I have been using my natural gift for drawing and my fascination for anime' (Japanese animation) to gain their trust and enthusiasm towards our lesson. Well, Koreans and Japanese don't really mix well, but I hope through drawings and some animations I can make them feel comfortable on my class. Yesterdays, I used images from anime posters (which also means making me cut out my old anime posters to fit my bag) like Yoshihiro Togashi's "HunterXHunter" and Takehiko Inoue's "Slam Dunk". Tomorrow, I will then use Takehiko Inoue's "One Piece" characters, because Lucas (my very naughty yet adorable thirteen year old Korean student) tells me that he used to watch the series back in Korea. Bingo! I now have the ammunition to make him write and participate in class. I will tell you more about all my students in the next posts but for now I have to search for anything "One Piece" to use tomorrow, for my speaking, reading and writing class.
By the way, One Piece is my favorite anime, too. Looking for it is not really that big task of a task for me. I know where to find them and I enjoy doing it. Here are some pictures I will use tomorrow.
