Links for December 9th

This week, we wish good luck to the participants of CLAIR’s Interpreting and Translating Course. They will undergo training for five intense days. I, and many Shimane JETs, took the training last year. It was fun to be out of ‘regular’ life for a week.

Once again, we have a collection of links. Please let us know if you have any suggestions. All articles and opinions are presented as-is and do not necessarily reflect the personal opinions of the PAs or the JET Programme.

My Top 3 Japanese words of the last week were:

和牛[わぎゅう・Wagyu]: “Wagyu” Japanese beef

別腹[べつばら・betsubara]: “2nd stomach” to eat dessert

グローバル化[ぐろーばるか・guroobaruka]: Globalization

Finally, the joy and/or horror on this little girl made me smile. Maybe it will make you smile too.
