KEIGO (polite form) intensive
*YOU MUST RSVP IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS EVENT. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO RSVP BY 18:00 ON NOV. 16TH, FRI.! ------------------------------------------- Objective: Get more practice speaking politely in Japanese Level: Intermediate ------------------------------------------- Let's practice the following role-play situations in keigo! (1) A: You are a manager at a restaurant in Japan. A customer wants to speak with you. Go to his/her table, introduce yourself, and see if there is something you can help him/her with. B: You are on holiday at a restaurant in Japan. You had a horrible experience at the restaurant. Think of problems that you can complain about. Then talk to the manager of the restaurant, tell him/her your problems, and try to get a refund. (2) A: You are a police officer. Yesterday, a jewelry store was robbed between 6pm-6am. The robber, as seen on the store video camera, looks a lot like a man/woman you see on the street right now. Stop this suspicious man/woman and question him/her. Find out exactly what he/she was doing between 6pm-6am. B: You are walking on the street when a police officer stops you. You were working all night at a hotel last night and you are feeling exhausted today. (3) A: You are an English teacher. It’s late at night and you are out with your friends. You have a class tomorrow morning but you don’t want to go. Call your student and to cancel your class. B: You are not satisfied with your English teacher. Recently you have been thinking about finding another teacher. It’s 11:35 pm and you are in bed. You have class tomorrow morning. Soon, your phone will ring. (4) A: You are elderly. Your new desktop computer doesn’t work today. You don’t know anything about computers. Call you son-in-law/daughter-in-law for help. (You don’t know this, but the problem is that the monitor cable is not connected to the back of the computer so you can’t see anything on the screen. See if your son-in-law/daughter-in-law can find the problem.) B: Your father-in-law/mother-in-law are very old. They recently got a desktop computer. They don’t know how to use it. They think that you are a computer expert. Soon, one of them will phone you. Try to troubleshoot their problem.

What we're about

In our language exchange, you get to LEARN Japanese from Japanese speakers!

Bring in materials and questions that you wish to go over with your Japanese partners, such as textbook you’ve been studying, a news article you wish to discuss, or some lingering questions that you’ve had about Japanese.

If you don’t have anything at hand, just download a worksheet from each event page and bring it with you.

Each practice session is divided into two time-frames:

(1) You learning Japanese from your Japanese partners. (1 hour)

(2) Your Japanese partners learning English from you. (1 hour)

In return for their help, teach or help your Japanese partners with English. They will also bring in materials they wish to study with you.

Enjoy learning, enjoy helping others and enjoy making new friends!
