Reply from Yoko:
I would recommend Click Nippon site.
Especially the articles and photos in 1/365 are written/taken by teenagers, so we can observe what language they use, what they are interested in, how they interact with family and friends.
I also think My Way Your Way section is very interesting.
(This segment is all about hot trends in Japan and the people who are part of such trends. How did they get interested? What has come of their
involvement? What exactly do they do and what’s the thinking behind it? They’ll
tell you themselves in My Way Your Way.)
The articles are written in authentic language so it may be
challenging for your students, but most of them have English, Chinese and Korean
versions, so it is worth looking.
