In this week’s classes for the nurses, we did how to give and receive street directions. This unit, although useful for the knowledge about how streets work in the US and vocabulary, is a little dull. Maybe not just a little. Pretty dull.
To liven things up we used a street map of San Diego, California for some realia, but even that was a little dull. When I worked at schools in Kumamoto, we would make our own maps of places around the university, but there is nothing around this university unless we could make a map of parking spaces, parked cars, bamboo groves, woods, and the school buildings. But my judgement says that would be worse than maps of San Diego.
