    I offered my JTE about 5 choices and she chose this one. Thanks for the lesson of "US is danger, Oostoraria have koala".

    3rd grade class seem much more interested in the age of adulthood question, though according to one of them it's already been decided? I can't find anything in the news about it. Anyone heard this?

    Do they know female koalas never willingly participate in copulation? That they shout, 'iyada,' in Koala?

    I try to make debate simple and understandable. Something relating to their school life and interests. Such as school lunch vs. obento. Their culture is different from ours because for example, if their school decides to have school lunch that effect nearly every student! Meaning either school lunch ONLY or mother's obento ONLY. Not half and half... Other topics would be their clubs, school festivals, and so on.

    I'm back, and this time I'm looking for a REAL LIFE ISSUE, so I'm going to have them debate and write about a recent news article, including some of the curated comments.

    Anything interesting but not too challenging?

    The exodus of old representatives from the ldp in recent weeks.

    The global tanking of oil and its minimal impact on Japan vs the rest of the world.

    Marrying for money?

    Would you stay with them, nurture the investment?

    Or would you spend it all/ make it disappear and then later file for a divorce?

    Perhaps you'd go for the death of "natural" causes?

    I forget this isn't the lounge.
