Assessment and Reporting . . .

PENPAL SECTION OF THE MAGAZINEYes it’s that time of year guys. I’m busy writing your reports (hint hint) and all of you are madly trying to keep up with the assignments and tests that us teachers are throwing at you. Just remember you only have 5 weeks to go before a massive long break –  use that as motivation to get your butt into gear and finish on a high note – I know I am! (And that last week is a fun activities week so really you only have 4 weeks of work)

So here are a few pleasant reminders of upcoming tests and assignment due dates. Please make note of the ones relevant to you. Chuck a reminder in your phone, write them down in your diary (if you actually use it!) or write it in permanent ink on your forehead.

    Well done Tegan and Rach, I think you’ve managed to answer each others questions without my help!
    To say may I open the window in my room: Watashi no heya no mado wo akete mo ii deus ka is correct!
    To say I am not allowed to wear shoes inside the house is: uchi no naka ni kutsu wo haite wa dame desu. (** Note it is hakimasu which changes to haite, need to drop the ‘ki’)

    If either of you need some time at lunch or after school, I can open up a computer room so stop stressing!!!

    Oh my god. How do you say that you’re “Not allowed to wear shoes on the tatami mat”
    or is that too difficult?
    Mine is due tomorrow and I was supposed to spend all day on it but then we went shopping and that took too long. What are some statements I can say on what you’re allowed and not allowed to do?
    Thanks
    Rachelle

      Wow! Ok breathe,
      If you didn’t want to say on the tatami mat you could say in the tatami room, it might be easier. Would it be たたみい(particle?)へやの中にくつ おはきいてだめです。?

      Maybe you could say shoes are not allowed inside the house, I think it is
      うちの中にくつおはきいてだめです。(is to wear shoes in ‘te’ form はきいて or does it mean just to wear pants?)
      Of course there is always allowed to listen to music, not allowed to eat in bedroom(not sure if it’s true of all japanese households) stuff like that…

      I’m not sure if it’s all right but I’m sure you can tell.
      Keep it simple. Good luck.
      Tegan 🙂

        Thankyou so much. I think I got a headache from worrying so much. I hope what I have said on your posts helps you.

    Hi all, 🙂
    Was working on list of phrases asking permission and was wondering if I wanted to ask: “May I open the window in my room,” would it be:
    私のへや中(particle???)まどをあかてもいいですか。??
    I’m not sure if everything is in the right place.
    Thanks Tegan 😛

    • Rachelle says:

      well open is “a KE te mo i i de su ka.” and I don’t think you need the kanji for middle or inside.
      I think that it would be something like
      Watashi no heya no mado o aketemoiidesuka.

      Because it is my window in my room.
      Rachelle

    Hey, didn’t know where to add this, thought this would be the best place. I had no idea how to change my keyboard to Japanese on my laptop whilst working on my Japanese project, and then I found this website. http://www.coscom.co.jp/learnjapanese801/howtotypejapanese.html
    It tells you how to change the settings on your computer to Japanese typing like on some computers at school. Probably will be useful for new school laptops.
    Hope this helped some people.
    Good luck with your Japanese. 🙂
    Jess.

    • Tegan :) says:

      Thanks Jess that was really good.
      I had Japanese but couldn’t get half width, this tutorial helped heaps it had a great link to a tutorial for macs. It’s harder to find tutorials for macs.
      Thanks again
      Tegan
