Input with Japanese? Open Keyboard Preferences and select Koteri and save. To change between English and Japanese typing input, go to where the flag is on their Mac and select the input option.

How do you encourage and support target language usage in your classroom? Here are some simple signs that I had displayed at the front of my classroom with accompanying easy-to-deconstruct supportive images.
Katana swords, plates, lanterns, cups and fans were popular choices to make. Students also had to create a Japanese-style gift tag and write which city they visited, what sightseeing place they visited and what their souvenir was.

Planning ahead for the new terms and semesters, how do you go about devising your units of work? This is a photo of some unit planning I did during a flight between Sydney and Adelaide. I was having one of those "brainwave/inspired moments" and needed to jot my ideas down immediately - hence on the back of my Jetstar boarding pass! Obviously, I collated these ideas and incorporated them into the Word doc version of my unit of work. APST 1, 2 & 5. #APST #teacherlife #Japanese
