Day 20/35 – Tuesday July 22nd
Back from the long weekend, and into intensive classes. Listening comprehension is really accelerating now, which is one of the many reasons why for this program the students are in homestays. Vocabulary building is continuing well, and increasing the speaking skills. The ability to answer questions and hold an evolving conversation entirely in Japanese. Not bad at all for 3 weeks.
Lunch was again in a different location (near the main rail station). Good healthy food, and devoured. The sashimi was an unexpected bonus.
In the kanji clinic, another unit was covered. The students are increasing able to recognize the radicals and deconstruct the characters.
