Description

Wooden Chopsticks, Metal Chopsticks:
Grab Japanese and Korean Culture through the Languages

Admission:
FREE (RSVP Requested)

Co-hosted by Korean Cultural Center, LA

Japan and Korea are neighboring countries that share many similarities and contrasts in customs and language. For example, both countries use chopsticks but did you know that the types of chopstick are different? What other similarities or differences do these countries share?

In this lecture, by sampling from various Korean and Japanese video clips, we will explore some unique aspects of the two cultures, especially as it connects to how people communicate with one another.
This lecture is for everyone--regardless of your previous knowledge of either country's language. All are welcomed to explore the two cultures with us.

After the lecture, you will enjoy a tasting of Korean and Japanese food and beverages and be able to “grab” an understanding of the two cultures!
