JACCU cordially invites you to a free online workshop, a masterclass on one of the most exciting and challenging sides of the Japanese language – Keigo (敬語)!
No matter how many kanji’s one can read or write, or how much grammar one has mastered, the proper use of honorifics is a key to proficiency and appropriateness in any context.
Join us for this adventure in the basics and origins of Japanese honorifics. Learn and understand the do’s and don’ts, and you will never be perplexed by respectful verb forms again.
Our sensei Hanae Sasaoka, an artist currently living in Amstelveen, will take you through the following topics:
- The difference between あげます・くれます・もらいます
- Types of Keigo 三つの敬語
- Examples and practice 例文・練習
When: 03.April.2021 | 14:00 – 15:00
