Join JETAA Chicago for our Japanese Language Series! These recurring events are intended to bring together JETAA members and supporters who want to stay engaged with Japanese language learning and use.
Our kickoff meeting is Tuesday, May 11th from 7-8 pm CST! Our first meeting will consist of a few classic Japanese language games: Shiritori and Kanji Jukugo Puzzles!
Never played before? Never fear!
Shiritori asks players to provide a word beginning with that same sound the previous word ends with. For example, にほんご→ごがつ→つながり. If you’re a veteran JET, you may even have used this game in your English classes. If not, now’s the time to learn!
Jukugo is like a crossword puzzle, but with kanji. Each puzzle gives you 4 kanji, and you need to pick one more kanji that creates a different word with each of the others.
Unsure of your proficiency level? That’s okay! All levels of experience with Japanese are welcome! This is your opportunity to have some fun with Japanese.
