My son came back home from the two-day program of lectures on mountaineering and Yufu-Dake climbing around 6 in the evening.
He didn’t seem tired so I asked him if he could try an English article of Ito’s “Visual”.
To my astonishment, he said “OK, I will.”
Then we read not one but two articles---#2 and #3--- together.
It took us only 25 minutes.
He did a pretty good job and I realized that this text book is very good to enrich his Japanese and English vocabulary.
I lost the text book “Visual Part 1”, so I can utilize the text as freely as I think, not following Ito's direction, which I don’t know good or bad.

#2
He made a mistake in translating “civilization”.
He had an ambiguous recognition about the difference between civilization and culture.
Then I asked him some questions to make the difference clear.
It’s important to know the equivalent Japanese word to a certain English word and it’s also important to know that the coverage of the meaning of them is not always the same.

#3
We can use it(light) to see very small things that make us sick, or to study distant stars.

Say “very small things that make us sick” in some other words.
bacillus, bacterium, germ. much smaller one: virus

What do you call the study?
astoronomy

Check the following words.
astoronomy, astronaut , astrology

Without light, green plants on earth could not live. Without plants, plant-eating animals could not live. Then meat-eating animals and man could not have any food.

What do you call the mechanism of “Without light, green plants on earth could not live.”?
Photosynthesis

Check the prefix “photo”.

What do you call plant-eating animals and meat-eating animals?
Herbivorous and carnivorous

Check the prefix “herb".   
herbal medicine

See the original meaning of the festival “carnival”.

I enjoyed the lesson very much and hope that he did too.
We couldn’t have the morning lesson, so we didn’t study Yasukouchi’s grammar book today.
