Why learn Kansai-ben?
In Japan, like many places in the world, even though there is one common language, people may speak very differently depending on where they live; sometimes different enough that even native speakers may have trouble understanding each other. In fact, the "standard" Japanese that is usually taught to learners of Japanese is not really used anywhere, and is rarely heard except from news announcers. Many students of Japanese have lost their confidence in their ability because, even though they studied Japanese for years, they could not understand actual conversations where a heavy dialect is spoken. Of course, almost all Japanese can converse and understand a "standard" Japanese dialect, but not being able to fluidly participate in the world around you can be frustrating and limiting.
