Fuyu Yasumi 2010: An ALT Goes to New York

My friend and fellow JET (altho I guess I'm now a former-JET) made this excellent video chronicling his trip home last year for winter vacation. He used it in his classes in Japan with his Jr High students.

Good example of how you can bring real world information and practical knowledge into the classroom and make your lessons more interesting for your students.

Well done Eric!

男らしい日本語って: Manly Japanese

Great video by a fellow J-vlogger living in Shiga ken.

With subtitles so you can follow along if you don't speak Japanese.

The stuff at the end about approaching a woman is pretty funny.
