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.


道案内をしよう

本単元では、方向を表す表現を使って、道案内を体験する。道案内という活動は、実際には言葉だけで行うのは非情に難しいものである。情報のキャップ(尋ねる側と答える側の情報の差)があるが、目的地へ行きたいという必要性は非情に高いものなので、積極的に児童を参加させることが可能である。

 

また、日本を訪れる外国人数の増加や外国へ行く日本人数の増加は、実生活においても道を説明したり、尋ねたりと言う機会の増加を意味してる。実生活では、地図上で「ここです」と説明したり、実際に連れって行ったりという行為で、道案内が可能であり、方向を表す表現right/leftなどは、非常に役立つ表現である。

 

ここでは、道案内をするにあたり、方向を表す表現に加え、児童の実生活に密着した建物の名前についても体験的に学習する。建物を表す表現は日常生活と深くかかわっているため、毎日の生活の中で自然に繰り返し触れることができる題材としても有効である。また、コンビニエンス・ストアやデパートなど、かたかなになっているものを扱うことで、英語と日本語の発音やアクセントとの違いに気付かせることも可能である。
