Kompa – Group Dating Japanese Style

Who’s interested in Kompa? (Japanese Style Group Dating) .. Like This post on Facebook if you’re interested, if enough people (both Men & Women) like it we’ll arrange something in central London before Valentines.

Kompa (also known as compa or  gōkon) is where groups of singles go out on a group date, it happens commonly in Japan.

The average event brings together around three to five people of each gender and takes place at a restaurant or izakaya (Japanese-style bar). Groups are seated randomly, usually with seats alternating by gender so everyone can get to know each other better.

English Language Practice Mixer Event in London

Every year thousands of people come to London with the goal of improving their spoken and listening skills in English. They need people to practice with and opportunities to meet native speakers. This event has been set up to help bring together both native English Speakers and those learning.

If you’re looking to improve your English or looking to meet people from abroad and help them with their English join this Event.

 

This will be our first English Language Practice Event in central London. So we plan to keep things pretty informal.

The meetups are just like any other, but with more activities designed to get people talking and interacting and more efforts being put into finding venues that are quiet enough to hold a conversation.

We plan the evening to be very social and allow people time to socialise and mix and mingle, but we’d also like to introduce some friendly games to the event such as below. Please note we expect everyone attending to take part in the games so only come if you’re prepared to join in.

 

On the Flip Side – People will have the name of something or someone famous written on a sticker and stuck on their backs so they can’t see what is written. E.g. Barack Obama, Michael Jackson, Mickey Mouse, Eiffel Tower, etc

Each person will then have to go around the room, meeting and talking to people asking questions to find out what is written on their backs. The questions can only be answered with YES or NO.

You can ask each person you meet 3 questions before you have to move on to someone new. When a person’s identity is discovered, they can continue answering questions for the others.

The venue has some terrific food on offer. we suggest that those that want to eat come a little earlier and treat themselves to the Italian Food being served.

8pm – Meet Downstairs in Bar (mix and Mingle)

9pm – Party Game – On the Flip Side

10pm – Relax and Chat to People

Free 6 Weeks Beginners Salsa Dancing Classes – Starts Thursday 20th January

This is by far the best Salsa Class we’ve ever done and amazingly enough it’s totally free to beginner’s. (more advanced alessons are available for a fee)

What’s cool about this class is a number of things.

  • The classes are taught in a dedicated room with hard wooden floors – unlike some other places which are taught in crowded and noisy bars this venue is the perfect place to learn.
  • Normally only 1 class is taught at a time – with other Salsa Places they can teach as many as Four Classes in a single room, which makes things noisy, confusing and is far from a great experience.
  • The teacher is extremely experienced, having taught in over 50 countries around the world.
  • The classes are very social, you’ll learn to count the beats of the music, keep time and for the guys even practise asking a girl to dance
  • Because this is a set 6 week course you will see progress from week to week
  • After the lessons we will take people to a nearby bar by Camden Lock where people can get to know their fellow classmates, have a drink and some food.

Things to keep in mind

  • The lessons start early – for most people 6pm is hard to get from work – please only come if you’re sure you can get to Chalk Farm for 6pm each week for 6 weeks
  • The classes taught will be LA Style Salsa
  • This is a set 6 week course – please only join if you’re sure you can make the classes for 6pm each week for the entire 6 weeks. This helps the teacher to maintain numbers and keep the correct ratio of men to women.
  • Course begins Thursday 20th January and ends 24th Febuary 2011
