Elementary Japanese Class

 This video illustrates one typical pattern used in Japanese language classes in lower elementray schools.  The students are completing a drill in which they summarize a story.  The focus is both on reading comprehension and proper writing style, as well as on writing hiragana (one form of syllabic writing) and limited numbers of Chinese characters properly.
