The teachers on the website above are not Japanese teachers but as a Japanese teacher I was very inspired with their work. Jane Ross had her students going into a village in Indonesia and recording what children in the village said, and translating it into English.
I don't have any affiliation with the company. There are both iPad and Android apps available for free. If you think some students and teachers might get benefit, please advertise the website. http://bit.ly/1oaaBIi
I thought creating a book using Japanese might be really good real life activity.
Thank you for consideration!
