すいようび - Lesson 11 Culture Discussion Due Today

おはよう!

Here's what's happening in class today:


  • Today the Lesson 11 Culture Discussion is due.
  • Don't forget that you will need to read and leave two insightful comments on your classmates' posts!
  • Go to coaching! It's the most important assignment each week!


In the discussion, you'll have to talk about 4 different traditional new year's foods and their significance.


Then, you'll create your OWN version of おせちりょうり, and include two Japanese and two non-Japanese foods that are significant to YOU!


For this, you'll need to do some web research - don't forget to cite your sources of pictures and information!

はやいですね!

Wow! Chris S. and Miranda have already gotten a head start on their culture discussion for today! Way to go guys!

あけましておめでとうございます!

This week's culture discussion is all about the traditional foods eaten during new year's holidays in Japan.


Some foods you already have learned about include おぞうに, which is a soup with もち in it and other items. おぞうに differs from region to region, with delicious results!


Another favorite traditional new years food is としこしそば, which is extra long soba noodles that represent long life and health in the new year!


The main item you will learn about this week is おせちりょうり, (or おせち, for short) a meal comprised of boxes packed with delicious symbolic food for health and happiness in the new year. Each food item inside the おせち has a special meaning. You can learn more about a few of my favorites below, and then read the linked article to read about even more!

You can order your おせちりょうり well in advance!
