Japan Society Sixth Form Japan Week 2020 - Japan Foundation Online Japanese Language Workshop for Students  

We are honoured this year to be participating once again in Japan Society’s Sixth Form Japan event. This is a yearly event for sixth form students who attend to learn all about Japan and its language and culture.

Please note that this event will take place online and that it is open to Sixth Form students.

If you have any questions, please contact The Japan Society directly. You can find out how using this link.

The Japan Foundation, London will be running a language session on Japanese onomatopoeia.

---

Dokidoki! Express yourself using Japanese sounds.

Date: Tuesday 1st December 2020

Just as in English, the Japanese language has many onomatopoeia, and thousands more to choose from! Japanese speakers use them regularly in their daily conversation to express and also bring to life, not only the sounds, but also emotions and actions of any given scene or situation. In this interactive workshop, led by the Japan Foundation, London, you will be introduced to the rich variety of Japanese onomatopoeia and the Japanese visual language, manpu, frequently used in Manga to convey emotions through signs and symbols alone.


Date: 1 December 2020
