How to Introduce New Language  


We all learn language as babies first by listening. This is the natural way to introduce new material to your students, too. Do your best to provide some context to give extra clues to what the language might mean. Some of the activities below do that very well-

  • Storyboards/かみしばい- Read a story.
  • Model the language with another teacher or student in a skit or dialogue.
  • Play a short video.
  • Songs- Listen to, then sing a song.
  • Listen & Repeat- write these patterns on the blackboard, and play Listen & Repeat CROSSFIRE. Say each pattern in order, then the second time through, change one part: I play tennis. I play tennis, too. I don’t play tennis. Do you play tennis? Yes, I do. No, I don’t.
  • Listen and Respond- Students respond by pointing to a picture, touching an object, raising hands or standing, etc., to indicate comprehension.
  • Translation- Ask all students to tell the meaning in Japanese, then ask for single volunteers to translate
  • Don’t have a teaching partner to do dialogues with? Try using a pair of puppets. Or wear different hats to represent different characters.
