So, I was chatting last night to @OmukaiAndi on the Study Discord thread about the Japanese Bookclub discord (which is where the Laid Back Camp bookclub does its weekly readings), and I got to thinking…
… a few years ago I watched a youtube video of a bunch of guys reading vol.1 of Yotsuba, and it was great. Everyone took a turn reading a panel or a page or something and then discussed the meaning and the grammar etc.
I’d love to do that, especially with Yotsuba. This could be a project for the Yotsuba bookclub when it gets to the end of vol 14 perhaps, or we could start any time. I reckon something like that would be great! We could start with volume one, or even a later volume. If we told everyone on the forums in advance, I’m sure plenty of people would be interested.
It could be a straight reading (like the LBC group does), or it could be something like Foxumon does, where everything is broken down. So, everyone turns up, and takes it in turns to read (by allotting characters, or just taking speech bubbles in turn), and then go over the grammar and whatnot. It could be pitched at higher level readers, or at total beginners (I’d prefer the latter of course! lol!).
What do you think?
