Let's study Japanese! "It's food time"

  • Feb 19, 2013 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

So, as mentioned yesterday, I'll be hosting the next study group so I thought I'd take matters in my own hands, send out the invite myself and relieve Béatrice of her responsibility for this time!

We haven't talked about a topic to work on for next time so, as I was chatting about it my teacher tonight, her husband came up with the best idea one could ever have for a discussion: FOOD!

We briefly talked about the concept of 居酒屋 (いざかや - izakaya) which are Japanese (obviously) pubs where you can have a drink and eat something quick at the same time, a bit similar to Spanish tapas.
For more information, please do refer to the wonder of my life... wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Izakaya

So, the idea would be to discuss about whatever concerns food/drinks. What's typical to your country, what do you like to eat, what's you favourite Japanese food, ingredient, whatevs!

If you like, we could even push it a little bit further and everyone could bring a little something easy that they like and could potentially be found in a Spanish tapas bar or a Japanese 居酒屋, or at French apéro, etc.
I myself like the idea of enjoying some nice little bites while talking about it, でしょう?

Yours truly,
Little Red Frog aka Anaïs aka アナイス

    It's my first time I joined the Japanese-salon Meetup. It was fun and I guess more relax mood with food and drink than usual? いつもはもっと日本語の勉強ムードなのでしょうか?

      it was more relaxed indeed. we always do have fun but so far it was more studious though ;)
      let's see about next time ^_^

    So everyone just left... Guys, it was a lot of fun and nice food!! Not much Japanese talk though, I guess we do need Beatrice for the discipline factor ;)
    Still, I look forward to the next session and to the potential drinks, restaurant, film, whatevs!
    おやすみ〜!!

    こんにちは皆さん! お元気ですか。
    I thought good to mention that I have 2 cats so if someone happens to be allergic, make sure to come prepared. You're very likely not to see them but well... their hair is ever so present (=^_^=)
