Students will practice writing "I think ( ) because ( )" sentences
handout, Japanese-English dictionary

Start class by telling students that you are from a warm country and that winters in Japan are much colder than what you are used to. Ask them to write you a letter telling you how to survive winter in Japan. They must have at least five suggestions for you and they must be in the form of “I think you should ______________ because ___________.”  For example: “I think you should drink hot lemon because it is good if you are sick.”

Brainstorm some ideas with the kids and do a couple of examples on the board.  Then, have them write their letters.
