This is the last Season 1 Episode 1 Sex and the City Event,
If you want to join this group go to our Sex and the City Discussion Message Board and you can study the vocabulary. That way you can quickly get caught up to where we are at. Non-Japanese should have a command of at least 800 Kanji
We will met once a week for three weeks to cover the English transcript and then (the Japanese transcript separately) of the same episode of Sex and the City. We all participated by reading the characters lines, and at any point anyone can ask the group questions about the word, phrase, cultural nuance, cliche etc. We can explore real life Japanese and English phrases from daily conversation. Also we get a view into the cultural differences regarding dating, social intelligence, and emotional intelligence as it relates to Japanese and English. この週一イベントは１００％無料です！勉強用の無料資料等を用意できるのは、人気ドラマの "Sex & the City" を教材として使って、学校ではなかなか習うことのない「日常会話」などが身に付きますよ！みんなで一緒にドラマをみてその後話したり、質問したり、英語以外にも文化や習慣、今実際に使われている話言葉なんかもみにつきます に遊びにきてください！みんなで楽しく勉強しちゃいましょう！！
