Hello again, and welcome to the Wednesday WordMaster! Today we talk about a place and a group of teachers that many of us remember with great fondness!

Today's Lesson
HOMEROOM (TEACHER)   ホームルーム(担任教師)


  • A homeroom is the room to which a group of students in the same grade go at the beginning of each school day (or at some other regular time each day) and where a teacher checks which students are late or absent, makes general announcements, etc.

    A homeroom teacher is the teacher responsible for a homeroom.
  • homeroom とは、始業時(または、そのほかの決まった時間に)、同じ学年の生徒が集まり、教師が遅刻や出欠の確認をとったり、連絡事項を伝えたりする教室、つまり、ホームルームのことです。

    homeroom teacher とは、クラスに対して責任のある教師、つまり、担任教師のことです。
