A Day In A Kanji Class - Part 1

I was going through the videos taken during the time when I was in PPKTJ, the place where I did my foundation before coming to Japan; when I came across a folder which the name 大笑い & 演劇 (Oowarai & Engeki), meaning Comedy & Sketch. It was held sometime after we had finished our finals and just waiting to finish our course in PPKTJ.
There were lots of funny videos there, but I picked the one which emerged as the winner during the one-day-competition. It was a sketch about how a kanji class is like in PPKTJ. It was done totally in Japanese, but to those who don't even know a single Japanese word; no worries as I had put the subtitles in the videos. So, you don't have any excuse not to watch it, unless you can't read.
The whole sketch was quite long and I have edited them into 3 parts. For the next three entries, it will be the sketch entitled "A Day In A Kanji Class - PPKTJ's Reminiscence". Here is the Part 1 where the class started off with a kanji test.

Now, don't tell anyone that I am the one who give you the tips of cheating during an exam.

@ reena:
omg! you can't even recognise your own ka ch'ng?

your technique is one of the most effective way as well, although it's not the first time i hear that technique. no wonder now you can write nothing but only the word 人 =P

They really acted well~~
Thx Calvin for putting up subtitle..

Reena said...

i can very well write more than just that one character thank u very much. i may have always failed but it was just below the pass mark kinda fails so I WASNT THAT BAD LOL.

calvin said...

@ amalina comel~haha~:
i thought we were in the same class that time, no? i have the rest of the videos with me, and if i have some free time again (after my exam perhaps), i will edit that bawang merah and bawang putih sketch and put it up.

i guess the video had served its purpose here. my initial intention was to let us reminisce those moments in ppktj. yes, life goes on, but those sweet memories will still remain =)

@ ns29:
chan and syawal will easily take away the best actor award if there was one that time.
it took me some time editing and putting the subtitles into the video, but i guess it was worth it. nice thing that you enjoyed it =)

calvin said...

@ reena:
you are very much welcome =D
but when you fail it, it will still remain as a 'fail', and nothing will change that. not even the so-called 'just below the pass mark' will make your result look any better =P

Reena said...

aiyah anw. my chinese-learning days in sch are already over. (:
i still find it hard to believe that person cheating is u lol. see over n over again to scrutinise also its like... 10% look like u n thats it haha.

but.. the ay u unfold the last piece of paper then look at it. somehow reminds me of the way ah mah acts also lol.

amalina said...

same class eh?nihongo?i remember being in the same kagaku class wif u...but nihongo wa ne....oboetenai...ahaks...gomen~

calvin said...

@ reena:
you know why? coz you got the 10% posibility of that guy cheating in the video as your ka ch'ng totally wrongly. i just could not believe how on earth you could have the thought of that guy being me -.-ll

and yes, that folding paper style anyway reminds me of what ah mah used to do =)

calvin said...

@ amalina:
to be honest, i could not really recall which class we were in last time. the classes changed too many times already =)

Reena said...

chey. so my first instinct was right la.. =.=|| its not u pfft

calvin said...

@ reena:
always trust your first instict coz it usually will turn out to be the most accurate one =D
