Did you know Japanese has more onomatopoeia than almost any other language in the world, next only to Korean? Virtually everything you experience—sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste–-can all be vividly expressed with onomatopoeia. In this workshop, students learn different groups of onomatopoeia such as giongo and gitaigo, covering many topics including animal sounds, weather, health, action, and of course, food! Students will act out a scene from manga, explore fun sound effects, and feel the power of descriptive writing using onomatopoeia.
