そうだん phrases: a. 社長が市長に相談する b. 電話で長話をする
ち 1. Learn the new and review vocabulary in the 準備 (Making Preparations) section on p. 235. Also, learn these phrases using this vocabulary. パーティに友達を招待する invites a friend to the party 招待 状を出す sends an invitation 誕生パーティの準備をする makes preparations for the birthday party 同窓会の会 場 place where the class reunion is held
そうだん そう じょう たん じゅんび じょう c. 長持ちの電池 (電池 = battery) 忙
Since 忄 is the form 心 ("heart, mind, state of mind") takes as a left-side part in kanji, 忙 (busy) has the same parts as 忘 "forgets." 2. Explain how the parts in 忙 combine to suggest the meaning busy. 3. How will you remember that 忙 means busy and 忘 "forgets"? 先生に相談する consults the teacher
せき そうだん 先生に成績のことを相談する consults the teacher about grades 2. Write answers to #2 and 3 in Ex. D (p. 235-6). 3.
