Oral English 2: Lesson 10
I've returned all your presentation outlines with my comments. If you have any questions, you can email me or send me a message on Line.
After speed discussion, we learned about gestures. This is a type of body language and is part of "non-verbal communication." Non-verbal language (body language) is just as important (or even more important) than the spoken word. To demonstrate this, I gave a short explanation in French. When I gave my explanation without gestures, NOBODY understood what I said. However, when I supported it with gestures, all of you could understand the main idea of my explanation.
You can use four different types of gestures:
a. number / sequence
b. illustration / location
c. emphasis / focus
Overall, discussions were very well done today. I was very impressed that all leaders were checking understanding and had strong conversational style in the discussion part. For our last round of discussions next week, please remember these points:

In my opinion, declining birthrate is a very serious problem in Japan. One reason for declining birthrate is because in Japan the average age of the first marriage is getting older, so it is more difficult for older couples to have babies. One solution is to create the places of encounters. Some events of various hobbies or sports may be effective for singles to get to know each other. Another one is the government has to prepare enough nursery schools for working parents. Also in case of that children get sick and have to be absent from nursery schools or elementary schools, parents need a place like a hospital to take care of their children while they are working. The problem is that it is too expensive for the government to pay for the places and personnel costs. We cannot say it’s a government problem. All of us have to think this problem more seriously. What we can do is that in the society we help each other and raise children all together. In the comfortable society young people naturally want to get married and have babies.

In my opinion, smoking is one of the biggest social problems in Japan. Smoking is bad for the health and our lungs get worse every time we smoke. Moreover, smoking causes the passive smoking. One solution is to raise the cigarette’s price. Japanese people buy a cigarette in spite of themselves because it is cheaper. That’s why we should raise the price of it. Another one is to appeal to smoker to risk of smoking. Abroad put on the illness of smoking on the cigarette’s package. Consequently, smoker is afraid of risk of smoking so they stop smoking. That’s why we should call the danger of smoking.

In my opinion, suicide is now a serious social problem. As that evidence, it is said that one person kill oneself every forty seconds. One reason that for Japan's high suicide rate is because of the lack of consideration. More and more people try to avoid to get involved with others. I suggest two solutions about suicide problem.

Then, everybody can get rid of their stress at any time.

In my opinion, declining birthrate is an important social problem facing Japanese society. Today, related this problem's news is featured on TV a lot. The cause of this is late marriage and increasing unmarried man or woman. One solution is to build a lot of nursery school and increase nursery school teacher. A two-income family need a place which leave their child. There are a lot of children who can't enter the nursery school. Another one is to increase a encounter. First, if you want to marry, you look for a partner. And you must take action yourself. Also, for support it community, I think it it good to locate many encounter place.

In my opinion, smoking is an important social issue facing Japanese society. One reason for, the risk which gets ill increases by smoking but, nonetheless, Japan's sigarette tax is low in developed countries. In addition to this, not very aware of the risk a lot of people. One solution is that cigarette tax increases. The average price of the Japanese cigarettes is 430 yen. On the other hand, that of the Canadian cigarettes is 836 yen. So Japanese cigarette tax should increase. Another one is that the package warn against smoking strongly. It's to appeal to people about the fear of the cigarette.

In my opinion, declining birthrate is one of the most important problems in Japan. One reason for the tendency to marry later causes the problem. And, declining marriage rate also causes one. One solution is to give unmarried person many opportunities that meeting isomerisms. Government and public organizations should hold like a "Machi Com" in Japanese; Parties of each other isomerisms. Another one is to give married couples donations for their children. So married couples can rise their children if they can not afford to do it. We should make the atmosphere that marriageable.

One reason of child abuse is because of some problems of the parents. For example, parents tend to be depressed about childcare. One solution is to toughen the law of child abuse.

In my opinion, "Monster parent" is very serious problem all over the world. Because they make an egocentric and unreasonable demand to schools. In short, they can be considered big complainers. In addition, monster parents influence over their children. At first, children no longer respect their teachers; the children think teachers’s situation is lower than the parents’. Next, Children are teased by classmates about their parents and feel ashamed. This problem can be the cause of bullying. One solution is to suggest a communication schedule that teachers think is reasonable and that the parent is comfortable with. For example, teachers commit to checking in with the parent to apprise them of their child’s progress.
6/16/2015 06:55:26 pm
In my opinion,ｃompensated dating with girls is very serious problem in Japan. It happened by not girls but some older men. Girls feel them kindness, so girls become victims. I think parents teach them that all of kind older men are good persons. And dating site take carefully that girls watch such sites. In addition, teachers tell them that a big town have many dangerous in the evening. If adults around girls take care of them, this problem will decrease in Japan. Therefore I am going to search what we can do for girls.
