I love, love, LOVE the Olympics. I volunteered as an assistant to the Japanese Team during the 2002 Olympics, and it was one of the best experiences of my life. It is exciting to watch the world’s strongest and fastest go for the gold. Who are you rooting for?

This is a good opportunity for you to learn/teach new Japanese words related to the Olympics. Click HERE to see what all the sports are called in Japanese on the Japan Olympic Committee’s website. You can read more about how Team Japan is doing on NHK’s website, HERE.

    How fun–love the food art–what talent! I’m rooting for the US, but the Japanese gymnast who won gold last night was impressive!

What do you think? どうおもう?
