Students: Seated in pairs with desks facing each other. An eraser is in the center of the two desks. Students first listen & repeat the keyword. Then, all students ask, ‘What’s this?’. Listen to ALT: If ALT says the keyword, each student tries to take the eraser. BUT, if the ALT says a different word, students only repeat the word. Winners get 1 point each round, or -1 for misses.
HRT: Show a flashcard to students & ALT-the keyword. Say, ‘Repeat after Mr. Elton.’ (ALT: ‘Banana’. Students: ‘Banana.’) Then say- ‘OK. Ready?!’
ALT: First say the keyword for students to repeat. Then, say the keyword or a different, perhaps similarly sounding word after students ask ‘What’s this?’.
(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 did we talk about today?
-Were there some words you already knew?
-Did you learn any new words?
-What was fun or interesting?
-What was difficult?
-How can we make that easier next time?
Students: ‘Thank you! Good bye!’
Teachers: ‘You’re welcome! Good bye!’
Discussion- Loanwords- gairaigo in Japanese- Words from other languages are very common in both English and in Japanese. Food words especially are very common. Some non-English words in Japanese include: arbaito & karuta (German); randoseru (the students' school backpack) & hochikisu (stapler) (Dutch/oranda-go); castela & zook (shoes) (Portuguese); kimuchi (kimchee) (Korean).
Intonation is also very important. Sometimes just a misplaced accent will make the word difficult or impossible to understand. Bridge (ha-SHI) and chopsticks (HA-shi) (in Japanese) are examples. Try saying 'BA-na-na' or 'ba-NA-na' or 'ba-na-NA'. Look for examples in the pronunciation of the 18 words from the Eigo Noto during activities (page 36-7), too- there are many examples there.
