What we're about

We are the first polyglots (multilingual) meet up in Osaka, I guess. Because when I made this group there was no any similar group even after searching by any related words in April, 2015. You are very welcome, and I am glad you joined us. Firstly please do not worry, it is not needed you speak several languages. All the people would be welcome if you are willing to be multilingual or willing to speak specific language (Even one!! like Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, French, Korean, Italian and so on). At least one of our group member will help your study if you want (We have the speaker of Japanese = of course^^, English, French, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese and Korean☆彡).

The purposes of this group are

① Sharing "The skills of studying multi languages" and "All the knowledge related with languages".
② Having several skills (not only language skill) at the same time. The language skill would be the first challenge.
③ Making wide friendship through languages.
※Any languages will be welcomed without exception here.

We have been holding three types of event currently.

1. Multilingual event (group talk/ group discussion/ Sharing easy saying of rare language / etc..)
2. Multilingual event (see above) with Chinese tea and basic Mandarin Chinese lesson
3. Multilingual event (see above) with Coffee

Our related meetups
-1. Dance performance (Hiphop, Breaking, Popping, Locking, House, Belly dance and so on)
-2. Live show (Rap, Talkbox, Beatbox, Blues, R&B and so on)
-3. Dj time (Hiphop, House, R&B, EDM and so on)
※It is kinds of club event. But it is only held at day time (around 19:00~23:00). The atmosphere is good. The people are very friendly. No Charai people^^.

❷ [CTMO (Chinese Tea Meetup Osaka)]

✪[OMG(Osaka Multilingual Gathering)]
I am one of three organizers (Including Andy from Australia and James from U.K.)

On the other hand,
1. How to get on higher stage in my life by using several languages
2. How to contribute the people (for me especially for Japanese people) by using language skills.

They are my current theme. I have been wondering “just speak several languages” is great?? But, also we cannot say it means nothing. Then, what can I do?? Hope I can get any idea for the above mentioned theme through this activity. This may be my own purpose. By the way, you may have your own theme for your language life. Let’s share all, and get the answers together^O^/

Kind regards
