Instructor’s Directions

せんり   みち  いっぽ

千里の道も一歩から (Senri no michi mo ippo kara)

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”  Lao Tzu


The following sentences are for in-class use by the teacher to provide students with directions. Students do not need to be able to use these; just learn what action is expected. The goal is to avoid using English in the classroom from the very beginning of the course.
