Japanese Language Pedagogy: To Have Fun Learning Japanese
Tuesday, March 29, 4pm
The Center for Asian Studies would like to invite you to a lecture on
Japanese language pedagogy through rakugo and culture by Takako Sakai,
professor of the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences at
Tsukuba University in Japan. In this lecture, Professor Sakai will
introduce 'rakugo,' which is a unique traditional Japanese verbal
performance in which a lone story-teller plays several different roles to
tell comical tales using specific body movements, and how rakugo can be used
in a Japanese language classroom. Rakugo incorporates a comfortable rhythm
of seven-five syllables in a speech, and interesting "in (rhyme)" and "share
(play on words)" are created using synonyms in stories. She will also
explain how to differentiate the speech styles of a man or woman, as
well as emotional expressions in rakugo.
