Immediate Conversations 1 is a textbook / workbook aimed at Japanese JHS students (complete beginner to false beginner level). Its purpose is to get students to practice real-time, two-way conversations within the classroom.
We believe that having successful experiences of real conversation at the early stages of English learning is very important for students’ future success. This textbook provides them with exactly what they need: simple linguistic material that is immediately applicable in a conversation, and some basic pragmatic advice on how to conduct a conversation in English.
Who is it for?
– 1st grade JHS students who have basic reading skills
– 2nd and 3rd grade JHS students or SHS students who haven’t had conversation practice.
– Teachers who are tired of students not speaking in class
What is unique about it?
The linguistic material in Immediate Conversations 1 can be used immediately in meaningful conversations. We have aimed for the optimal balance between simplicity and richness, giving simple structures that allow students to say many meaningful things. This is what most experienced teachers end up extracting from standard textbooks. Immediate Conversations 1 uses an original graphic format that is straightforward and simple for students to follow. The accompanying CD contains short, concise explanations in Japanese, saving time and reducing stress on teachers, especially teachers who aren’t confident of their Japanese.
My lessons are going really well and grading 1st term was a snap!!
Your book is fantastic. I use it at a nursing school and also with my junior high and first year high school students. The junior high kids really like the format and its practicality. The classroom applications are straight forward and fun. Thanks for a great classroom tool!
