This is an opportunity to practice Japanese conversation, and discuss and study the grammar, particles, Kanji, and culture. The topic varies among all these, according to what people are interested in talking about and the natural flow of conversation.
Members of all levels are welcome, from absolute beginners on up, and there is never a prerequisite. Native speakers are also encouraged to attend, both to lend their expertise and to receive the benefit of a look at the structure of Japanese from an outside linguistic perspective.
Here's a photo of the area where we meet, for reference:
The meeting is free, with no membership dues, hourly costs, or other expenses.
