Stephen from Vietnam has sent in these amazing messages from his junior high school students.
If you are teaching in Japan (and Gumby I know you have evacuees with you) then please show them to your students.
They are very impressive, both in their message and in the childrens’ skills.

Here’s a brief word from Stephen:
From Vietnam – We all feel for the beautiful people of Japan. Praying that there are no more of these terrible disaster. We love you all, our sympathy goes out to all that lost near and the dear ones.
This project was undertaken at one of the public schools here at Ho Chi Minh City with year 7 class. Taking into account that I only spend about one and a half hour a week with each class at various schools I feel that these kids did a terrific work.
There was no preparation, no vocabulary build up, and certainly no time for grammar lesson or correcting the spelling. This was not the focus of the exercise. What really surprised me is how the students reacted with positive and genuine attitude. They were very keen and sincere, caring about the rest of the world. They really are wonderful kids. So, here is there work. Kind Regards from Vietnam
If any of you have projects you’ve been doing with your children then please do send them in.
As you know we have many teachers here from Japan and I’ll also post them on the Japanese version of Genki English.
P.S. Keep tuned in for tomorrow. I have a very EXCITING way that you can help with the tsunami crisis.
