Our native speakers are quite happy to introduce you to their centuries-old culture. Many patient advanced students blend their knack for language learning with their enthusiasm for sharing.
Japanese friends - all fluent native speakers - serve as volunteer sensei-figures, and learners of ALL LEVELS meet to teach, learn, and practice speaking Japanese and writing Kanji, Kana, or Romaji. A small study group is more conducive to language learning! Thus, we will expand to additional tables as necessary.
This is also a great opportunity to discuss Japan and its internationally prominent culture, as well as the difficult issues that arise in any such discourse.
