First Friday of December is coming up!

I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving little break except for 1102 students struggling with て-form of all the verbs we encountered by now. The first Friday of the month is coming up and the hilarious comedy film begins at 4:00pm and monthly JCC dinner gathering will follow. The information is in JCC website linked through GTS homepage on this blog (upper right corner).The first Sunday of December is the day of official Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) worldwide and several GTS family students will take it at DePaul University on Sunday where GTS is one of the head staff. This Thursday night is the final global classroom project in 1100 Honor Seminar and our focus will be Divorce issues and Elderly care issues. The Honor Seminar will be coming back next fall! GTS Spring Break Field Trip to Japan and Summer Study Abroad Japan are now accepting participants, so contact GTS if interested. These programs are open to anyone in the United States with in-district tuition!

Shingo! I feel like it has been months since last class... What are we working on again?

I hope the 2-4 inches of snow doesnt interrupt classes...

Snow has nothing to do with my class as you know! The more snow, the more fun... How is that? -GTS

I agree with Wes, FAR too long since we had a class and SOO much to master before taking the chapter 6 test + final. I am comfortable with what I know for the class and the tests but I'm sure many stupid mistakes will be made. I am unhappy with my current level of technical proficiency.

I espescially need more particle practice, it would be great to have some extra practice.

I have many plans for alternative studying during the month long break from GTS classes. I will be playing My Japanese Coach, Working through the げんき elementary Japanese textbook, and doing lessons daily at www.iknow.co.jp. Maybe by then I will be ready for GTS tests... but most likely not!

Well analyzed, Jerry! -GTS

Nice blog thought I would check out some comments.

Yeah, AARON! All the comments of the blog are more interesting than the blog itself! I did check your blog, though -GTS
