G12 Japanese A newsletter


Dear G12 Parents,
Japanese A news letter of December
By Mr. Higa


The Japanese A students studied the topics below until the end of Autumn term.

"Eiketsu no Asa"
"Yu-zuru"
They did individual oral commentary. The activity is one of IB assessment. They made it great because they practiced hard.
Also, they created own story according to the topics. Then they presented their story.

In this term, all parts of Japanese A (SL) had been done.
So we will start to practice for the biggest IB exam.
During winter break, they have a homework which is to write "Book review".
They can write it about any Japanese books but not comic one.
I am looking forward to getting together with their great memories of break.

I appreciate you for the big cooperation and we could make this term great.
If you have any concerns or question, please feel free to ask me.
来年もよろしくお願いいたします。
