Finally, I was ready to explain history of Japan, so we talked about it on that day. There are topics that were included in my ppt: What is “History of Japan” for Japanese students?, Characteristics of Japanese history, The origin of Japanese people, Periodization, The oldest documents, Famous Samurais, The Pacific War, Rapid economic growth and The Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami on 11th of March in 2011.
I hoped my presentation is easy to understand for her. That’s why I used pictures, graph or table and told my experience on 3.11. Actually I was afraid to tell my experience because it was sad story and I guessed she won’t come to Japan because of it. But she was okay. At least, for me, teaching about Japan in English is still hard but I feel it is getting better.
