Momotaro - The Story of the Son of a Peach, Part I
Today some students from grade 9 at my school had their first meeting with their new reading tutor from Japan, Mr Huy Tran, English teacher at Yamaga Junior High School, Yamaga City, Kyushu, Japan.
They started reading the Momotaro fairy tale, adapted by the American writer Ralph F. McCarthy, which is very famous in Japan. Teacher and students changed reading loud and clearly. And Mr Tran gave them some hints to pronounce the English words the right way.
Finally they will have to talk straight to their new teacher from the distance during small discussions about different topics.
