was organised by the organisation Routes into Languages South West. There were supposed to be 56 students from 4 schools around Bristol. Unfortunately, one school had to give up coming due to the heavy rain that morning! I did two taster sessions. There were French, Spanish and German taster sessions as well. This is the first time for them to have Japanese. Hopefully we will be invited next year again, and some studnets might be interested in learning Japanese in the future. There was a boy who can count 1 to 10, and he learns karate. It was nice to meet those kids. In addtition to that I saw a person who I know but lost in touch long time ago! She is a Spanish teacher and we used to teach at the same places; City of bristol College and UWE. We exchange our number, so that we can get together! The event was a good fun!

We had te-form again this week at A1-2 class. There were a few people who couldn't make it previous week, so I explained all over it again. I hope it was useful. We will carry on doing te-form next few chapters, and will be very useful! At the advanced class, we had a reading material about Japanese idioms using parts of body. We have so many of them and it is quite funny. I live idioms! It is time for my students to introduce to me their idioms and explain in Japanese! Fun!!
Meal with former A1-2 class
(created: 18/11/2012 at 22.44)

I had a lovely time at a Japanese restaurant on Saturday with some of former A1-2 class. They are in A2-2 class at the moment, but I'm not teaching the class, so I see them briefly after my class every week. One of former A1-2 students hasn't signed up for this term, but I wanted to get together with her and other class mates, so I organised the meal. Unfortunately, she couldn't make it! What a shame. I will organise get-together again. We had a great time! Good food!

(created: 18/11/2012 at 22.41)

We started te-form of verbs at A1-2 class. It is a big step of grammar. I hope I didn't scare off my studnets by teaching it. It is very useful piece of grammar, whcih you can use a lot of useful expressions. Japanese is becoming more interesting with this!

I can't believe it's aready half way through of this term. Time flies! It has been enjoyable weeks. We are thinking of 'Bonenkai' end of the year party or meal, but the end of the year it is always busy everywhere, so we might think of 'Shinnenkai' New year party or meal instead. Let's discuss about it!

Last Tuesday there was monthly meeting of Bristol Japan Club at Obento. I used to miss that but this academic year, I only teach until 8.00 on Tuesdays and I can go! Two of my students came with me. It was nice. There were quite few people, but unfortunately with the long table, I didn't have chance to talk to the people I met there for the first time. There were five of my students there! Hopefully more Japanese people will be there next meeting so that my students have chance to talk in Japanese!

We have a few students moving around the classes this week. Two joined Post beginners class from Beginners class as they have learned some Japanese in the past. They were coping very well and I think they are OK in this level. One person originally signed up for B1-Post Intermediate class joined Advanced class as we had to cancel the B1 class. He did very well with the fellow students. We had a new students in the Advanced class as well. She is from Germany. We have one person from Hungary in the class too - very international!

We really enjoyed teaching you! We sang a Japanese kids' song in A1-2 class. It is called 'inu no omawarisan' Dog police man found a kitten who got lost and kept on crying. It is a cute song. One of the students Gaby is inspired to make an animation. I am looking forward to seeing it! Gaby, ganbatte!

Time flies! There are only 2 weeks left this term. The students of Post-beginner's class sang a song of words of body parts as we just covered those words in Japanese. They sang in English, and asked me if there was a song like that in Japanese. Unfortunately, I don't know anything like that. Maybe we can translate and make Japanese version of the song. Teach me the song please!

After a week off for the half term, went back to the classes. It was nice to see all our students again! I went downstaires afterwards for joining Bristol Japan Club meeting. There were quite a few people tonight. Many of them were Japanese. I enjoyed talking to some people who I met for the first time. I hope they will come again next month! See you there!

This week we had a fun activitiy in the Post-beginner's class. Everyone introduced themselves but as a third person. In this way they can use 'jozu desu' for what they are good at. In the advanced class, we were talking about different customs when people greet each other. Do you kiss or not? If you do how many times? In Japan we don't kiss nor hug..

Has everyone seen the Olympic Torch? When I was walking to Polish Club for my Japanese classes this Tuesday, there were full of people! I wondered how many of my students would turn up. However, my loyal students came to learn Japanese! Thanks a lot!

We had a good laugh at the A1-2 class this week. We had practice to ask each other like: 'Do you know Mr so and so? If so, do you know his address?' The students made up questions with the famous names: it went like this - 'Do you know Mozart?' 'Yes, I do' 'If so, do you know his address?' 'Yes I do'.. I couldn't help interrupting by saying, 'I know it too! I went his house two years ago!'

We have another new student! Welcome!! New students are always welcome! In the advanced class, all of the students have lived in Japan from 1year to 3years. This week they shared their experiences when they were in Japan. It was really fun to listen to them!
