Explain that we will be talking about ‘countries’. The I give them some examples of countries and try to elicit responses from them to guess what ‘countries’ means. I then ask students to name countries that they know. (4mins)


My ES has a diverse group of students with some going for juku and hence they know some English. This is just to build on their prior knowledge and to build the context of the lesson.


Use flash cards to make students repeat after the ALT. We take note of the difference in pronunciation between Japanese and English. (5mins)

Getting students used to English pronunciation


Do page 18 and 19 of textbook. (10mins)

I do this mainly because I don’t want the teachers to feel as if they need to rush their lessons if we skip a portion of the textbook.

Teach students the phrases ‘Where do you want to go?’


‘I want to go to_______’ (3mins)

As part of what they should know in this lesson, we start teaching them these phrases.
