Foundations Japan Club Sponsors Learning JapaneseJoseph Manja
Japanese, featuring three alphabets, is a complex and beautiful language spoken by over 125.000,000 people.
Miho and Miki patiently taught our club members several basic Japanese phrases. They introduced our club members to some common Japanese greetings and how to say the Japanese alphabet. They also demonstrated, step by step, several simple Japanese letter formation techniques.
Miho and Miki also taught our students how they could ask for a favorite food. It was great to see how well our Emirati girls did – given the fact that, for almost all of our students, speaking Japanese was a completely new experience!
The students were especially pleased when Miho and Miki offered to teach them how to write Emirati names in Japanese. As you can imagine, this was a very big hit with the girls, as Miho would quickly write down a name request in Japanese, while Miki went around helping the girls to copy what Miho had written on the white board at the front of the room.
As a gesture of Japanese hospitality, Miho and Miki distributed Japanese green tea biscuts to each participant. At the end of the session, the girls thanked Miho and Miki for what they had taught them.
