Madly flicking between windows to embed a youtube clip onto my blog (following Penny's instructions step by step). If all goes well, a clip on how to use a Japanese-style toilet should be available for you to watch.... Here goes nothing!
10 min later (grr) having problems - keep getting an error message. Will try again for a short time only (have more urgent things needing doing)!

Yatta! Banzai! Yay, I did it! Thanks Penny!

Is there anybody out there?
If so, please say hello! (Yes the phone probably would be quicker at this stage of our learning!!)
Thanks Penny for your patience.

My advanced search task wasn't very advanced. Couldn't find how to set the target language into Japanese, therefore, got some very funny sites when I typed in "uchi", Japanese for house. At least it was different form the "Western real-estate-adds", but, I'm sure, not REALLY very helpful for teaching kids about Japanese housing.
The "deliminators" did make a difference, though!
Will keep trying for a bit... but would LOVE to HEAR from someone (at the moment my computer is all I'm "talking to" - and, unlike some of my students!!, it doesn't answer back!!)
Oh, also, I have to do the bit from home, as it's banned at school, and I'm too busy to find the deputy and spoil for a fight (again!) this week :)
