This is a fifty dollar course that you can take in Tokyo, Osaka, or Kyoto. It is only three hours long and the three hundred dollar courses are two day events which are the same thing but just more exposure. Here we learned 15 games teaching English using cards, memory, creativity, and our Japanese. This is for local teachers so if you do not understand Japanese then there is no need to download this podcast. Photos are out of sync but for every click in the audio that is where the next photo should have been placed. No time was spent in editing but if you want to learn more please buy the book "BB CARD-O" ISBN 9784862231598 for about twenty-five dollars in Japan (Japanese Only). Each student must buy their own set of cards which also runs about fifty each. It is an investment well worth the rewards as children eagerly learn how to win fun card games while speaking out in complete sentences and using substitution phrases in the more advanced levels. Players of all ages can enjoy these games and teachers are welcome to alter the games to make them even more creative or challenging. It's estimated that more than one hundred widely varying games can be taught in six days of training or just buy the book (２５００円) to save yourself hundreds of dollars... but the training is still worth every penny!
