If you were a Sensei: BILINGUAL VERSION
There are all kinds of teachers, aren't there? Kind teachers, strict teachers, musical teachers, funny teachers ...
If you were a teacher, what kind of teacher would you be?
This book introduces everyday expressions that teachers say, such as when they encourage you or ask you to be quiet. Learn the meaning of these words and perhaps use all of them in order to become a very moody teacher!
Teacher Note: This story reinforces everyday classroom language in a fun and relatable context. With repetition, students can move from recognising this key language to using it to create their own imaginative 'teaching' scenarios.
いい です ね！
じょうだん です よ。
めがね は どこ です か。
