  1. How many people are in your family?

    Slide 1 - How many people are in your family?

    • Flipped classroom support for JBlog textbook 1 page 31, 32 & 34
  2. People counters

    Slide 2 - People counters

    • This is the kanji for person/people :
    • You will need this kanji when you are describing how many people are in your family. Eg 6 people is written 六人. 
    • The stroke order for this kanji appears at the bottom of page 111 in your JBlog textbook 1.
    • When you watch the song on the next slide, you will notice that the romaji for the counters appears differently to what you are studying in JBlog. This is because the song has written it using the kunrei-shiki system. Confused?
    • Turn to page 38-39 to read senpai’s explanation of what this means.

    • Which three numbers do not follow the pronunciation rule? Write the answer in your book.
  5. Answers to the question on page 32

    Slide 5 - Answers to the question on page 32

    • Were you able to work out the three numbers whose pronunciation does not follow the rule : kanji number + nin?
    • The first two are quite easy to spot as they are quite different.
    • 一人 This is the kanji for 1 person. You would expect it to be pronounced ichi + nin but it is in fact pronounced hitori.
    • 二人 This is the kanji for 2 people. You would expect it to be pronounced ni + nin but it is in fact pronounced futari. Be careful with this pronunciation though as futori is another word that means fat!
    • 四人 This is the kanji for 4 people. You would expect it to be pronounced yon + nin but it is in fact pronounced yonin. The extra n is dropped so it is a bit harder to spot.
