A two or three minute clip taken inside the classroom of a dialogue from Expressways 2. Working on R and L and a Japanese English words like AISLE not included in this clip. What we call a church aisle in English is called a Virgin Road. This excerpt was omitted from the clip here, but we will soon cover more Japanese English terms in later episodes. On another note, what we think are easy words like aisle may tend to be more difficult than what we may imagine them to be. It is good to give the students time to absorb the material after the role-play reading and then have them remember it by mote. In this way, the Expressways or even the Side by Side series (by Bill Bliss and Steve Molensky) are much more challenging and entertaining to role play as students struggle through what would otherwise be an easy task. When done correctly, they are challenging textbooks and students of various levels can work out the same book, class and time-slot. Classes can be fun and challenging at seemingly all levels and this make for less stress or headache on behalf of the teacher.
If you are a born-again believer and would like to serve at a church in Japan as a Bible and English teacher, please register for an online meeting (go to www.haert-for-Japan.com). One does not have to have experience teaching English, but should have a willing heart to serve others and welcome new experiences.
