木津川市の国際交流・異文化講座「まったLEE・BRIAN」2 – Kizugawa City International Exchange Series “Comfortab-LEE BRIAN” 2

木津川市の国際交流・異文化講座「まったLEE・BRIAN」第2回を開きました。第2回では、アメリカと台湾のあいさつや生活習慣について話しました。市の英語指導助手のコンスタス・デービッドさんと一緒に、様々なあいさつの手本を見せ、日常生活によく使うジェスチャーを紹介しました。そして、インターネットで見た外国人から見たアメリカらしさと台湾らしさを紹介し、それぞれの文化的な背景や事情を説明し、参加者と討論しました。

次回は、アメリカと台湾の食べ物とそれぞれの和食事情を紹介する予定です。頑張ります!

木津川講座

Hey, y’all.

I had my second lecture of “Comfortab-LEE BRIAN” International Exchange Series. This time I introduced the greetings and lifestyles of the US and Taiwan. I demonstrated how we greet each other in the US with David Constas, the city’s ALT, and we explained some frequently used gestures. Then, I introduced some things that are thought as “typically American” and “typically Taiwan” by people on the Internet. We debunked, explained, and discussed those myths with the participants.

In my next lecture, I would like to discuss the food culture of the US and Taiwan, as well as the localization of Japanese food. I’ll try my best to make another fun presentation!
