Mark's note: I teach countries just as a way to teach "Where are you from?"  This is not a geography lesson.  The above countries were chosen because they best reflect the countries young Japanese learners will know as well as might come in contact with.  Below are some other countries you might like to use.  They can be added to this set if you like, but they will not appear on the bingo sheets or handout.  I can make cards for other countries.  Please let me know if there is a country you'd like to teach but can't find here.
