Digital Stories

The digital EHON site is starting to convert a number of Japanese stories into various languages. One of the languages it supports is French. The link takes you straight to the French section . One of the charming stories is Dongoruso, le chat vilain. it would be fantastic if the site would provide readers for the stories or if people would volunteer to read the stories in the languages the site supports. One thing at a time , though, they are busy getting the stories online. It’s a nice thing to show students because they respond to the images and then are willing to work through the language content and then perhaps they can make their own little stories in a slide presentation. That would suit older students. I like this site because it means you are teaching a target language but discovering the culture of another country through their texts.
