... and getting my message across.

Presenting in Japanese ...

My presentation to the students and professors for the Faculty of Bioresources at Mie University went quite well. I was able to get my meaning across even if I did not know all the correct Japanese words. I used a tape of summary behaviors from spotted dolphins, dusky dolphins and bottlenose dolphins. I updated everyone on my summer field work - basically referring to the summary I posted a few days ago. And, I showed an example of video that I collected this summer. A few of the behaviors no one there had seen before either. We had a good exchange and a lively discussion. I am pleased with how my Japanese is coming along and this was one of the first times that the audience did not focus on how I said my information but rather on the information. We ended the afternoon with a farewell party ... of sorts. I was introduced to some of the various food types from Western Japan. Very tasty. I will have one more posting regarding Japan and my field work there. I will also post a page of photos soon. This way you can attach a visual image to some of the areas and places I have mentioned in my reports. I will begin the Bahamas entries in about ten days. Need to begin prep for that field work before then. Cheers Kathleen
