KAI Japanese language school in Tokyo has launched a blog site “Gambalog”, where KAI students share their lives and experiences with friends and families back home. The site began as a result of the Japan earthquake in March. As the devastation of the earthquake was widely broadcast across the world, KAI students needed to reassure their loved ones back home and “Gambalog” was born. Created from the Japanese word “Gambaro” (meaning “let’s give our best”), the blog is written in the students’ mother tongues and is grouped by language (nine in total).
The blogs, written by students with first-hand experience of living and studying in Tokyo since the earthquake, are useful to anyone thinking of travelling to Tokyo to learn Japanese.
