47 Tips For Choosing Your Sports Club: 部活ぶかつ? サークル?


47 Tips For Choosing Your Sports Club: 部活ぶかつ? サークル?

Did you join a club when you were still in junior high or high school? It’s a great way to meet people with similar interests, do an activity you enjoy, learn more about an activity you’re interested in. Today, let me introduce 47 clubs and what different between 部活ぶかつ or クラブ and サークル are today.

部活ぶかつ (bukatsu)/ クラブ (kurabu)

Team / Club / Extracurriculars

部活ぶかつ and クラブ are the absolutely same meaning, so you can use both when you feel easy to use. Actually, join or belong to team or club means 所属しょぞくする however, basically using 所属しょぞくする is a little bit stiff for native speakers, so I recommend you that you could use 部活ぶかつ/クラブにはいる or 部活ぶかつ/クラブをする would be much natural for us, native speakers instead of 部活ぶかつ/クラブに所属しょぞくする.

サークル (sa-kuru)

Meetup / Group

サークル is one of the Japanese-English words that means meetup or group. Compared to 部活ぶかつ and クラブ (team and club) at the junior high or high school, サークル (meetup or group) has a lot of flexibility, such as the activity of サークル is once a week or something. It is not five days a week. Furthermore, the majority of サークル doesn’t have an advisor to the サークル, unlike 部活ぶかつ or クラブ. It is like a group for just the hobby and it is not serious.
