Tongue twisters are language games that are always fun for everyone!
"Kaeru Pyoko Pyoko" is a beloved Japanese tongue twister phrase.
This material is good for Japanese language beginners.
I saw many shy students willingly challenged by this game!
This resource comes with English (2 pages) and Japanese (2 pages) instructions.
Please use this as the second tongue twister material after students get used to the 'Aka PJ' tongue twister. (You can find the free ‘Aka PJ’ material in my products.)
*Learn how to say 'frog' in Japanese (Frog - Kaeru).
*Learn the mimetic words for a 'jumping frog' in Japanese (Pyoko Pyoko).
*Learn two counting words
(3 is 'Mi' in the old counting system, which becomes 'Mi'-ttsu' in modern grammar.
6 is 'Mu' in the old system, which becomes 'Mu-ttsu'. )
*Learn how to say 'all together' in Japanese (Awasete)
*Gain courage to speak up
Please bring a lot of smiles to your class with this activity and have fun yourself, too!
