Learning Japanese through Games...
On Saturday - we popped into the International Communication Plaza to grab some info... While we were there we noticed a flyer on the wall saying that there were free Japanese conversation/cultural lessons which were starting in 10 minutes!!!! This week's topic was Japanese games... so we decided to go and pop our heads in!
This cute elderly Japanese woman was running the show.... she showed us all sorts of crazy games that she played in her childhood before the 'days of nintendo.' We played a Japanese version of pin the tail on the donkey - but instead you had to place different facial features on the paper. We also spun tops in the hallway, played a crazy marble grabbing game with fake skirts, a crazy samurai slapping coaster game, an old school sumo board game and more!!! The ladies running the class were loads of fun so I think I'll join them every Saturday!
