Online English Lessons
Fall term 2021

www3.agu.ac.jp / ~jeffreyb / keitai.html

These lessons were originally written in the Spring of 2020 when classes were ONLY provided on demand. They were revised in the Fall of 2020 AND given as LIVE Lessons: both Face-to-Face and Online (simultaneously broadcast from the classroom). I revised them again for the Spring term 2021 and will continue revising them. The new lessons will appear as they are completed. You can CLICK here for links to the earlier versions: Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.

Teachers in cyberspace are INVITED to refer to and use these lessons for non-commercial pusposes. If you would like to REPRODUCE the lessons on YOUR OWN website, please contact me.

Anyone else that is interested should follow the links to the appropriate course and lesson. Read the lesson and follow the links in the lesson to the various Internet resources that I have been using over the years. If you have any questions, comments, or criticisms, please contact me directly.

My lessons are DESIGNED to HELP Japanese students
to LEARN to SPEAK English as a foreign language. They could
be REVERSE ENGINEERED to help English speakers learn to
speak Japanese as a foreign language.

I would be thrilled to SHARE my ideas about teaching foreign
languages with other teachers. You can CLICK the link above
to FIND my contact information.
