Hello once again everyone!
Me again here to let you know about when the next Nihongo Bin will be.
On next Tuesday, 11/5 At 7pm, we will once again meet for our discussion on all things Japanese. This one, I will be going over something a bit more serious.
You go to another country and suddenly there is an earthquake, tsunami, massive floods or any other kind of disaster...What do you do? I will be going over many of the things to do in an emergency while in Japan and how YOU, as a foreigner, can not only get to safety but also stay out of the way or help rescue and relief efforts. I will attempt to give you all or most of the places, contacts, phone numbers and policies involved in this so that, should your fortunes turn for the worst, you can greatly increase your chances of survival in a foreign environment. This info is quite important for those of you planning to visit for your first time.
As for other announcements:
On Monday the 4th, The Japan Cinema series will be presenting Ran at 7pm at Cafe Istanbul. This is a classic tale that you should all see!
And then on the 9th is our very first Dokidoki Beats! The first in a monthly series devoted to those who love Japanese music, Music videos, fashion and other pop related items. Themes will change monthly as will the PRIZES!! That's right: For this event, as a fund raiser for the Japan Society of New Orleans, we will be holding a raffle for all kinds of prizes! Prizes include everything from gift cards, to Asian inspired toys, goods and display items to historical pieces donated to us by such wonderful companies as Kawaii, Kyoto 2, Funky Junk Brothers, and Huh! Restaurant and Bar! Come out, buy some raffle tickets and put them in the bin for the item or items you want most! All raffle proceeds benefit the Japan Society of New Orleans! Fun starts at 8pm on Saturday November 9th with the first prize drawing at 9pm! Cosplay, Lolita and other Japanese fashion highly encouraged! Door prizes and best dressed prizes as well. Be There!
And don't forget the delicious food of Huh as well as a chance to meet our very own Japanese Language Instructor Romy and set up your own lessons to learn the beauty of the Japanese language we all love! She is also working on Katakana lessons as well so stay tuned! Anyone interested in lessons with her can contact her at 504.408.1162 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, For anyone interested in running one of these sessions, Nihongo Bin is designed for people to be able run a session on their own and teach people about Japanese subjects that interest them. Anyone in this group is able to lead a session or, if you are not comfortable being up there alone, I will happily do the session with you. If you just can't be in front of people, just give me the information and I will lead the session with full credits to you. All anyone interested has to do is let me know :)
That's all I have for now! See y'all next week and, as always, feel free to ask me any questions or let me know should you be interested in leading a Nihongo Bin!!
