Today's lesson: Japanese Culture

"Typhoon and Karuta Game"

I introduced to the children the Japanese culture by doing "Typhoon and Karuta game", through listening.

I grouped them into three with their respected group names. I asked them questions about the culture and they will say what kind of culture is it.

(By this game they can practice listening and speaking skills.)
