Let's get together on Tuesday October 15th to practise Japanese in the East Village! We'll hold our next meetup at Klimat, a great bar on 7th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenue. This time we will have a special guest from Sapporo, Japan!
For this meetup we'll try out a theme to start the discussion: "Differences between the US and Japan". Come prepared with an interesting difference between the US and Japan that you've noticed or experienced!
We'll distribute a handout with some useful Japanese expressions (see the end of this mail for a sample). Also, you are welcome to bring a useful Japanese expression that you've learned recently and that you'd like to share with other members of the group.
See you there!
Ben and Drew
A close shave, narrrowly avoiding disaster
Literally: one hair (away from a) crisis
Ni usagi wo ou mono wa ichi usagi wo mo ezu
Trying to do two things at once will make you fail in both.
Literally: One who chases after two hares won't catch even one.
We'll include these and a few other expressions in the handout we give out at the meetup.
Also, we've also posted a page of useful links for studying Japanese at the meetup website:
Feel free to make suggestions for more!
