June Japanese class JNL Newsletter

Dear Parents of Grade 6 

We finally finished this academic year!
It was very hard to make a push to finish all the units from their kokugo textbook, even then I had a great time with HORIZON students!  
And I am glad that I can tell every student has improved their Kokugo ability.
Students will take a Japanese file home, please look over it and praise them the result of the Japanese learning of this year.

I would like to thank you for your support and cooperation for learning Japanese. 
And I would like to congratulate the Grade 6 students on their graduation from primary.

During the summer break, all the JNL students have Japanese homework.
Please check it with your children.
I hope everyone has a nice summer break.
                                                                                   Ms. Hayashi 

 Sometimes the topic of “Kanji no hiroba” appears in their kokugo-textbook for kanji practice, the Grade 6 students enjoyed looking at the picture, and then making sentences using some kanji. They tried to work hard to use all the kanji in the textbook. 
 Next topic was “Wasurerarenai kotoba”, learned about essay. And they reflected on their life up to now, wrote down their momorable word. 
 They also read the story “Umi no inoch”. It’s a story the boy grows into an independent fisherman. We have been trying to take the story seriously and thoughtfully to understand the hero’s feeling.  

 At the last, they tried to make a speech about unforgettable things or dreams in the topic of “Ima watashiwa Bokuwa”. Since it is the last year in their primary school, it was a good chance to think about it. Each student had been trying to make an effort to express frankly about their real feelings. If you have a chance, please listen to it at home.
