Trane_Manekineko Thanks for the photo Trane!

昨日は中学生と大学生いっしょにレッスン

Manekinekoの絵があって

招き猫をもし知らない人に英語で説明するならなんて言おう?!

ってなりました。

ちなみに日本語だと?!

人を招く猫

置物です

店や家にあります

商売繁盛の祈願

参考にテキストを見てみました

It is a cat that’s usually made of ceramic. And people have it for good luck.

なるほどねー。
じゃあ挑戦、お正月について説明してみよっか?

Eat Some mochi

Good! But who?

Everyone eats some mochi

When?

Every one eats mochi in the morning.

Takoage? Fly a kite.

Children fly a kite and play karuta.

いいね!なかなか面白いね。かるた、たこあげ、もち、にも解説が必要になるわね。笑

It is the Japanese New Year’s Day.

Everyone goes to the shrine to wish for a good year.

Children get otoshidama from adults.

たくさん英語で考えてみましたね!楽しかった(o^^o)
