LDK #4-Build New Knowledge on a Basis of Known Things  


When introducing or teaching new knowledge and ideas, give students a foundation upon which to build.
Always having the Japanese translation of anything written in English is one way of doing this.  Other ways to do this are:

  • using similar usage (using ‘will’ is very similar in usage to the use of ‘can’) or similar sounds (book -> cook);
  • words they already know (especially English words commonly used in Japanese); and
  • something they can or have experienced (‘How many pens do you have?’ or, eating in a restaurant).
