Homework for Next Benkyou Kai

I think we left it at this:

If you're up to the challenge, write one simple sentence each for the words on the katakana vocabulary list (begins with toilet on one side and cake on the reverse).  You may recycle the little sentences I wrote on the page with the dictionary entries at the top--just switch out words.  Rene wrote the one about the rain!  The sentences are broken at the particle (が、に、は).  Oooo, I just remembered MY task--to find out which verb you use for wearing shirts and belts.  So (着る) きます for shirts, and (締める) しめます for belts.  By the way, Jim Breen says サンチュール (from the French "ceinture") is the more correct word for belt, unless you're talking about a seat belt.  But I'd bet べルト is used nowadays anyhow.  Here's a webpage for wearing words-->  http://www.guidetojap...­

If that sentence task seems too daunting, then your assignment is to practice writing on those grids that follow the vocab sheets.  Each kana character has 2 practice spaces, so do those.  Then copy the vocabulary words into the 3-character empty spaces at the bottom.  All the vocabulary is 3 characters or less, so they should fit.

Of course, if this will be your first meeting you have NO homework yet.  \ (^_^) /  Yay!

See you soon!

At the next meeting, I plan to have us read some dialogues aloud. The first one is the Genki introduction I handed out last time. I figured that wouldn't keep us busy too long, so I found a couple more good ones online. The first and second dialogues at Japanese.About.com. So...it would be a good idea, during these two weeks, to read through the lessons that correspond to those dialogues, ね?

http://japanese.about...­ (Party Introduction: 6 parts)
http://japanese.about...­ (At the Post Office: 8 parts)

If you're having trouble getting to all the "parts" of the lessons (sometimes the Next Lesson link is hard to find), naviagte through their archive list at http://japanese.about...­.

There's a lot of information in these two chapters, so don't get bogged down by the details. We don't have to understand everything right away as we're reading it. But, the more you know beforehand, the more we can put in/get out of our meeting. Perhaps you would be ready to switch out some words to personalize the conversations or answer questions about them in Japanese.

Also have the Chapter 1 dialog from two editions of Japanese for Busy People. It's all about greetings & introductions next time. We'll listen to the CD tracks from the books and then try it out among ourselves. C'mon, it'll be fun...!
