Students- Choose a job and make a sentence about yourself. Play Janken with a partner. Goal is to find 2 students who want to do the same job as you.

Discussion- Ideas that jobs are different in different cultures. Waitress- In Japan, many people think this is an easy job. But in the USA, people think this is not an easy job- waitresses must carry heavy things, and serve people quickly. Why is there such a difference? Maybe because in the US, waitresses get tips;in Japan, they don’t.  Teacher- Teachers in Japan do many things that teachers in the USA don’t. Teachers in the US can go home at 3 or 4:00, and have 2-3
months of summer vacation. But US teachers might get paid less than Japanese teachers.

Wrap-Up- 3 minutes
(Present common mistakes to the whole class. Write the mistaken point on the blackboard, and ask if anybody can see the mistake.) Or-
HRT to Students, in Japanese:

-What was fun or interesting?
-What was difficult?
-How can we make that easier next time?

Closing- 1 minute
