Our friend and supporter, Benny Benny the Irish Polyglot, has recently taken up learning Japanese. Here’s a fun little video that he put together which also features our italki Japanese teacher Yuri. (more…)
Check out the following music video created by our italki member Brian Kwong and his friends from the +1 Challenge (who are all italki members). This happy little video also features many of our italki Japanese Teachers including Noriko, Mayumi, Hanoko, Hiroshi, and Yuri who are singing, dancing, and doing all sorts of goofy things while signing a fun little Japanese tune.
It just goes to show you that…
Learning Language is more fun with friends! : )
The other great thing about this video is that it shows what can be done when like-minded people are able to connect with one another to make language learning fun! This is exactly the reason why we built italki – to make human connections between language learners and language teachers. We wanted to say thanks again to Brian and his friends from the +1 Challenge and our Japanese teachers who helped create this fun little video.
You just need to watch it for yourself. It will definitely put a smile on your face.
As part of the +1 Challenge, one of the cool things he is doing is a Youtube video, which needs the help of our beloved Japanese teachers on italki, check out the message from Brian [in English and Japanese]:
Hi, my name is Sam Bleakly, and I’m the community manager here at italki.com. I’m also an enthusiastic traveler, and an amateur language learner. I am currently learning Mandarin Chinese, as I live and work in China, but I don’t speak Spanish, German, French or any other Romance language fluently – so I’m certainly not a linguist. I’m just a regular guy who is lazy at the best of times. In May, however, I finally got motivated to learn a new language. Read on to find out how I did it!
