It was a great turnout for the first time at KGU, with a wide variety of in-service teachers and pre-service students with 20 attendees.
The CPS (Classroom Practice Series) portion of the meeting was led by Tomomi Nishioka, a teacher at Ichinomiya JHS and a former KGU students and she was presenting some materials by Fumiko Nagai, a teacher at Kikuchi Minami JHS, who couldn't attend. The topic was number of ideas for speeches in the classroom and different ways to use them.
The GAS (Grammar Awareness Series) portion was led by Akenobu Sugawara, who talk about using the present tense in conversation, giving us lots of examples of the English present tense along with some interesting games.
This was followed by introductions and some free talking. And snacks!!!
