Handout Overview

Although Japan is a world-leader when it comes to the provision of paternity leave, (a very generous one year), in reality only 6 percent of eligible fathers took child care leave. Furthermore, over 70 per cent of men who did take paid-leave, took less than 2 weeks. A Japanese government commissioned study concluded that the majority of new fathers wanted to take child care leave but were concerned that it might be a burden on their co-workers, cause them financial difficulties, or even affect their chances of promotion.

Handout Overview

Telling the time is a part of our everyday lives. We hear it when asking about store opening and closing times or when making appointments. This handout helps your ESL students to practice telling time and using the simple present tense to describe, ask and talk about their daily life.
