About

Welcome to the OMG! (Osaka Multilingual Gathering).

EVERY MONTH we get well over 100 people from various countries around the world! And we have a great time speaking our favorite languages and meeting lots of new people in a very relaxed environment. You can come by yourself (90% of people do). Also, any speaking ability is fine, so please don't by shy!! ;)

So what is the OMG (Osaka Multilingual Gathering)?

Main aim:
Everyone gets to practice all their favorite languages in small groups or 1-on-1, with a bunch of different people including native speakers and dedicated language assistants!

Primary Target Languages:
3 Asian: Japanese/Chinese/Korean
3 European: English/French/Spanish

These are the languages which we organisers and assistants (one native for each language) can speak, but there's always other languages spoken, like portugese, german etc.

Concept: "The 10 Minute Switch"
Once we're ready to start, you'll find a partner or small group with at least one matching language in common that you wish to practice. You'll be given a limited period of time (around 10 minutes!) to converse in that language before the bell rings and you change group or partner, again, with people practicing the same language(s). We have native speakers for each language helping you find a new group during each stage :)

We usually play some fun language related games with the chance to win free drinks! Of course there'll be chance to talk freely too. Sometimes we even have special performers in for extra entertainment during the break!

[メインアイデア]" THE 10 MINUTE SWITCH "
①参加者の方は、まず自分の話したい言語(複数可)を書いたシールを胸に張って頂きます。皆さんの準備が出来たら、自分が話したい言語と一致する最低一人か二人とペアになってもらいます。ある程度の時間がたった後にベルを鳴らすので、再び自分と同じシールを貼っている別の人を探してパートナー交代、というのが簡単な流れです。
※時にこちらかトピックを提案することもあります(新年の抱負/好きな音楽/仕事/趣味/家族など)。
②また、途中でいくつかの言語にフォーカスしたサイドゲームも行い、のちフリータイムに進む予定です☆彡皆さんどうぞお楽しみに^^
[GOAL] everyone gets to practice all their target languages, 1-on-1, with a bunch of different people including native speakers.
[目標] 全ての参加者が、自分の話したい言語を1対1(か1対2)で色んな人と話せること、その中に出来ればネイティブスピーカーがいることを目標にしています^^

Entrance Fee:
The entrance is just ¥500 and most drinks are reduced price for the evening! Also, everybody gets a loyalty card; come 3 times and the next time is free!
