Ongaku to Dorama - The third activity of Nihongo Kouryuu Kurabu - 5:30 pm, Sep 24, 2016

There are different ways to learn a language. Few of the fast, easy and fun ways to learn are by singing and roleplaying. Music connects across cultures and helps to foster the understanding of a language through right pronunciation, intonation by following the rhythm and the emotion conveyed by the words put together.

The students of IJCCI who charmed the Japanese audience with their performance on the Japanese night, were more than delighted to perform for us again on the 24th of September for the Kouryuu Kurabu activity.

We began with a skit which was a comical sequence of tongue twisters. They are a great way to improve pronunciation and speed of communication. It is important to be able to speak and sound clearly with a good diction. By repeating the difficult words quickly and correctly, tongue twisters also help beginners of a language avoid any confusions in meaning between similar sounding words.

Following the skit was a medley performance by our students, which was a wonderful fusion of the popular Japanese songs Miagete Goran, Tanabata Song - Sasa no ha Sara Sara, Mori no Kuma San, Ooki na kuri, Shiawase naratte o tatakou. But we did not just stop with the skit that tickled our stomach and the soothing medley performance. The singers explained the meaning and the significance of each song. With each explanation, we had a sing along session with the audience. By the end of the programme, some of the people from the audience even stood up and cheered, joyfully singing along with the singers.

Once again, all of us came together at IJCCI to celebrate, enjoy, and learn the language that we love.

Nihon no Oshougatsu - The second activity of Nihongo Kouryuu Kurabu - 5:30 pm, Aug 27, 2016

All festivals bring families and friends together, both close and distant. In fact, festivals light up our lives with ecstatic joy and happiness that will make us want to be better people in our lives.

On the 27th of August, IJCCI organized the club’s second programme with a theme of festive celebration. There are a lot of festivals that hold cultural and traditional values in Japan. “Oshougatsu” or New Year is amongst the most anticipated festivals in Japan. Like any other festival, New Year is about getting people together and spreading the joy. Also, it is a symbol of renewal.

We began by interacting with our fellow students about how each of them celebrated their New Year and got a lot of opinions that were interesting, delightful and also amusing. It was interesting to learn and share with each other the various cultural and traditional ways of welcoming the New Year. A striking difference is that our New Year’s celebration lasts for a day while in the Japanese culture, it started from a month before, from December till the New Year’s day. It was remarkable to see that, amidst this huge difference, there are many similarities between our celebrations.

We also learnt that in December, various parties were held to bid farewell to the problems and concerns of the past year. What really astounded us was one of their beliefs - The shrines strike their gongs 108 times to get rid of 108 types of weaknesses. Truly strikes a chord with our traditions, right? We also exchanged information on what and how differently the Japanese celebrate the New Year. Despite the differences there are a lot of similarities like the custom of the elders giving money to the children and the popular tradition of New Year’s cards. We might be from different lands, but just like us, the Japanese visit beautiful places and have a wonderful time along with a grand feast.

Towards the end, we played a very beautiful and popular song called “Oshougatsu” for the students. All of us sang along with the music a couple of times together. By translating the meaning of the song, we discovered a new set of vocabulary pertaining to New Year!

It is important to note that the involvement, interaction and support from the students and the teachers are worth mentioning. Once again, we succeeded in making people learn the fun way. We’re sure that everyone will be looking forward to the next programme!
