"Manga" English (30 minutes)
This is an innovative way to study English using "Manga" (cartoon) style! This lesson is for beginners and intermediate English learners!
Dear Cafetalk Community,
"Manga" or graphic novels are the new wave of the future when it comes to providing visual aid as a form of innovative instruction. For example, there is a book at the library called, "The Manga Guide to Calculus" to teach mathematics with illustrations.
The construct of the lesson is for the students to answer "fill-in-the-blank" questions according to the situation that is depicted in the cartoon.
Please note that you are only able to take two lessons of this course. If you like manga or graphic novels, this might be a fun method to improve your English. I hope you find this class intriguing if manga is your cup of tea!
Also, this class is for beginners and intermediate English learners. If you are an advanced student, this lesson might be too easy for you. Please take the lesson at your discretion.
If you'd like to get a Feedback on the lesson, please be sure to mention it beforehand in your lesson request!

Feedback from students
先日はレッスンありがとうございました。 マンガの中では言い慣れない表現に戸惑いましたが（学校では学んでいるはず）、改めて確認するきっかけとなりました。 コツコツと自分の使いこなせる表現を増やしていけたらと思います。
