Quick lessons during lunch
What do you do while eating? For most of us, eating goes hand in hand with streaming online videos or watching TV. In fact, we’d rather dig into a plate of cold food than eat before finding the perfect episode. If you get takeout in Japan, there’s a third, admittedly boring, option you can do.
Takeout comes in cardboard containers with printing on the underside of the lid. The printing will teach you something minor about the country’s geography, popular figures, or random facts about the world. This is definitely a nice touch for students, but we’d rather stick to eating while only watching the first 10 minutes of our favorite TV show that we’ve seen a zillion times.
