Students said "what is this ?"in Japanese.
Teacher let the students to say by English.

development
Students made some groups.
They were divided 4 spaces,and wached 4 pictures individually.
They went back their groups and explained the pictures to their group members .
At that time, they used "what's this?".

review
It was no time to review the class.
But I think they can acquired the phrase.
Because they can use "what's this?"in their groups.

Mr.M told us the way of group works.
Teacher used that way in the development stage.
I realized it is the best way of the group works by students's attitude.

My least valuable language learning activity has been writing poety.

Story of How I learned English

I've studied English since I enterd junior high school.
I longed for my English teacher.
Thanks to her instruction , I came to like English.
I wanted to be a English teacher like her.

There are 2 way to learning English .

First, I memorize some English words on the nights before I go to bed.
In the morning, I review the words.
It is very simple way, but I can memorize by this way.

Second, I pronounce the word according to the phonetic notation.
It is important.
Because if I could pronounce words collectly, Ididn't misspel words.

Of corse I memorize words by writing.
But I use those ways frequently.

And I also studying by English school.
I've attended the English school since I was first grade in university.
I've studied English conversation in there.
