Tonight I took out the map of Sweden and started to plan the roadshow for the Ogoola poetry game.
I hope to participate in the ”Läromedelmässa” in cities like
I have an appointment with the LMS in Västerås probably in February. It was magical how the organizer of LMS Västerås, Gunnel Wallquist just organized everything so elegantly. I am really looking forward to meeting them and presenting Ogoola to them!
I am also planning on visiting and presenting the Ogoola poetry game to other language teachers associations (LMS) in Sweden. I plan to contact the following LMS! Gunnel told me that there are 22 LMS in Sweden! So here I come!
It’s really exciting to imagine presenting this game to teachers all over Sweden! I feel like I am a kind of diplomat introducing something Japanese and Swedish. (I am Japanese)
I heard that the teaching plan has changed last year and poetry is not much focused anymore. However, I still believe that this game could help students get in touch with beautiful words, expressions and thoughts. I also think this will help students with a mother tongue other than Swedish to learn correct and beautiful Swedish words and sentences. Therefore it could be used for many different purposes. Like for elderly people. It’s a great way to train the brain and have fun with their friends.
It’s getting late so I will stop for now today.
Live, Love and Laugh!
