Don’t know the difference between “hona” and “honma“? Fear no more, there’s a Kansai dialect class that’ll set you right.
The hour-long seminar is split into three parts: first, you’ll hear a short lecture on Kansai-ben and its history, and you’ll be introduced to 10 useful phrases; next, you’ll practice those phrases and their pronunciation with native Kansai-ben speakers; finally, you’ll make your own sentences using some or all of your newly acquired expressions — bonus points if you partner up with someone and make it into a manzai skit.
The seminar is followed by a casual get-together where participants can hang out with their native Kansai-ben teachers and fellow students.
Places are limited, so be sure to reserve a spot in advance.
Note: This class is recommended for Japanese speakers of lower-intermediate level and above.
