Before entering the classroom, the teacher will take the students’ temperature again. At the same time, the teachers of the department of Japanese will also keep and collate temperature data of students.
During the class
Avoiding the “Three Cs” (Closed spaces, Crowed places, Close-contact setting), the desks in the classroom are spaced apart, and the classroom is always ventilated.
For conversation practice, which is the most important part of the class, the teacher has set up transparent vinyl sheets to hold group conversation so that students can have fun talking to each other.
The teacher actively uses smartphone apps to improve students’ conversation skills. Each smartphone maker used by students has an app with “Notes”. The teacher has introduced a “Notes” app in conversation classes so that students can check their pronunciation.
Students use the “Notes” app to read and record sentences, and they can check their pronunciation by referring to the sentences and letters converted automatically. Then, the teacher corrects the wrong pronunciation. Such as this method, students practice repeatedly.
After the class
After class, the teacher checks the usage of the classroom and disinfects desks and chairs.
