As part of its activities, the Tsukuba Information Center sponsors a bilingual discussion group on what usually is the fourth Wednesday of every month (though this month it is early due to the holidays) from 2 to 4 pm, with invited guests giving a presentation from their area of expertise or experience. This month, we are pleased to have Mr. Luca Orazi from Italy, who will be speaking on the subject of Comparative Culture through Japan, Germany and Italy on December 13.
Luca has been a student from Italy studying at the University of Bayreuth in Germany specializing in German literature, culture and history. He came to Tsukuba in September as a trainee at the University of Tsukuba for a short stay, finishing up this month. He will be sharing with us his experiences here in Japan (including biking all the way to Kasama!) as well as his life as a foreigner in Germany and interesting facts about his own country, Italy.
The Coffee Hour is meant to be an informal exchange of information and opinions. English and Japanese are both used with efforts made to make sure those who can't understand one or the other are able to at least get the gist of the conversation. Likewise, you don't need to commit yourself to the entire two hours and can come and go freely. So drop by, whether for a short time or for the entire two hours, and enjoy some free refreshments along with a stimulating discussion.
