We had such a fun class on August 1st with a couple and their friend from LA and a man from UK. Also attending a photographer shooting for Tokyo.com.
The group today was very fun people including the photographer. We had great time to exchange information of activity in Japan.
I got an idea to give Japanese names to the participants in this class, and I’ve been giving the names to my studuends in the class. We call each other in Japanese name only in the class. I gave their name today Shigeru, Sachiko, Yuko, akiko ( her original Japanesae name given by shigeru) and Sho.
Japanese name means depend on which Chinese characters kanji use for. So there name might be same pronunciation but the meaning is little different. Every attendee have enjoyed Japanese name pretty much so far. I’ d like to keep doing in my class. Thank you for giving me the idea, shigeru!
