The Japanese Skit Contest 2022 Wrap Up!
The Japanese Skit Contest 2022 finally came to its conclusion on 18 March 2023 where we had the Final Screening for 5 finalist teams.
This contest is a collaborative effort between the Embassy of Japan in Malaysia and the Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur. It is part of the effort to enhance communication competency among post-secondary school Japanese language learners in Malaysia.
To enter, the participants are required to be in a team of not more than 10 members and act out in a skit entirely in Japanese. The skit is recorded on video for submission online.
The theme “Onomatopoeia” was chosen for this year’s contest. Onomatopoeia are words taken from the sounds of certain objects and living things such as the sound of glass shattering or the cry of an animal. The main idea behind this theme was to showcase the variety of onomatopeia used in daily life, which is one of the peculiar traits of the Japanese language.
Check out the finalist videos in the Final Screening compilation below!
